Neat little place for the price. It's a really old hotel that's been nicely updated right by the ferry landing. The lobby area is especially nice. Rooms aren't fantastic, but they're clean with no carpet. We had a dirt-dauber (wasp) in our room, but we handled it. Beds are hard, but perfectly fine for a night's stay before a cruise.... More

We stayed here the night before our three back to back cruises and the night we arrived back in port from the last cruise. The hotel staff is extremely friendly and had our room ready for us earlier than we expected. Very clean and roomy hotel rooms. The cruise parking is in the front of the business and they have...

Plenty of closet space and a nice looking pool. The bathroom was clean and the shower was hot with excellent water pressure. The bed was a bit on... More

We stayed here the night before our cruise and the night after the cruise. It was ok for one night each time. The place is off of the beaten path and there is nothing close by in way of eating places. The guy checking us in each time was a bit odd and not really very helpfull. The person checking... More

This hotel was clean and simple. It had a small refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and flat screen TV. Our room's bathroom had updated tile. The shower had good water flow. The mattress is laying on a box. It didn't leave my back in kinks. The grounds were well kept and the pool looked nice and attractive. It is the last... More

The motel was clean and very easy to find. The staff was very friendly. The motel is older, but you can tell they are making a concerted effort to update the rooms. The breakfast was a little less then we are used to getting, more of a continental breakfast, but the eating area was clean and had plenty of seating.... More

We stayed one night before a weeks long cruise. The hotel is not far from the cruise terminal. Actually the hotel is right at the ferry. Someone from the hotel staff took us to the terminal and we were able to park our car for the week. There is covered parking while you stay at the hotel but uncovered the... More

Lobby is decorated in 70's style, strange, but new and clean. Room was very clean, new fixtures and tile in bathroom. Staff were very helpful. If you don't have a car you will need to get a taxi to get something to eat...$12.00 takes you to downtown and many good choices. Nobody delivers. We were concerned about the ferry being... More
