During my most recent stay, September 6-8, 2013, I stayed in a newly renovated suite by the pool with two bathrooms, a separate living room with a...

Doolan's is a reasonably-priced hotel with all the amenities any family could need. We return every year and it's especially nice now with the new room upgrades - the beds are incredibly comfortable and the bathrooms are clean. The pool area is v. pretty and the kiddie pool works well for the little ones. We loved being able to order...

This is my second stay at Doolans. I can't say enough about the service, food and rooms. I come from North Carolina to meet friends and will never stay anywhere else. Rooms are updated, clean and so well maintained. The restaurant was unbelievable with the highest quality and so reasonable. Can't wait to come back next July. Already booked!!!

Just had 4 great nights at Doolans. Rooms were newly renovated, complimentary breakfast excellent and satisfying. Filet Mignon dinner w/chocolate lava cake was the best. I thought I was in a 5 star restaurant. Can't wait to return next year.

Doolan's is a bargain in every respect. The attractive, clean rooms are $75 off season and only $95 between July and August. The price includes a continental breakfast! The on premise restaurant is elegant and affordable. The pan seared steak was cooked to perfection as was the sea bass ordered by my travel companion. I and another patron agreed it...

We were at Doolan's for the wedding of our nephew. One's first impression is not so good. The structure is clearly quite worn. The check in revealed a completely unorganized appearance of the reception desk, with papers and things generally in a disorganized way. However the check-in process was swift. To be fair, rooms are being renovated, but in a...
