Beautiful hotel. Great room and close to beach.

Pros: Location, staff and cleanliness
When I realized this was a newer hotel I was a bit leery. This place did not disappoint. The whole hotel still smells new. The room was exceptionally clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

New, clean, comfortable, good value

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, comfortable
Cons: maid service was hit or miss
Found this hotel to be a good value for the money. It was new, clean, had convenient below ground parking, and had decent sized room. We had 3 adults and two teens in 2 queens and a sofabed, which worked out perfectly. Really nice to have free wi-fi, breakfast and 2 TVs. Several places to eat and shop nearby. Seemed safe, and was comfortable. Desk staff was friendly and helpful, maids' schedule varied, and had to track one down sometimes.
