Great Location!
Wonderful hotel, clean and staff was very nice. Room was comfortable except at night I heard alot of creaking kind of like when someone is walking on old wood floors, not sure where it was coming from but was pretty consistent all night long. Pool area was clean and refreshing. I would definitely stay here again, across street from beach and great coffee house at the end of the street, great casual restaurant right next door.

The service was great at registration, check out and valet. At 650 per night I would expect better beds, I we bathroom, and turn down service every night.

Beautiful and convenient location
We went for our anniversary and the location of the place is really nice as it is right next to the beach and there's also a park right outside our room so our dog can go there. Chad's is also right next door which made it convenient to have breakfast there. The parking was not a problem because its valet. The hotel lends out really nice beach chairs for free and its the type of beach chairs that have an umbrella and cup holder on the side, it also has 4 seating position which was really comfortable. The room is a bit too small for the price I paid. The only problem I had during my stay is when I needed a blanket replacement at night, the receptionist told me that she was the only employee available and could not give me a blanket even though I offered to pick it up. I still got the blanket at the end after more than an hour.

Overpriced & noisy- not a good value
Room was very noisy, drapes didn’t close fully & in general we felt it was very overpriced for what it offered. We would not stay there again or recommend it to others.

Very outdated interiors at Hotel
We arrived and were hit with a mandatory Vallet parking fee of $30 a day. When we entered our room we noticed the laminate floor was warped, the bed was terrible, and the bathroom was outdated. We were told this was a deluxe room. It was anything but deluxe. Looks like they updated the outside but failed to put any upgrades in the rooms. Not worth the $$$$ they are asking to stay there…
