When I was comparing properties I missed that there was a 32$ a day parking cost at the hotel. It was an unwelcome surprise and I would preferred to have known up front.

Hi Susan, sorry the info was missed. We dont like to have those kind of surprises pop up. I hope the views and the area made up for it and you were still able to have a great time by the beach.

Property is under construction. My room smelled like paint the entire stay. Pictures online are very misleading. This is also an outdoor hotel.

Really enjoyed this hotel and its amazing location. Staff were immensely helpful when Southwest Airlines had a flight delay which killed an earlier weekend getaway. We are huge fans of this hotel and would definitely stay here again.

The staff were all friendly and helpful. We had secure parking under one of the buildings. We had some VERY loud-talking neighbors the first night, so adding better soundproofing would be good. Our ocean view balcony was quite fine. We'll probably try to come again. It's a nice place.
