My friends and I have stayed here in years past and this was the first time in about 4 years that I came back to this hotel. What a difference. the hotel has been remodeled and refurbished. No longer is the smell of curry wafting thru the hallways. The new rooms are furnished in a modern clean minimalistic way. The beach is less than a block away and there is a rental store next door that had beach chairs, boogie boards and bikes that gives a great deal when staying at the Grandview. Didnt have a room with a ocean view but who cares since I just stepped out the door and the ocean was right there! prices were reasoable and they dont charge for parking. Will definitely return!
