My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Our room had a nice flow and utilize the balcony that came with our room. Dan is super nice and was able to get us checked in early. The walk to the harbor/beach/restaurants did not take longer than 5-10 mins to States St. Will definitely stay here again.

This place is small and beautiful. It is close to the beach. There are not many parkings, but no difficulty in parking. The room is simple and clean. The sofa bed mattress is nice and firm. I also like the filtered water tap. It is quite at night and we slept well. We enjoyed the stay and we will consider the place next time in-town.
