Stayed there for 4 nights and out of those 4 night only had 1 night of peace and quiet. When we first arrived in our room it was a bit warm since we were staying in a bay view room but that was not the case. It only got cool at night because we had to keep the curtain closed. The a.c. started making a loud noise in the middle of the night and didn't stop till the next afternoon around 6pm. Also when we arrive in our room went to get ice and the ice bucket was full of bugs, asked if we could be moved and they tolds us NO, because they were completely booked. There was a country concert on the saturday at Hogan's beach and when we got back that night after dinner and didn't even find a parking spot because they let the concert goers take up the parking spots so we had to park on the curb. Also there was a family reunion going on in the hotel and the families staying on our floor let their kids hang out by our room and they were yelling and laughing loud until I had to tell them to be quiet. The bed was harder then laying on the ground. The only thing that was good about the whole stay was that the fridge was super cold. For what we paid for the stay definitely NOT worth the $$$…
