We stayed three nights in mid April and enjoyed our spacious two room suite. The furnishings were older but in good shape. Bedding was very comfortable and provided a good night’s sleep. This is definitely an older property that in many areas is showing its age. However, management informed us they are in the process of making improvements and we can attest to changes that have taken place, particularly in the cocktail lounge / dining area that is one of the major highlights of this hotel. Thursday thru Saturday evenings starting at 6 PM, Al Martin is the featured bistro pianist playing good old fashioned harmonies. The man is absolutely amazing in his ability to play every tune from memory when requested to play a song. The dance floor was frequently occupied by couples dancing to old time tunes. The entire staff was excellent, particularly at the front desk when we were greeted each time we entered the building. The pool is located in a central courtyard, protected from the wind off the bay, and had plenty of chairs and chaise lounges. The breakfast area is huge with plenty of tables. Unfortunately, the food served was less than satisfactory. Very poor variety and limited selection of items which is rather strange in light of having a “restaurant” within the hotel. Our first two mornings had only waffles as a choice. No eggs, biscuits & gravy, etc. . . just waffles. After complaining to management, there was a tasty egg casserole the last morning but when it was consumed, nothing replaced it while we were there. Overall, we enjoyed our stay but not sure about returning again other than to enjoy the piano player in the lounge.
