    Exceeded any expectations. Very clean, very warm, everything we could have wished for. Wayne and Kathy very willing and cheerful. Fabulous location right on the esplanade. Would recommend this to anyone. Very reliable wifi. Garage parking.

    This is the best place. Of course the view and location are right on the water, so it's relaxing, but the place is clean and well cared for. The managers are top-notch and always willing to help or be of service.
