    My family stayed here for a baseball tournament in a ocean view room. Our whole team was also staying and the general consensus was that it was a decent place that was clean and centrally located. Our suite was clean and had more than enough room for four people. The room had a deck and living room with a full... More

    About the only good thing I can say about this property is that the room was in fact ocean front as booked. Check in is not until 4:00 pm (something not listed in the reservation). Check out was 11:00 am. Property is old. Our third floor room in the older (short) building had a broken door lock on balcony sliding... More

    Horrible front desk customer service!! They interrupt you while you are speaking. On the first day at check in we waited for 30 minutes for a bellman. When I went back to check status the person at the front desk used a walkie talkie to call him and he loudly replied "I'll get there when I get there!" The curtains... More

    There are two buildings to this hotel. The taller building I believe is newer - this review is for the older smaller building. I wish we had spent the extra money to stay at a nicer place. The age of this building isn't the issue entirely. Location - is great! Great family beach area. Quick access to Broadway at the... More

    We stayed in the 2 bedroom condo. What a great hotel! The room was nice and plenty of room for our 9 to stay comfortably (and room for a few more). The beach view from the balconies is awesome. Really nothing bad I can say about our stay. We will stay here again if we go back. And if you... More

    We really enjoyed our stay. We had a two bedroom suite which was perfect for two families. It was very roomy and had wonderful views.

    The room was clean and housekeeping did their job well. Unfortunately the room we had was below the wash room and when housekeeping was doing laundry. It sounded like someone was beating a bass drum. Our balcony had a perfect view of hotel check in and the kiddie pool. Other than that I have no other complaints. I would stay... More
