- Scott CDayton, United States“No hot water, and I was sold two rotten bottles of wine”ReviewedJanuary 25, 2016Trip type:BusinessBeautiful views of the bridge, Lexington ship, and beach, but the facilities are updated old building. The room was nice and comfortable, but cracks in the tiles, tub, and sink. You can tell it was an old building that was recently partially remodeled. There was no hot water the night I stayed. There is nowhere close by to buy beer or wine except the bar downstairs. I was sold two bottles of wine recommended by the somelier as his favorites. Got them to the room, first one was a 2004 bottle, rotten cork that fell apart as I tried to open it. Went back down to the bar, and rather than replace the bottle, he fished out what was left of the cork and strained the wine into a plastic ice tea pitcher. Back to my room...wine literally burned my tongue on first sip and gave me a "liar's bump". Dumped into sink. Second bottle was 2005 with teflon cork, opened it, smelled like peanut butter. Poured a glass and it was brown, and full of flakes of fungus or something. Called the bar and somelier brought me up a cheap bottle of malbec, but it was drinkable. So far, $74 for the one drinkable bottle of wine. Originally asked for a red, maybe a pinot, and was asked "what kind of pinot, a noir?" Only one they had was woodbridge which I buy all the time at my store for 13-16 dollars a bottle, but because it was a "big bottle" they wanted $80! I guess they assumed I was new to wine (43 years old) and thought they could pass junk off to me. Never going there again, and would not recommend to anyone else.StayedJanuary 2016Review collected in partnership with this hotelJanuary 27, 2016We appreciate your feedback regarding the Island's Bar & Grill.
