amazing stay

3.6 on August 14, 2014

The room was clean and a great size. The jacuzzi tub was heaven it fit me and my husband. There was even a front pronch not big, but still our own sitting area. Very romantic defiantly great for couples looking to get away not for kids. I didnt go to the resturant because I was in the mood for seafood. The only complaints are that there were no hangers and the sitting couch wasnt comfy. I would have rather had a table and two chairs or a newer couch to sit on. Other than that perfection.

Had a good time

The cottage at first looked a bit small, but once inside it was more than ample in size. There was some wear and tear on furnishings and decor, but was very clean. Quiet area, courteous staff. Pool house was very, very nice with hot tub area also. All in all we had a very nice stay. Restaurant was closed on Mondays, so could not rate it.

Our Stay

3.2 on May 28, 2014

Place was quaint Our cottage was dated and not as clean as I would have liked considering the price but the atmosphere and personnel were nice friendly and pleasant I would recommend it but perhaps to stay in the newer attached portions rather than the cottages The small craft beer bar in the same complex was great We did not dine there but I rate the dining a 5 because the menu for the craft beer bar looked really good

great stay

The above dining score isn't accurate because we didn't dine in your restaurant

Wonderful romantic getaway

4.6 on April 23, 2014

My fiancé and I stayed at the Wren's Nest in the Loft suite for one night. It was a beautiful room, very comfortable and cozy. The suite was set back from the rest of the hotel and very private. The room was very clean and well maintaned, we did not eat at the hotel restaurant and bar but it looked fabulous. If you are looking for a beautiful atmosphere, friendly service and wonderful rooms the Wren's Nest is the place to go. My fiancé and I look forward to going again and staying in one of their other suites.

great, unique

good but one issue

2.8 on April 02, 2014

sheets were clean but had some faded stains on them that were unacceptable

Fantastic weekend getaway!

4.0 on March 26, 2014

My hubby and I wanted a little weekend getaway and I thought the Tropical Suite the Wren's Nest would be perfect for us. It was! I had read some negative reviews before our stay and I have no idea what it would take to please the people who wrote them - this place was fabulous! First, at check in, the manager was extremely nice and helpful, very friendly. When we actually saw our room I was pleasantly surprised. I think the hotel needs better photos on its website, because the ones they have on it now just didn't do it justice. It was very clean, spacious, and had a tropical feel, as promised. The tub was great, the shower unique, and the loft cozy. We loved the fireplace!!! There were thoughtful little touches too, like wine glasses and chocolates, and a CD especially created for our room in the CD player! In a regular hotel room you get maybe one painting, over the bed, that is generic and impersonal - at the Tropical Suite at the Wren's Nest, you get thoughtful decor that is well placed and gives it more of a beach house feel. In short: clean, unique, welcoming, romantic, thoughtful, comfortable and relaxing are only some of the words I'd use to describe our suite at the Wren's Nest. Excellent, we will be back!

Nice get away

We rented the jacuzzi suite for a getaway night. The room was clean and cozy; however the shower head was broken so showering was difficult. The room was expensive and small.
