Stayed 4 nights--the weekend was very noisy at night, but the other nights were perfectly quite. I stayed on the 7th floor--you could here the live entertainment (poolside) Sat/Sun nights all the way up there, even with the balcony door closed, but it was over by 10pm, so no big deal. The king size bed had 6 pillows, all of which were flat and should be replaced with newer, fluffy ones. My room was listed as "partial" ocean view, but it actually had a much bigger and better view than I expected, so you can save a few bucks by choosing that over ocean front if your budget is tight. My room also overlooked the swimming pool, which looked very clean and was NEVER crowded. It was surrounded by plenty of beach chairs, some with umbrellas. There is also a poolside bar and outdoor dining available poolside or on the beach. On the weekend I got whiffs of food, not the ocean from the dining room, but the rest of my stay I didn't notice it. The hotel phone was out of service for 2 days, but I didn't view that as a big deal, since I had a cell phone, plus I left and walked past the front counter everyday if I needed anything...but, if there should have been a fire or your needed a wake up call, that could be a real issue. Those are really the only negatives. Now let me list the positives...
It's right on the beach with lovely landscaping and plenty of free chairs and a couple of hammocks for your use on the beach (lounge chairs on the beach may be extra). My room and the rest of the grounds was very clean. The room I stayed in had a kitchenette--a small microwave, a mini-fridge, a coffee maker & a small sink with a full counter and cabinets to store your goodies if you are staying there for any length of time. The room also had a small safe to store your valuables.
The room was very spacious and had a small hallway (within your room) to the bathroom that had an additional table and large mirror, which was convenient for dressing and styling hair when the bathroom was in use by someone else. Oh yeah, the bathroom actually had a phone on the side of the vanity.
The balcony wasn't your typical generic square balcony with cheap iron railing or a solid concrete wall that blocks your view--this one was deluxe! First of all it was a semi-circle, with white, colonial balusters, two nice quality, adjustable lounge chairs with thick cushions (not those cheap white plastic chairs you find poolside at budget motor lodges), and even another chair and foot stool tucked away in the corner--all perfect for watching sunrises and sunsets (even lightning over the ocean at night is fascinating).
I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel restaurant. I only had breakfast there due to my schedule, but if I go again, I will definitely try dinner the next time. One day I had the "crispy" French toast, which was very good, and looked so appetizing on the plate with the garnishment they added. Prices were very reasonable compared to what major hotel chains charge for meals in their on-site restaurants.
The location was convenient to highways, the airport, and major malls. When I first pulled up in the parking lot, I thought oh no, what have I done--this place looks tacky! A painting on the front of the building looks very amateur and hokey and dated, and because of that I'm sure a lot of people would pass this place right by and not book a room--I would have done the same thing if I had seen it online first. But, once you're inside it's all good! I would gladly stay here again and prefer it over staying at a well known hotel chain that isn't on the beach. This place has all of the same amenities and is clean. To be clear, this is not a luxury hotel, but it's on an even playing field with Hampton Inns and hotels of that range.
