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.

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
