From the pictures and description, I thought the hotel would be really close to both the pier park and the beach - not! It was at least a mile from both. We arrived at about 6:30 PM and had noticed that many of the nearby restaurants were very crowded. The hotel staff offered to call a non-beach, seafood restaurant close by to see if they could seat us right away. We were grateful to the recommendation and support. However, that evening, we found that the hotel Wi-Fi hotspot did not show up on either our computer or our cell phones. The next morning, when we were ready to load the car, we noticed that there were no luggage carts. We notified the staff of both the lack of Wi-Fi and the lack of luggage carts and they did not appear to be very concerned. We also told them that the advertising was misleading because they wer not very close to either the beach or the pier park.
