The hotel was recommended by a friend. We were very pleased with where the hotel was located and the price was the best on the island. The front desk and housekeeping was very helpful and friendly, we even watched them mop the front patio bricks. Our room was very nice and the sun deck was great when you wanted to relax. The only thing I could recommend because it is an older but updated hotel would be to have a portable fan in the room. The windows and doors do not have screens to allow you to leave them open and it would be helpful with air circulation. There are room air conditioner and heaters however, if you leave them on they click on and off to reach the temperature you want which can be noisy. The portable fan would drown out any sliding glass door opening of people coming in and out. That was not a deal breaker, it was very minimal noise and a great place to stay. We will be staying here again when we return. It was a quaint little hotel right near it all. Thank you it was a great great trip!
