I was travelling on business and wanted to avoid staying downtown, since this hotel is only 1 mile away from where I needed to be. The hotel room I stayed in was small - no desk to work at, but fairly clean and comfortable. Truly a boutique hotel and good for a nice romantic weekend. There is NOTHING within a reasonable walking distance as far as food goes. I couldn't find the little market others had mentioned.
The only complaint I have is the restaurant. I decided to try the breakfast buffet, wow what a huge disappointment. It cost $11.95 and was for cold eggs, paper thin bacon and heat serve sausage. The worst part is that here I am in Florida and they only served Tang instead of orange juice. It is no wonder that no one is ever in the restaurant, since if you try the breakfast, you sure wouldn't come back for dinner.
The buildings around the hotel are all under renovation, so the beach is nice and quiet. If you want something more quiet and less expensive then this is the one for you. However, you will have to drive or take a taxi to get to the action. I walked one night and it was about 2 miles round trip.
