    For a night stay, this place works. It's kinda old, but the beds are good. The bathrooms are being upgraded but still it is just a older place. The rooms are outside entrances. Parking is problematic. But it is close to the ferry.

    What a great place... the rooms were clean (which is very important) and you can tell they've done some renos which made the stay a little nicer (at least it did for us). We liked how close it was to everything and from the ferry...More
