Nice Older Style hotel
Nice older style Hotel with pleasant surroundings. Only downside was quality of pool towels and the noseeums, make sure you take insect repellent!

Could do better
Nice but our stay was ruined by the noise and dust from renovating the hot tub on a Saturday! Approaching management produced a could not care less attitude. The simple restaraunt is very good, if management were more concerned about their guests the score would be higher

Capitalism wins over service
In the US, and in a captive market, you cannot blame any hotel owner for charging whatever the market will bear and this location and this area is hugely popular in season. It is that factor that dictates the price here rather than any sense of value delivered at this lack-lustre, tired and somewhat run-down establishment. Anyone used to paying these sort of prices to stay in a premium hotel will be sorely disappointed by the level of service and the quality of accommodation. A thoughtful call to the room after I checked in to ask if everything was OK was followed up by a laugh and a "yes, it's like that" when I said the air-conditioner rattled so much as to make sleep and air-conditioning simultaneously impossible. It shouldn't be like that, not at these prices, and a guest should not be treated with dismissive disdain when he points it out. And also - at these top-end rates - why not have the courtesy to put a couple of bottles of (yes, it can be cheap) drinking water in the room rather than say "you can get sodas from the vending machine", or provide soap that will be enough to provide for more than a couple of small hand-washes. You can tell that the owners have lost any sense of making guests feel like guests, but the TV reception is good. So yes, congratulations on a commercial basis to the owners forcharging what they can get away with - that's capitalism for you - but if you have a choice to stay somewhere else I suggest you take it.
