paid for ocean, got trash paid for amenities, couldn’t use them. Room was unimpressive. Small, Dirty, carpet tiles were coming up, screen door had rips in it by the handle and was difficult to open. Mirror on wall filthy. Patio furniture rusty. was rusted. Called frontndesk and said this isn’t ocean view room and they said I paid for a partial ocean view. I said how much is this room and they said 309 plus taxes. I said my receipt shows 399 plus taxes $461.58. They said there wasn’t anything they could do. I said the only view we have is trash and only way to see ocean is to lean over the railing. They offered to move us to a first floor ocean view, very nice all the way through it. First floor ocean views are of parking lot with loud cars in and out the entire time. This room had same issues as third....unimpressed. Oh, something else I forgot to mention. We were looking forward to spending a nice evening at the rooftop bar and lounge. Ha... it was closed due to a wedding party as were the hot tub and pool. Front desk said we could use their hot tub and pool at a sister property if we wanted to drive. Should have warned guest at booking of these closures. For the money, plenty of other options with better rooms and views.

Proximity to pier & rooftop lounge area. Seems like that's enough.

The staff was extremely welcoming and accommodating, and the room and hotel were beautifully maintained. I also liked having a restaurant on site. I will definitely be returning.

You can hear EVERYTHING. People walking, talking etc. the rooms have no insulation. The restaurant wasn’t open when it was supposed to be. Very cute hotel, but I most likely won’t be returning

The check-in process was very quick and the parking valet was very friendly and helpful and when we left, getting the car was also quick. Our ocean view room was very nice. We were not at the hotel long enough to avail ourselves of the amenities, however, it all looked very nice. The location is great because you can walk to the beach and the ships and restaurants. I would recommend this hotel.
