"Nice Decor"

The hotel manager was a pleasure to deal with and the price was hard to beat in the snowy off-season. We were assigned to a beautiful nautical themed remodeled room with a private balcony - even the patio furniture was cush. The rooms on the other side of the building had porches with plastic furniture, so I am not sure all the rooms have been upgraded to the extent ours was. Continental breakfast was included. No view to speak of, but that was traded for the walk-able, central location.
