The only thing is the beach view! Other then that the hotel shouldn't be name hotel but motel! For the amount we paid is really really overpriced, no wifi, no parking, we could hear when the guest next to us use the restrooms because the toilet make a lot of noise! We have to pull up the shower drain because the water got stuck, just not a good please for what they charge! I think they could do some repairs! I won't recommend this motel!!

I love the location of this hotel!. It is right on the Seawall with great views of the water. This is an older hotel so just be aware some of the rooms have some AC issues and are a little dated.
