Good and bad
Great staff and location. Clean facility
Parking was rough. The AC needed repairs and was loud so we did not sleep during the night. We also had an issue with the lights not working so we had to utilize each lamp since the main switch did not work for the room. He AC was a huge bother. Very loud.
Excellent location to restaurants and close to the ferry
All the great services: staff, food, laundry, cleaning etc. Everyone was terrific.
