This is a Victorian era building and definitely shows its age. The hotel is attractive on the outside and just across the street from the beach. The lobby seems to double as an antique shop and appears cluttered. We were part of a group staying five nights and check-in was efficient. We later asked about the availabilioty of a safe and were told that there was none. To get to our third floor room there was a choice of stairs or an ancient small elevator. You had to ask the desk to summon the operator for the elevator. In off hours the person behind the desk had to abandon whatever she was working on to operate the elevator. The room itself was a disappointment. We looked out on air conditioning equipment on the roof of the motel next door. The sink was not in the bathroom but was in the sleeping area.The mirror was not over the sink. We had been advised that there were no phones in the room and that contact with the desk was limited to your personal cell phone. There was a phone next to the elevator which was used to summon the elevator from an upper floor. We found no problem with the pool area or the bar. Our group was assigned a specific area of the dining room. On balance the food was good to very good, but with limited choices. Our meeting room was too cold. We found all of the staff to be welcoming and helpful.
