This film is one of those deals that comes along once in a lifetime. Granted,  I'd read the onslaught of negative, mixed, and seemingly great reviews that have been put out in the last couple of weeks, and kept my expectations to a dull roar. In the ...

Since getting out to this area I'd been unable to find decent Sushi on the Vancouver side of the fence and thankfully, Eastland Sushi got the job done... I appreciated the fact the 2 rolls I ordered weren't rushed out and they took the time to make them fresh, and presentation wise, A+++. Rice was perfect, and ingredients were tender inside each roll... If you want good sushi in the Couve, stick to this place! Nuff said.

Unfortunately I am unable to write a favorable review for this hotel-- The crying shame is the rooms were very nice, and it's essentially a brand spanking new hotel in Pendleton, OR. I was passing through en route to move to OR/WA area for a new job and at about 10:45pm the night I was staying I was abruptly woken up by the sounds of thumps above my room (coming from the room above me), and after about 10 minutes of this disruption I called the front desk to have them look into it, and resolve it. Sadly, nothing changed after 20-25 minutes longer, and the noise actually got worse after I filed my first complaint with the front desk. So, another phone call to the front desk to explain that this was just unacceptable noise for a hotel after 10pm, and I was simply told they'd contact the people above me yet again. The noise did finally subside about 10 minutes later, but the damage was done and I was unable to get back to sleep until about 130am (and have a 3 hour drive I had to be up for by 545am to finish my move across the country) I ended up dealing with the hotel manager, Ronni, who was at least nice enough to take a little off my final bill, but at the end of the day when you lose the bulk of a nights sleep because the hotel doesn't want to enforce noise issues after dark, I think the room should be comped at that juncture. She (Ronni) spoke with her GM about the possibility of that but she was given the proverbial stiff arm. In the end, I decided it was important to warn others who will potentially be staying here about the noise issues I encountered. After all, isn't the point of choosing the right hotel making sure you'll be staying in a fairly quiet pad for the night? Not all hotels are perfect in this regard, but the kind of noise I dealt with shouldn't have been allowed to carry on for 40 minutes straight. Nuff said.

One of the best experiences I've had staying at any hotel, and it surpassed my expectations by a country mile-- I reserved an Oceanfront Studio room, with the full kitchenette, and was thrilled to see they even provided all the utensils you may have forgot to bring... Secondly, the layout of the room was cool, w a fold down wall bed (super easy and light), a great flat screen TV hung over the fireplace, and a blu-ray/dvd player hooked up as well. More importantly, the view was better than advertised.... and even though it was quite windy and rainy, my room's balcony seemed to be tucked in just enough that no rain collected on the balcony itself. Also, if you want to head down to the beach, the resort has a very easy and convenient staircase to get you down for full beach access... Lastly, the parking, and pet areas were well placed as well.... I will be back, but I will caution people to make sure if you want the full oceanfront view to not reserve a room with "partial" or "Northwest" in the title.... Trust me, you want the Oceanfront, it's well worth the extra money... Nuff said

I'd been looking for a good place around the Southern Pines/Pinehurst area for a wide selection of great craft beers from around the world, as well as a large selection of wines, and boy this place turned out to be the holy grail of that. I was absolutely blown away by how many hundreds of different beers they have in stock, ranging from every country in the world! I didn't even get a look at the wine selection but from a birds eye view it was a ginormous selection as well. Friendly and knowledgeable staff as well, they answered all of my questions. Make no mistake, this is the definitive place in this region to pick up virtually ANY type of beer or wine you'd ever want, and it's probably the best wine/beer shop I've ever been in around the country, and I've been just about everywhere. I hope they stay open for years and years to come! Cheers!
