Good location and roomy unit.
The apartment could be excellent with just a little attention. The hide-a-bed is not fit to sleep in. The second night we ended up switching the matresses. That made the hide-a-bed much more comfortable, the bedroom was sleepable. The decor is pretty, but I would suggest not setting the table up with dishes, it's not convenient. Also there was a light bulb missing in the bathroom - 4 lights, two regular bulbs, one a candle bulb, and one empty. It's a dark bathroom. Seems that would have been something obvious to fix before the next guest arrived. We had to call Dave for a bulb -- he did come that day. The chairs in the living room are cute, but not that comfortable. There is plenty of dishes in the kitchen, but could use a new stove. We didn't use it, but it didn't look clean. There were plenty of towels. There was not a strong WIFI signal, but it worked. Previously vacationers said that it smelled bad. There was no bad smell in the unit. It is an older building, so hallways a little bit, but not enough to bother us. Marine is a great little town, so if you want the conveniences and quiet atmosphere of a small town, this would be a great place. I suggest if they don't change out the hide-a-bed, that you stick to two people.
Enjoyed our weekend in Marine! So much to do in this sweet little town. Had pizza and wine at the chocolate shop, breakfast at The Landing and saw a great outdoor concert and burgers at The Brookside. Once we parked at the schoolhouse, we were able to walk everywhere we needed to go. The apartment had everything we needed, was very clean and comfortable. Loved sitting out on the patio each evening. We would gladly stay here again!!
Well kept. Quiet. Comfortable.
Perfect for a long weekend. Loved the area. The apartment had everything we needed. My only critiques would be the mattress on the pullout wasn't in the best condition. And no wifi. But other than that it was a great stay for the money.
Marine is a great little town. Always fun to visit.
Quaint and comfy
Nice clean and comfortable place right in downtown Marine
Not so great for sleeping
Beds were not comfortable at all. Strong musty smell in bedroom. We cut our stay one day shorter and stayed somewhere else. But it was cute
Located on southern edge of William O'Brien State Park, for outdoor activities, or go antiquing 10 miles to the south in Stillwater.
