We spent a little more and took the Oceanside room. Boy was it worth it. We drank a glass of wine and watched the sunset. This entire hotel is a cut above a regular Best Western.

I have had good food here and I think you have to be careful what you order. The service has always been excellent. It is handy if you are staying here and the view is good as well.

Very busy, because they really are the only nice place in town. Good variety of menu items and the staff was very pleasant. Beware - they do close 9 pm

Pretty good for a Best Western attached restaurant. In fact the food was quite good. We had snapper and sanddabs. The only real issue was that the place mats were stained and some of the utensils were crusted with old food. Not just one, but...More
