They really need to upgrade their property

Not worth it
I was really disappointed with this hotel. I rented a delux king room and the bed took up the whole room. We had to turn sideways half the time to get around the bed to the other side of the room which gives you an idea of how little extra space there was. The mattress was uncomfortable and a couple of outlets didn't work. The closet was so small we missed it at first. The air conditioner really didn't work well so we kept the windows open hoping at least we would hear the ocean but we just heard the cars and people on the road in front of the hotel, between the hotel and the beach. Overall the property just seems kind of dingy and dirty. The railings, windows, outdoor furniture, and tables were pretty dirty. The paint in the corners of the room was chipping. The edges of the floor and the bathroom and parts of the room just weren't very clean. Its just not what you expect at a hotel that's so expensive. It felt like an out of date bed and breakfast that they slapped some new lamps, wall sconces, and couch cushions on as a cosmetic fix in order to charge more. The pool area felt dark and dated as well. There also is no traditional bar or restaurant at the hotel so between that and the rooms being so small it felt like there wasnt really a comfortable place to go just hang out on the property. And again given the price tag that seemed a little crazy. I spent nearly $1,000 for a 2 night stay there and it wasn't worth nearly that much.

great place, BEWARE all the fees really add up!
There were so many great things about my stay, very comfortable, clean but best of all they allowed me to have my dogs with me. BUT....... I wasn’t very happy about not being told about the valet fee. When I told the front desk guy he said “well I’m sure you were told by the valet when you arrived” I was not told & felt as though I was being accused of lying. So my wonderful stay ended on a very sour note. Also, my room was quite a hike from the valet, traveling by myself with 2 dogs & not once did any staff offer to help me to my room with my luggage

We have stayed here before. It's a quaint hotel, with a great location. My only complaint is the rates. It's a glorified motel, regardless of the amenities, the rooms are very small and the walls are thin. They charged over $500 a night?! Told me it was summer rates. That's absurd. For that kind of money, I can stay at a resort. I am not likely to ever stay there again.
