At the risk of repeating what has already been said repeatedly, my wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Impala this week.
Charming Italian villa-style location tucked behind restaurants just 2 blocks from the beach. We found our room to be spacious (standard queen) and more than luxurious enough for our needs. Bed and linens were very comfortable, the room was quiet at night despite location, and thermostat-controlled in-room AC kept us out-of-towners cool from the humidity. The staff was tremendously friendly and helpful, providing directions and tips for dining/shopping and remembering us on our return when they held our key at the front desk.
Other perks included complementary bottled water in the minifridge upon check-in and the beach bag (complete with large beach towels) for our use was perfect. Take advantage of the valet parking - rates are as good as anything else in the area and worth the $5-10 you'd save by juggling garage/lot time limits.
