A former drab and rundown property on the easternmost edge of town has been transformed into a hip and sleek hotel directly across the street from the bay. Local art adds to the brightness of aqua, green, and orange pillows and chairs, and those happy colors appear throughout the hotel, from the outside doors to the coverlets on the bed. There's a lively vibe here, evident in the poolside bar, outdoor firepit, and also at the Whaler's Lounge, which is home to movie nights,
live music, cocktails, and food. It's on the shuttle stop to town and you also have access to free bicycles.
