If the hotel has parking you need to pay extra. If they do not have parking as in our case you have to meter park and pay every day. We paid almost $1000 for 2 nights at this hotel and to have to pay extra for parking and be inconvenienced by having to hunt for parking blocks away from hotel is not ok. Also, the rooms do not have a coffee maker, luggage holder or a fridge. For the amount you pay per night you should have the bare necessities. The check in staff was unfriendly and not helpful at all. They provide you with zero information at check in and just seem generally annoyed that you’re there. Smile once in awhile and be nice i promise it won’t hurt. The pool area staff and pool area were awesome! Very friendly and helpful. That was the best part of our trip. They were absolutely amazing! Keep up the great work!!

The deluxe room had a good amount of space for 4 adults and one toddler. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The hotel was pretty and a great location. Super fun even off season.

Dog friendly and on the ocean. Bed was comfortable. The common areas were not kept up, empty bottles on the deck weren’t moved for two days, a half full glass of liquor was outside the entrance on the ground for three. A broken piece of cement was used as a doorstop on the observation deck. Lobby and elevators had a sewer odor. When I checked in the receptionist literally said, “payment and ID.” Not even a hello. The valet attendants should hold open the front door for guests if they are standing there, and not be in the public view texting every day. $600 in taxes and fees for a four night stay excessive. It is as if they know they have the location to be booked full most summer nights and don’t even try to lure guests back.
