Ocean Front Hotel

Pros: It was quiet even with college kids staying. All Staff personnel were very pleasant.
Cons: Would update rooms and enlarge the bathrooms. Bathroom was very small, not all people would fit in there very easy.
Location: There were several nice resturants, Dead Freddies, Ropewalk, BJ, Feglurs Island, Bad Monkey, etc. Plenty of shopping, putt- putt golf.
Although the hotel was at the ocean, April isn't the time to go into the ocean. Only had an outdoor pool, night club but was not open till May. Indoor breakfast restaurant was very nice. Buffet and menu orders available. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Used a beach wheelchair due to disability and it was on a first come first serve basis. Nice chair to ride in and was easy for my Husband to push. Nice way to make it to the beach even if we didn't get into the water. Hotel is close to restaurants and shops. Hotel is a little dated but was overall very clean. Office personnel were also very helpful and willing to help in any way. Will stay again.
