You need a car there to get around. I would go nuts if I was trapped at that resort- especially off-season. Unless you are content to just use the indoor pool and gym every day and eat at he sub par restaurant with poor service.

The Chowder Pot is good. There is also an Italian restaurant down the road- forget the name of it.

Haven't been to Water's Edge in many years. My parents used to own there. The Marlbourough Country Barn in Old Saybrook was always a place I went to for country pieces.

You can go to the casinos, Mystic seaport and aquarium, Block Island. Also- the Gillette Castle. Take a ride down the Connecticut River. Essex is really a nice place to visit where you can take the boat from.

Best to get a condo facing the LI Sound- top floor-unless you have issues with stairs.. One of the buildings is closer to the water and the outside pool. The one next to the restaurant is noisy with dishes clanking and garbage nearby- unless they did something about it now.

Lots of weddings held here which can make parking difficult in summer, but might be ok this time of year.

Rte 1 is usually nothing but traffic, but might be a bit better now during this season.

The units are ok for a couple. The kitchens are efficiency. Full fridge- microwave and 2 burners. Limited supplies. No oven. My parents had a loft unit- so there were 2 twin beds upstairs and also the sofa was a pull-out.
