8.0 Very good
Pros:Great location to walk to wharf/pier/ cruise locations and variety of restaurants. . Nice hotel. Outdoor firepits for eating and drinking really great value during COVID restrictions
Cons:It would have been nice to be able to access movies or our own streaming accounts on the awesome/ large TV screen. Local cable tv offerings were many, but not particularly interesting.
2.0 Poor
Pros:Tv Didn’t work I emailed hotel they did not respond to me.
Cons:Tv didn’t work at all. Bad reception bad tv system.
7.4 Good
Pros:Staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Room was clean and physically comfortable. Location is nice for sightseeing.
Cons:This was the loudest hotel room that I have ever stayed in. Pedestrian and vehicle traffic outside was so loud in the room that I felt like I was sleeping in the middle of an intersection. This noise lasted until 10-11 pm every night and started up again at 430 every morning. Every step by the people staying in the room above sounded like an elephant stomping around, and they stayed active until 2 am some nights.
6.5 Okay
Pros:Location was close to the wharf area. Room size was very generous.
Cons:A lot of noise at night even though I was on the highest floor. Bathroom is very old and small. Someone stole my iPad while I was there so safety concerns.

4.5 Mediocre
