It was our first time renting at Holiday Harbor, having boated on Shasta before and rented houseboats in the Delta as well.
The loading experience was challenging because they had very little access space near the dock area. Cars had to fight for space and even then, it was tough. Service was pretty good and efficient (including the mid-week refueling and tank dumping). The boat itself (Empress) was well designed by definitely more beat up than I would have expected. All the window blinds were damaged. The rooftop railings were loose. One of the bathrooms stunk pretty badly and there was no tank deodorizer provided (lame). One of the refridgerators didn't stay cold enough (milk spoiled well before the expiration date.) There was a big rip in the kitchen linolium. Bottom line is that the boat was pretty worn.
It was a great trip (houseboating on Shasta is great!) and nothing about the boat or the service at Holiday Harbor really took away from that, but I think next time we'll try another marina for rental.
