The location is the only draw back of this great little gem of a hotel. And by location, I mean it's in a bit of an industrial area, not a regular resort area. HOWEVER, it's right on the beach, with a lovely lawn that slopes down to the beach and a darling gazebo which overlooks the beach. It is an older property but is taken care of and spotlessly clean. The room had obviously been recently upgraded: nice shower with rain head and wall mounted bath gel and shampoo dispensers. The interior doors had been replaced with lovely wooden louvered doors and high end hardware. The air conditioner had a digital remote control.
Still waiting to be upgraded: Internet is not wireless (this is such a CHEAP upgrade, I can't believe they haven't done it yet), but they do have lan cords in the room. The TV in our room was old and small.
The sheets were really nice, ironed and starched. I would recommend they ditch the bedspreads, but they were obviously clean. Pillows were not great.
Flooring in the common areas is pretty worn.
The lobby is lovely, and the pool is nice. The pool is on the second floor and is on the street side of the property. A little weird, since it would be nice to have it in that grassy area toward the ocean. But the pool does have a privacy wall and my guess is when it's windy that makes the pool a little more pleasant.
We rented the room because we were taking the red eye that left at 1am. We checked in around noon. Their normal check in time is 3pm and they were very accommodating about letting us come in early. The housekeeping staff was working the floor as we checked in. It was clear from their comments that they took great pride in doing an outstanding job. I was impressed.
If you wanted a bargain and are willing to drive a bit to get to attractions I could see spending several nights at this location.
