Well maintained and operated
Excellent service during breakfast friendly staff all around
Very limited selection for emergency food supplies. But in all honesty several stores with walking distance.
Away from the hustle and bustle
Quiet, easy to get to (from ferry), convenient if visiting East Beach... Very close to East Beach, and The Strand is a quick, easy drive away, as is UTMB (Hospital). I would describe this s more of a neighborhood hotel, versus tourist focused. There is a small pool in front of hotel (next to basketball court)- nothing luxurious, but at least there is a pool (small & clean).
Placement of basketball court (directly in front of hotel, 3 steps from hotel rooms -although, i couldnt hear people on the court, its not what you want to see when you open your window. Free breakfast is a circus - there was never enough room for people to sit down and very hard to get to what you were looking for. I tried several times (granted it's free), but maybe the time should be extended so that it's less of a cattle call.
