Overall hotel is nice but I'd probably book somewhere else if I return. Pros and cons are as follows:
Pros - very nice decor, incredibly comfortable mattress, free food and beverages available throughout the day, nice rooftop lounge area, Keurig coffee pods.
Cons - rooms are small (especially bathrooms), rarely ever able to get hot water, non-ocean view rooms overlook a dirt path/alley - not much privacy, hotel near top of a hill so quite a walk to get to if not driving, walls are paper thin.
I was really surprised to hear my neighbors entire phone conversation. The hotel isn't bad it's just not great.
