Stay here often, was surprised to get such good rate for ocean view. $150. My favorite place on earth. My husband can't walk far so he can stay in room or sit on the lounge chairs while I walk the beach then we some the evening in lounge with glass of wine and appetizers. Yes Heaven!

Like all other reviews, the location is great. However, everything else has a less than stellar review. The staff was inept in many ways. One of the biggest issues was our bill. I was with a group and the gentleman at the front desk refused to edit my bill and said..."he could do nothing" and did not check with other... More

I felt sorry for the old couple, but happy... More

This property has an excellent location right on the beach. We travel with our dog, so it was very convenient and fun to be located near the ocean. The property itself is very clean and the staff is friendly. Requests for room location are always honored when we stay here. Complimentary coffee, tea and hot chocolate welcome in the morning...

We got this hotel from Priceline - great deal (price anyway) but not a 3 star hotel. The room smelled like bleach (which usually means they are trying to cover something). I had to purchase a candle in the hotel lobby to cover up the smell that's how over powering it was. The beds were really soft and dipped in... More

We enjoyed a quick overnight family stay at the hotel. The front desk staff was friendly and professional. They upgraded us to an oceanfront room. It was lovely to hear the ocean waves all night. We ate dinner at the ocean cafe on the fourth floor. They did a wonderful remodel of the restaurant. Cool, beach chic. Our waiter was... More

My new wife and I checked in on our wedding night, paid an extra $60 for "Ocean room upgrade' plus $18 for parking.
