Is there anyone who shouldn’t vacation at #309 Historic Coast Guard Station?

We have to be honest. It isn’t usually a great value for either a single person or for people staying a single night, as you get hit with a cleaning fee. We do have, however, some single people who visit during the off-season when we can make special arrangements.
