The hotel it's is nice. I actually liked the way breakfast was setup. I preferred the individual drinks over the machines. My daughter was a huge fan of the cereal. They had a nice variety of muffins and fruits. The room was very spacious and the shower was nice. However it was extremely dark in the room. I very much did not like that as I love light. You could hear everything through the very thin walls and since we were there when it was foggy all I could hear all night was the ferry horns. I also thought the bed was extremely firm and the couch was hard. The sofa sleeper mattress felt like laying on the ground. I personally felt both the bed and the sofa mattress did. The plugs on the one side of the bed did not work. I liked that there was space in the room. There was a nice microwave and a fridge as well. I enjoyed that it was quite in the main area most of the time. The staff were very nice and had a quick check in. The eating area was always cleaned quickly during breakfast. The housekeepers did an excellent job with the rooms. They also had adequate towels and soft blankets. The ac worked very well. I also want to mention the hotel was in a really good area. You could walk quickly to different eateries and do to some shopping. Overall I would give the place a 4/5.

Huge room. Nice and efficient staff. Reasonably priced. Great location, but be ready for ferry lines that may slow your approach to the hotel. Beds super comfy with great air flow. Only negative is that the walls are thin so you can hear other folks noise.

poor lighting in room. Had to play with the switch to get the light/fan to go on. A/C leaked water onto the breakfast area so most of it was blocked off. Breakfast left much to be desired. Waffles were soggy. Found a bug in our bed. Staff was rude at times. No place to sit outside. Had to sit on the concrete ground. Shower curtain was to short so water leaked all over the floor from the shower. Not horrible but disappointing for the price paid. Will stay somewhere else next year.

Although it’s still going through some reconstruction (Hurricane Harvey), the portion that’s open is very nice. The rooms need to be a little brighter, but otherwise it was very nice.

Nice

The staff was really nice. The room was very nice and roomy. Very clean. Except there was still some sand in the shower from the last people. Toilet paper still in the trash can. When I showered the mist showed that there was writing on the mirror from the last time someone took a shower. ( they used the mist to write something) so that would mean they did not clean the mirror. I found a bottle cap from the last people also on the floor. So they didn't really clean all the floor. Over all everything about the hotel was great. But just those thing were something they need to work on. They did just open 2 weeks. So hopefully if they fix those things. It'll be perfect. :)
