My husband and I stayed here for four nights and had a great time. We stayed right off the first floor lobby which I was worried about since the room was around the corner but we never had any issues with noise! It was amazing. And so convenient to walk in off the street or from the beach and head to our room without having to use an elevator! Felt like home! Being steps from the beach was convenient. The Betsy has beach towels/umbrellas/chairs available for you as well. Loved that! I enjoyed the beach so much more being on a cushy plush lounge chair and towel. My husband had to work some when we were there and was able to do it comfortably at the bar in the morning while sipping some joe. This hotel was close to everything but it was at the end of the street away from all of the places yelling about free drinks and trying to sell you dinner at 3pm. If you walk toward Collins you can avoid all of the hawkers on Ocean.
