Let me first start off by saying that I was extremely excited to stay at a place so close to the beach. And that is a good aspect of the hotel- probably the only hotel. And I call it a hotel because it is exactly that. It is absolutely not a resort.
I stayed there because the wedding reception my friend and I attended was there which was nothing special. The room itself was terrible. The handles were broken on the cabinets and the beds were uncomfortable, supplemented with an awkward 3 pillows. The sheets were terrible and the comforter felt like cardboard. The only reason I got any sleep was because I was a bit intoxicated.
But I haven't got to the worst of it. The hidden fees. $12 few for wifi which was never used, an unheard of facility and occupancy "tax" and THEN -- this is the kicker-- they TAXED OUR TAXES. Ended up paying $65 extra for a room that had a supposed "group flat rate".
I caution you to not stay here. I know that Lon branch does not have many options in terms of hotels but ocean place knows the same thing. And they will milk you for it.
Almost forgot, they didn't even answer the phone at the main desk at 8am when I let it ring for about two minutes before that too frustrated me.
