3/5 Okay

The location was perfect and there are a ton of things to do in Downtown York. However, the entire stay, there was no hot water for the shower. There were a few of us, and we had to take cold showers every day, which was particularly brutal on a day where it was already cold. Also, the entire time, the television didn’t work. Of course we were there for the beach and location, but on small breaks and before bed, it’s always nice to catch a movie or something to watch. We did mention this, but it wasn’t fixed (or explained to why it wasn’t working). The staff that they have working the hotel are kind and want to do well; they made up the rooms nicely. The room was clean and had towels, but the cold showers and broken television were upsetting, particularly for how much it costs to stay here.
