                Really nice view!! We stayed on he 2nd floor---3rd floor and above would be much nicer!! Loved the breakfast at the satelite ate there every morning.

                The floors outside are very slippery!! Should be replaced with something more abrasive!! They are slippery even when not wet. I had an unfortunate accident our 2nd eve there. Steps where wet and sandy, not taken care of, I slipped and fell backwards down the steps, ended up at the hospital in salsbury,with a head injury and the management called the next day concerned,but that was about it!! No discount on our room or anything!! We will never stay there again!!!!!!! I advise all who go there--WATCH how you walk!!! Oh,our bathroom ( if thats what u want to call it)had no hot water!!!

                only the view

                I did not like the quality of the hotel. The staff just seemed ok. The only thing I really liked was the view. I would not stay there again.

                I was very unhappy with the room and hotel, There was trash all over the hallways, broken ice mechaine, there was nasty dirty towels & sheets in the hallway, broken ice cooler from some one room, broken vaccum, bags of trash! Bugs all over the place! Our bathroom sink would not drain and they sent some one out 3 times to fix it who did not fix it just made a mess in the sink & bathroom and didnt clean up after there self our safe in the room was broke and wouldnt unlock and then we had to wait over 30 mins to have some one come up and open it all 3 days! Then they still charge us for it! The pool was dirty, The cafe they have on site they were nasty and not friendly, the food was nasty! I was very unhappy for my stay and I would not stay there again.

                Great price for the location. Allowed us to check in early. Rooms were very clean and staff was friendly. We talked with who I assume was the owner/manager several times as he was always around premises.
