From previous reviews, in retrospect I can see that the rooms facing the street get lower marks. Maybe the ocean view rooms are nicer because the ones we were in were very average. The only good thing about this is that it is across from the beach, like many other SB motels.
We checked into a room that smelled so badly of cleaning chemicals--covering up something nasty?--- we immediately asked to be moved . The second room was ok. Basically upgraded motel style. Hotel was very crowded and nothing was available for a paid upgrade. (We would have gladly paid for a nicer room.) The walls and ceiling were paper thin- sounded like elephants were partying in the room above us; we could also hear everyone walking up and down the outside stairs next to our room.
Completely agree with "JackCrowley" about the parking. though we were lucky to find free parking on the street each night.
Not what I expect of Hyatt properties. Wouldn't stay here again
