The staff was very helpful with any question we had. The breakfast was very good and the lady working there was so nice. The room was clean and in good condition. No real complaints, but the walk to the beach was more like three blocks than the block and a half advertised. However, the walk was easy and you can drive right up to the beach in a few minutes if you are taking lots of stuff. Do be prepared to pay $12 for a parking permit for beach parking. The permit is good for the rest of the year, so if you go several times, as we did, it was well worth the money. If there isn't anyone selling them at the beach entrance area, the permits are available at any convenience store and one is located a few blocks from the hotel.
