clean as I guess they can get it, it is a very old hotel. Linoleum around tub/shower area was moldy and you could tell it had been pieced where it had been replaced. Shower pressure was excellent so I think alot of water is getting out of the shower, keeping the floor wet, causing rotting and mildew, thus linoleum needed replacing. A clean floor in bathroom would have been nice. Bathroom sink area is painted plywood, nothing fancy. Like I said, a very old hotel. I am guessing from the 1940's? Towels, washclothes and handtowels are rough and thin. They give you 2 towels, washclothes and 2 handtowels. But since they are so small and thin, I asked for extras to be left and the lady from housekeeping was so nice to oblige. Carpet had a few stains on it, not as bad as some I have seen but needed to be cleaned. 2 double beds that were acceptable. Really low and just standard hotel grade. They tell you upfront on reservsation confirmation that code does not allow coffee pots and toasters. So, you cannot have coffee in your room but they provide complimentary coffee in the morning in the lobby. There are no microwaves, not even in the lobby, so you cannot fix yourself a hot cup of tea in the evening. There is a little frig in the room, this was nice for keeping water and little snacks. Thank goodness they had a little table with lamp so you can plug up the computer. They had no WIFI but we had our mobile internet connection so that was not a problem. One of the downsides is that there is no parking, yoiu must park in the public lot across the street, but the hotel covers the cost. Norseman Hotel next door has all the parking that you will see. Also, there are no luggage carts. No carts and pulic parking makes loading/unloading difficult. Two story hotel, no elevators, you pay extra for a room with a porch...which is a long porch you share with everyone on that floor, no private porch. Room keys are actual keys, not the cards, so, understandably, they charge if you lose the key. In addition to the door handle, room doors only have a one sided key deadbolt, no way to make sure any hotel personnel with key does not walk in on you. If I had been there by myself, I would have placed a suitcase up next to the door! Scale of 1(low) to 5 (high)..I would say location is a 5, it is right on the beach and I did not see too many places with such a perfect location and great beach access...but a very busy area. It is also very close to alot of restaurants and shops. Walls are thin, can hear slight noises in next room or overhead. But i would have to say 2 on hotel ammenities, cleanliness, bed comfort. So, I give it a 3 overall.
if carrying luggage up stairs is a problem for you, request a downstairs room.
