Clean and bed is comfortable, but I felt that it is Pricey. Maybe because of the location, and the accessibility to most attractions and shops.

Lovely hotel, across the street from the ferry. 2 restaurants onsite were fabulous breakfast and dinner.. Rooms remodeled and clean, beds comfortable, shower had good water pressure. Downtown stores one block away. Would definitely stay here again.

This is a great place to stay. I like the chairs overlooking the harbor and the Ice House serves great ribs.

They had a great front porch for watching the world go by. Very comfortable beds! Great luggage service from the ferries to the hotel so we did not have to carry our luggage through town.
