Great location!

Clean, comfortable, and a good location. I was not impressed by the onsite dining. I did not use the pool, though it looked clean and inviting. The service desk could have been more professional and friendly. Would stay for it's comfort and location.

Hard to beat for the price, but didn't get good sleep

The pluses are the location, value, and nice staff. However the negatives were the room was loud (can hear the hallway too clearly which got noisy at like 7am), we could also hear our neighbors pretty clearly, and if you have the door open to hear the ocean, you will hear some drunk people on a balcony near you talking loudly..I had to shut the door because of them talking for hours starting at 2am. Also the mattress makes spring noises everytime you move, and we are not heavy people (130 lbs), also the mattresses were uncomfortable.

Great Oceanfront Stay

The location of this hotel is perfect, it looks like basically every room has an ocean view. The staff was helpful and friendly. It's a very basic hotel, but clean and perfect for a stay on the beach.

2 nights with family

The staff were wonderful. The staff allowed us to check in very early and choose our room floor. The pool was a gross cloudy. The all you could eat buffet was bland and sparse, price just insanely high. As well as down wind from one of two outdoor smoking areas. Our room had a wonderful view, but it still had a out of date vibe. The bath tub was slimy and the fan was very loud. Could of used a microwave. The room smelled a bit like burning wires near the tv.

Good weekend trip

Convenient to the beach and plenty of choices in restaurants surrounding the hotel. The only thing missing was the comfort in the hotel room. Could have been a little cleanier, but the staff is pleasant and helpful. I would definitely stay again for a weekend trip.

Sufficent for the price

This is my second time staying here. It's about as good as you will get for $199 in that location. The staff seemed kinda rude on more than one occasion and it's a bit dated. It's not a bad hotel but next time I would spend a bit more to have a nicer room.
