Loved it

We really enjoyed our weekend stay here. The location was perfect for us, across the street from the beach, shopping, restaurants and entertainment all in walking distance. The pool was great. Our room was perfectly clean and the bed was very comfy with nice bedding and plenty of pillows. Staff was super friendly. Can't wait to come back.

This hotel was near my event, so it was easy to walk to and from. While it was clean, it was also dated. The room had a musty smell, but it wasn't over powering.
