According to reviews on tripadvisor, Beihai is supposedly the best choice out of the current hotel selections. When we visited, there was another hotel being built, so hopefully future visitors can receive better than what we experienced.
Our bathroom flooded into the room after one 15 minute shower because the drain was clogged. When we told front desk, they didn't think anything of it and said that housekeeping was not on duty. We were persistent enough to convince the front desk to obtain a mop from the restaurant downstairs, which helped clear out the water in the bathroom. There was mold built up inside the room's picture frames and there are probably fleas on the floor so prepare sandals! While the weather was cold enough to warrant the need of heating, the hotel said it was past season to turn on heating. So the whole hotel did not have heating. There are large overcoats available in closets for guests to use.
Beihai is, however, a great location to see the sunrise in the morning. Its about a 10-15 minute walk to look out points, which lie across one hiking path near the hotel.
There is a basketball court that sits right in front of Beihai hotel, where we saw people with tents pitched up. Not sure if there is a service fee for camping on the courts, but this could be a great affordable alternative to staying at Beihai. Do check on seasons for mosquitoes though.
