  • 8.0.Very Good

    Great location

    Excellent service. Hotel communicated well to meet my needs. Staff is very nice and helpful with prompt service . Great location for walking distance to great food places and the ocean. Free street parking from 6 pm to 8 am. During the day time is 1-2 hours free street parking , which is monitored frequently by the parking officer. I saw several cars being ticketed for over the time limit parking. We used the hotel’s parking garage, which costed $28/ night - need to reserve early, since there are not many spaces available. The room itself is a standard room with acceptable cleanliness . Small fridge and microwave are in the room . The price is rather pricey, but mayb because of the location.

    Amazing staff

    My stay was awesome once I found parking. That is the only downfall from the stay. The hotel is amazing and the restaurant is amazing inside the hotel. Walking distance to everything and the staff is amazing. Truly impressed with my stay.

    Nice place... Good location... well maintained

    Very pleasant place... seems newly remodeled. Great staff and easy checkin despite our late arrival. Within a few blocks to beach, we even had a distant ocean view.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Disappointing

    The rating of this hotel is very high on hotels.com and that’s why we chose it. We wanted to choose a safe and clean hotel during this special time. But overall it was quite disappointing. The room given to us has windows facing their restaurant (this no windows). Their liquid wash, body wash and conditioner bottles were all empty too when we checked in. It was like a room not serviced, and the overall environment was suspiciously dirty. By that I mean it felt dirty but we did not find dirty clothes or trash other than the displaced empty body wash and liquid wash bottles. the only good thing is that there have a EV charger we could use while parking there. I would not recommend it for families. I felt we should have gotten much better rooms with the price we paid for this hotel.

  • 6.0.Good

    Neutral

    Location is superb as other reviews state. Hotel seems tired. No phone in the room so you have to look up phone number on your cell to ask a question. Was on the 3rd floor and heard people above that sounded like they were stomping around for 2 plus hours at night - quiet after 11 p.m. No one ever asked if we needed other towels. We took out our own trash and had to ask for everything. Lots of money to have no services. That's why I said it was OK but don't have any expectations.

    Great location great staff

    Very nice remodeled older building. Great staff. The only thing I would change is the bathroom door. Not much privacy.
