Nice space, friendly staff. Rooms/ bathrooms: doors, need a paint job, otherwise ok. Love the floors, ( no carpets)👍 Bathroom floor could use a steam clean.

It is close to downtown and the beach, great location. Parking was horrible, the room was dirty, there was a smell in the room, no continental breakfast like was mentioned when booked and the key card kept demagnetizing
