“New owners have raised rates but dashed hopes for any improvement!”
Reviewed 19 August 2011

This small group of cottages was sold to new owners and they claimed that the rate increase from $800 to $1400 for a cottage was due to all the great improvements. One window air conditioner, a TV and WiFi that hardly ever works does not warrant the price increase. The cottages remain with the same furniture and decor which you didn't mind when it was a cheap beach cottage. For the price of a two bedroom cottage - we paid $1,800 plus tax you would expect some housekeeping services. We had to go ask for new towels after 4 days of staying here. The bedspreads are dingy and stained and there is hardly enough TP or other household products to warrant the supposed improvements. We complained about the lack of WiFi availability about every other day as it was hardly ever available. Due to the new owners renting the main house, parking was difficult to accommodate all the cars. The place actually had many nights were no one was in the different cottages which was unheard of in prior years. We wanted to use their laundry room but that was broken too! They advertise gas grills but there isn't enough for every cottage so we had to wait and take one from another cottage. I couldn't even tell you the names of the new owners as they certainly didn't go out of their way to make us feel welcomed. There was definite work going on such as painting while we were here but was being done in a sloppy manner. I really was disappointed that the place had not improved like they advertised and I certainly won't be coming back. Anyone who had stayed here before these new owners will surely be disappointed. Friendship Motor Lodge which is right next door is a much better deal for the money!
