  • My Dad was stationed there at the lighthouse years ago (USCG) and now I go back there every chance I get (living out of state now). The last time my son and I sat there by the lighthouse in a thunder ...  more »

  • This hotel ruined my vacation. We rented two apartments, C & D for a family of six. The facilities are exceptionally old, the door didn't shut correctly or lock, window locks were broken/non-functioning, the cleaning staff did not clean or tidy our room, the ceilings were stained and run with plumbing pipes, the AC unit was ancient, the overall appearance of the hotel is poorly maintained 1970's decor, very small and cramped, old orange plaid pull out couch was uncomfortable and close to breaking, bathroom amazingly small with stained flooring, no counter space, no shelves, no hook on door for vanity bag, view is of an old asphalt parking lot, dirty old carpeting, small uncomfortable wicker dining room table/chairs, internet access only available in the lobby. When we parked outside our room to pack our suitcases into our car, we were told by management not to park there. The septic tank was under us and our car might fall in. There was no marking to not park there. I can't think of a positive thing about it except it kept us out of the elements. And we paid over fifteen hundred dollars for two apartments for two nights. You can walk to some nice places but I would advise to stay somewhere else and drive to those nice places.
  • Two words... Run down. Watch hill court is in such a nice location. Its a shame it isnt kept up. The unit we stayed in smelled musty, there was mold in the shower, and there was a towel wedged in the bedroom window acting as a window seal. Overall our stay was ok. The beach was nice. Hopefully they upgrade the place soon.
