Questions & Answers
Ask a question
Didn't want to post this as a review but wanted to directly give feedback to the General Manager on our experience so he/she can fix a wrong for future guests. We stayed in Marina Suite Room 2009 over the course of Nov 22-24. This was a family trip made with a a lot of research and comparing hotels in the area as we wanted a home away from home experience. Unfortunately the hotel room on question was not what was reflected in the pictures and specifically was disappointing as it didn't include a fireplace. Also unlike the picture when in the living room we basically stared at a wall rather than being able to see outside. Now we did complain and the management and staff was completely professional about the situation and tried their best to make it right and ended up offering dinner in lieu of the getting one of the marina suites that doesn't have a fireplace. My only hope now is that future guests don't experience the same disappointment and put your staff in the same uncomfortable situation...you have a great facility and things like this are easily fixable. On your website either please stop listing fireplace as a a feature in your marina suites or treat the two suites that don't have one as a different room type altogether so you're transparent with your guests upfront when booking. Also stop listing the work desk as a furniture in the Marina suites as that was missing also -- not sure if that was unique to our suite though. In addition train your reservation staff that not all marina sites have the bedrooms on the same floor as that what was communicated to me when I inquired about the marina suites before booking. Thanks again for the experience...all in all our family enjoyed the hospitality. Thanks. Naveen

Our experience in the Maine hotel was very similar. Small room with overstated amenities and no view.

Ours did. However it was a suite and it was one of those bubble-jet tubs. Very nice but a bit dated and the shower head was broken/inop.
