We had a very nice stay at the Edgewater. We would especially like to thank the man at the front desk, Tyler. He was extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about the area and the hotel amenities. We've been recommending the hotel to our friends, and we're excited to come back.

Liked: Really lovely hotel; excellent staff; great location.

Liked: The location
Disliked: It was outdated, my carpet had stains , anyone out on the terrace of the main hotel could look straight into my room, there was no way to have the curtains drawn and have privacy to dress or shower. The maid service never replenished the shower shampoo,body wash or conditioner and we stayed 4 days. There were no amenities in the bathroom ( qtips, cotton balls , sewing kit , nail file etc. ) The coffee machine didn?t have cups after the first day. I called in advance to ask for a rollaway bed for my daughter. They said they only had 3 and it was first come first serve. My daughter had to sleep in her friends dorm because there was no where for her to lay. I paid $599.00 a night and there was not one extra luxury. Terrible experience. We will never book here again. The view is great but the place is the pits.

Nice facility so so service.

Liked: The view was great. Breakfast food was good and the dinning room had a lovely view
Disliked: The Boatyard was a bad experience. We had terrible service. Waited more than 20 minutes for appetizers one person's meal showed up after everyone else had eaten. Waitress was nice but clearly inexperienced and poorly trained. Management did comp the appetizers. Appreciate that. the noise level made conversation nearly impossible. There was a birthday party for a child complete with noise makers. I would never go here again and would NOT recommend this restaurant to friends. check-out was ok. I asked for a zero balance bill and was given one but I notices that the breakfast tab wasn't on it. Staff said that happens all the time and I would get a revised bill later. Really? Sort of defeats the purpose of getting a zero balance bill. FYI we had breakfast about an hour or so before checking out.
