If you like the idea of stepping back into the 20s or 30s, this is the hotel for you. I kept waiting of Mr. Poirot and Captain Hastings to show up to either a) solve the crime or b) take tea in a wicker chair on the back porch. However, if you're not into slanted floorboards, hearing muffled neighboring room conversations, open window breezes and chatting with the Hungarian college students working here over summer break, this is not the place for you. Only TVs are in the lounges downstairs and keys are old-fashioned in the locks sort of affairs. Great views, atmosphere, and the same shuffleboard courts that have been there for decades. Staying after Labor Day, it was mostly and older crowd or 30/40 somethings with preschoolers or couples (as would make sense). I can't imagine what this place would be like at the height of summer. Friendly staff, an excellent hot breakfast, a hot shower, all is well. Note: Due to being able to hear people about/outside, I ended up turning on a tower fan that was in my room not because it was warm, but because I was trying to create some background white noise. Helped a little with sleeping. A neat place, but not for everyone.
