    Our rooms were built in 1940, first opened in january 1941. At that time, rooms were constructed smaller than what are built today. As many guests say, most people don't mind since they are in SB to be outside exploring.

    Reviewed 14 July 2014

    Location was perfect. Short walk to beach and wharf. You can take shuttle to State St shopping, or just a short drive. Room was a little cramped but tidy, soft bed. Fridge and microwave for late night snacking.

    I think you should probably bring your own child seat. The bicycles are pretty basic.
