So…our one night stay turned out to be perhaps more trouble than WE were worth. To start the evening off right, one of our party plugged and overflowed the toilet. Thank goodness this happened at 9:00PM vs. some early morning hour. Help came immediately upon request and the clog and cleanup were completed in a quick and very friendly manner. Thank you and apologies for the mess. Problem number two raised its head after we had traveled about three hours from LIC&H the following morning, when the same unnamed someone as above announced that he had left his laptop tucked away under his bed. Long story short, with a few very friendly and helpful phone conversations and with LIC&H staff going ABOVE & BEYOND to find and then take our laptop to the UPS Store to ship it, we now have it again. Again, thank you and we are very sorry for the hassle. I wish I could recall/knew the names of those who made this happen. We appreciate you all. As far as a review of accommodations… Nicely updated rooms. Clean, quiet. Nice pool and hot tub. Cheerful, helpful staff. While visiting, we heard that, pre-C, breakfast had been offered in the lounge - that would be a nice amenity to bring back. Good location within reasonable walking distance of Long Sands Beach and Nubble Lighthouse. A slightly farther walk to Short Sands Beach/downtown. A quick drive to all three. Highly recommend!
