The location is unbeatable. Not more than a 5 minute walk to the harbor, restaurants, and shops. There's a great farmer's porch with comfortable wicker furniture w/cushions that's great for people watching. The room was very clean and comfortable. The sheets were very crisp and clean, and the towels were plush. Staff was very friendly. There's lots of common areas in which to play games, log onto your computer, watch tv, or read. Morning coffee was provided in the "dining room" downstairs. Very quaint, old home feel.
