"does the fridge have to be down on the floor? old people with sore bones have a hard time with that. 'just saying. "
"Harbour views with a choice of queen, double or king beds."
"Restaurant just OK"
"Unless its a family or something do not book single people beside an ajoining room. Thats unthoughtful and ruins sleep if you habe neighbors"
"We always try to get a deluxe King room, on the ocean side, on a higher floor. Really beautiful."
