    Breakfast is quite simple without any hot foods , but there are bread heaters. Swimming pool is ok for swimming and water is clean. There are ants in the bath room and main room . They are many but small.

    You'll have to walk to the beachfront and then up State Street, but it's about half an hour in total. Or you can walk to Stearns Wharf (about 10 minutes) and get the free shuttle up to the Downtown areas.

    No views from our room. We were in the first floor. I would not expect great views, since the hotel is a block or so from the coast, and it is not a tall building.
