The room was incredibly small and the floor was very dirty. Could barely walk past each other between the bed and TV. Kids feet were black after walking around for 5 minutes. Hair in my "clean" coffee cup and on the floor in the bathroom. Night stand was also broken and slanted.

We were told to park in a handicap parking space because there weren't any parking spaces available. Seems like there should be enough space for at least one car per room in the lot. Room was not very clean. Hair on the sink, on the bathroom floor, and hanging off the blow dryer. Pillowcases had stains on a few of them. The location was great (short walk to the beach or downtown). Staff was friendly.

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.
