Nice hotel, sorry the restaurant was closed a few days a week due to Covid. The tubs faucet had a very bad leak which traveled inside the wall and out into the hallway. Management was alerted. Television shows are minimal.

property was fine. Room was not cleaned, service was really bad. Didn't have towels, and when ask for them they gave us towels that were not folded. That is a few of the things. Have stayed there before and it was nice. Will NOT stay there again

Nice hote

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, complimentary coffee starting @ 6:30
We enjoyed our stay at the Waterfront. It was very clean, the beds were comfortable and the maid staff did a wonderful job. We had lunch at the hotel on one occasion and it was great. Really good home-made soup. We liked that it was in the villages, lots of little boutique types shops and a number of different places to eat. Both places close the the hotel that we ate had great food. We'd go back to this hotel again. You could also get a discount for being an AAA or AARP member.

Very welcoming staff....despite our late night check -in!

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: No free Internet
Only problem was lack of parking....though we were allowed to park in the "Valet" lot after "circling" a couple of times!
