We booked online hoping to spend the night near a relative and selected a premier double with ocean views.
The staff was friendly and efficient however my daughter's first observation was that it smelled old - both my wife and I agreed but continued to check in.
The common areas enroute to our room were marginally maintained and showed evidence of years of use without replacement.
The view was great - directly facing the sand and surf....
On the other hand the room was in dis repair:
Curtains with rotted out backing and zip ties securing them
Chairs with fabric worn thru to the foam
Wall paper stapled to the wall for repair
Security latch nearly torn from the door
This was too much - so we decided to leave.
On our way out we observed a foot long red smear on the elevator door that appeared to be blood - yuck!
When I presented the front desk with photos and asked for a full refund it was done immediately and we moved to another hotel - they need some competition!
