Incredibly friendly staff and a great location on the water! Well maintained property and we loved the easy access to the ferry to the Norfolk Waterside. We would definitely return to this hotel!

Not bad at all!

The mattress was not comfortable! The staff was great and so was the service. Easy location to get to many attractions. You do have to pay for parking and parking on the street is limited.
