Great location and staff! Room was clean and stocked. Walking distance to a lot of good restaurants. Just a few steps to the beach. Would stay again.

I enjoyed the convenience of everything but there was no free breakfast or wifi as advertised. The listing should be updated to inform people there is no breakfast because of COVID. The staff informed me at checkout that the wifi had been shoddy for a while so basically some people can get it and some cant.

Sheets felt like sandpaper, drains are missing covers & dirty. Breakfast was included on the reservation but they do not offer it because “COVID.” Good for them saving money with false advertising. Way too expansive for a crappy place.

Location is great. Convenient to the beach, the pier and restaurants. Beds were firm but matresses sagged in the middle and springs were noisy. They should have been replaced some time ago. Light over the sink was too dim and not much use unless i was directly under it which put me too close to the mirror. Employees were all friendly and helpful. Overall we enjoyed our visit in spite of the few negatives and would go back again.

The only problem I encountered was they had accidentally put me in a smoking room, when I reserved a non smoking room. But the staff quickly changed rooms without hesitation. It had nice tile floors, the fridge and microwave worked great Looked like it had been recently painted. They had a nice breakfast pastries, cereals, fruit, juice coffee and milk. Its literally just 2-3 minutes from the beach walking....I have stayed at most of the hotels on the beach and this by far has been the best one.
