The staff at the Hotel Angela won me over when we arrived on a very early flight and they had us moved into our room before most people would be finished breakfast. (I wouldn't expect that on a weekend or if a hotel were 100% full, but plenty of places won't make the effort when they have rooms available.) They were nice & helpful throughout our stay.
The location on the north edge of town was perfect--not loud, but not distant.
The waterfront restaurant, incongruously named the Chocolate Martini, was welcoming and the food was well prepared. The owners made a point of letting us know we were welcome to just hang out for hours with a coffee or soda. (That's not something you would normally want to do, of course, but it was bucketing down rain for awhile, so we didn't want to get out on the water.)
The room was spartan and the walls a bit thin, so you really wouldn't want to hang out there long. But it was clean, the water was hot and the air conditioning was cold.
