  • Rented the Tropicana Room for a private event. What a great facility! Perfectly sized for a small gathering or business meeting and such a unique atmosphere. The staff was kind, helpful and considerate. The kitchen facilities were clean, convenient and available. I highly recommend this venue!
  • Jamestown itself is a little gem. This museum is everything you ever wanted to know about I LOVE LUCY - and more. Bios of both Lucy and Desi, including family history. All about the show, and Lucy's other shows. Lots of family pics and mementos from a long career. We WERE unpleasantly surprised a couple of months later to hear from our rental car company that we had gotten a parking ticket, which we never saw, and paid 2 months penalties on top of the original charge because between the town and the rental car company (Enterprise) they took that long to get it to us.
