Fodor's Review

A $15 million renovation turned this former budget motel into a contemporary hotel-motel with two additional buildings, a stylish restaurant and lounge, and a fitness center. All rooms are outfitted with pillow-top beds and interesting wall art; suites offer wet bars and some have marble bathrooms with whirlpool tubs. The on-site restaurant, the Glass Door, has fourth-floor harbor views and offers a great weekend brunch. Yoga classes take place on the roof weekly; ask

at the front desk for the schedule.
