The staff was great! Easily upgraded our room and also threw in free parking. The pool leaves a bit to be desired. Pool water was cloudy and the outdoor furniture a bit stained. I’d definitely stay there again, great location!

Front desk was extremely welcoming especially Anna. Hotel was in the perfect area for first time visitors like us. We walked everywhere we wanted to go without moving our car. Our son enjoyed the pool that was a plus for us. Pool area was a little dirty but not a reason not to visit again.

I was on the third floor and my view was ocean view and it was breath taking. I would stay there again if I ever would get the chance again; but I would like to try an ocean front.

Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean and spacious, and there was a nice water filter in the hallway to refill bottles rather than buying, which we appreciated. I give it a 4 only because it is not the most ideal location...yes, you can see the ocean from "ocean view" rooms, but there are buildings/obstructions and a back alley to look past. The walk to water's edge was doable and pleasant, 5-10 mins.

The friendly staff and great location made my stay here wonderful. The room was clean, comfortable, and once the kids left the pool area, quiet. Parking was easy either on the street (free) or in their lot ($15). I loved being able to walk to the beach, restaurants and shops.
