I find it hard to truly rate hotels against each other because the locations and context vary so much. Compared to other hotels in the area, this certainly is one of the best. Yes, the rooms are a little bit older and the water pressure is laughable, but that's about all the negatives I have personally about this place. It is always clean and the staff has always been excellent to us. The location is very convenient to walk to other attractions like the pier, shops, kayak rentals, and a handful of restaurants. Of course, it is a very short walk to the beach just over the dunes. During the summer (and maybe other times too), there are many, many weddings at this hotel - which means there are many guests there having a good time. We have never been bothered by them or by excessive noise, but that may be an exception. There is an indoor pool and spa as well as an outdoor pool with a tiki bar (which is sometimes too convenient). We have stayed in both ocean front and sound view rooms. The ocean front are nice because they have a balcony and of course great views. The sound view room is the same size but with no balcony. Overall, we really enjoy this hotel and continue to return yearly.
