My husband and I spent 4 nights here, in an efficiency suite on the 2nd floor with a view of the ocean. The view was fantastic - we felt it was more intimate with the ocean than from a higher floor - and the accomodations were terrific: not huge, but adequate-sized rooms that had an unusally large combined amount of drawer, shelf, closet, and surface space, so it was very comfortable in terms of where to put our things. The rooms were very stylish, and there is a table in the living room to eat or work at. Continental breakfast was included, and everybody on the staff was very friendly. It's not in the heart of town, which we liked because it was quieter, and we still were able to walk into the downtown area. We could easily ride our bikes both on the promenade and the streets in the neighborhood, and the hotel has a bike rack. If you want to be really connected to the beach, this is the perfect place. I would definitely stay here again, off season, when the price is very reasonable.
