    Good 6.0
    Great Area - room wasn't too exciting
    The room layout and features were outstanding and the people we interacted with were friendly and helpful. The furniture was really filthy. I was told by one of the staff that a top to bottom overhaul/remodel is in the works and should start in a couple of weeks.

    Fair 4.0
    Not the best
    We arrived early because we had a wedding at 5 PM. Our room was not ready but we were changed to another room. So we appreciated that. But the couch was gross it should be pulled right out of room 106. There were crumbs under the cushion of the chair. I went to turn on the light under the sink and that was grimy. . I did not take my shoes off until I was in bed, the rug was stained. We were not about to go through another room change because we were under a deadline. We won’t be staying here again.

    Loved the set up and little kitchen area!

    Good deal in a beach city
    The suite (a large room with three distinct areas) had an impressive full kitchen (which we didn't use for just overnight), plus sitting area, plus king-size bed. We were offered late checkout (7 pm) for $19, an extra night for $49, both good deals during beach season (maybe available only on Sundays). We took the late checkout, which facilitated an afternoon at the beach, with a place to rest and clean up before 2.5 hour drive home.

    Minimal Gluten free options
    Part of our party is gluten intolerant. The only gluten free breakfast item was hard boiled eggs. This was a bummer.
