I stayed here three nights while on a business trip. Most guests are obviously here on vacation.The sand is literally 20 feet from the hotel, and the ocean-front rooms are beautiful. My room consisted of a king bed, small work desk, and sofa/coffee table area with a gas fireplace. It also has a mini-fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, tea kettle, sink and hotplate. There are good-size flat-screen TVs in both the "living area" and the bed area. The bathroom has both a tub (with rubber ducky!) and a shower, and came with Aveda bath amenities (although the conditioner is no good).
Everything in the room is super-clean, almost germaphobic-standard clean. For example, the coffee pot, mugs and silverware are wrapped in shrinkwrap to show it hasn't been used. The towels and bathrobe could be softer but are clean and fine. There isn't really room service; what they call room service is actually delivery from a local bar. It's about a two-minute walk to the restaurant, so I recommend calling ahead for takeout if you don't order enough food to meet the delivery $20 minimum (or don't want to pay the delivery fee, plus tip). And actually, lots of restaurant choices are within short walking distance, so get out and take a look what's there (just south of the hotel).
My only complaint about this particular room is the noise. When I checked in, they told me I'd been "upgraded" from an ocean-view room (in which you can actually only see the ocean from the balcony, apparently -- do read the room descriptions carefully) to an ocean-front room. However, it seems they only "upgrade" you to one of the ground-level ocean-front rooms, which sit right along an extremely busy walking/biking/skating path. There's not much privacy and it gets pretty noisy until late at night. I wouldn't really consider this an upgrade, although the view is pretty great. The best rooms are the second- and third-floor ocean-front rooms.
The free continental breakfast is high-quality, although there's not much variety. The orange and grapefruit juices taste especially fresh. Breakfast consists of bread, several pastries, mini muffins and bagels, standard pieces of fruit (bananas, oranges, red delicious apples), flavored yogurt and two types of cold cereal. The breakfast cafe has some tables outside overlooking the beach, which was a great way to start the day (if a bit chilly in October).
Staff members were friendly every time we interacted. Overall, an average- to above-average hotel (for the price) in a phenomenal location.
