The property itself was in fine condition but my room had no water pressure in the bathroom sink and no hot water in the shower. Incredibly disappointing for $80 per night. There was also a rooster next door that started making noise very early in the morning.

I have stayed there several times on the first floor......great room in every way. This last time I was on the second floor in an older room....not as nice. Staff is wonderful. Will stay there again in a heart beat! Close to shopping, etc.

Was hard to tell. The staff was pleasant, but when I checked in no one told me about the continental breakfast area... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel 2 nights ago as we traveled the coast. Our room was on the 3rd floor, accessed with use of a slow moving elevator near the front desk. Although the street noise was apparent with the window to the room open, we heard no noises when we closed the window and turned on... More
