Positive Reviews


Elegant Property.

Set in a beautifully refurbished mansion, this hotel and its property are well maintained and tasteful, exuding historic charm. Guests describe the grounds as elegant simplicity. The property and hotel are historic, yet lovingly maintained.


Excellent Location.

You'll find yourself just a short walk to the beach, with shops and restaurants close by as well. You can either take a leisurely stroll into town to visit its boutique style shops, or you can take advantage of the hotel's complimentary shuttle to and from town.


Outstanding Breakfast Service.

You'll be amazed by the sumptuous spread provided at the breakfast buffet, including eggs and waffles cooked-to-order, along with fresh fruits, sliced meats, and premium pastries.

Negative Reviews


Parking Issues.

There is no on-site parking at this hotel. Instead, parking is on a first come first serve basis on the street; however, most guests do not have a problem finding available spaces. Valet service is not offered.


Small Rooms.

Rooms are very small and feel cramped. Guests say it's hard to maneuver around, especially if you have special needs or are in a wheelchair. Bathrooms are even tinier and guests say your knees could end up under the sink when you sit down on the toilet.


Windows and Noise.

Rooms lack air conditioning, although they do offer fans and the windows open; however, with the windows open, you're liable to hear noise from the streets.
