First off, let me say that this hotel is a great value. It is on the beach, and we stayed there for $94.00 /night. While our particular room didn't really "look out" over the ocean, we could hear it (if we left the patio door cracked open). The area outside of our patio door was not private enough to leave the curtains open, and the view wasn't anything to miss anyway. The room itself was clean, nice looking, and had lots of amenities. The bathroom was clean and worked well. The hotel staff was friendly, helpful, and concerned. Parking was easy, but had an additional cost. I think we paid like... $36 for the week. There were many other advantages to being in this casual a hotel environment (for example, we stored our bikes in the room).
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay during the week, but Friday night there was horribly loud partying in the room directly above us, until about 4 AM. It sounded like they were continuously rearranging the furniture, punctuated by occasional audible explosions of beer bottles being tripped over. At one point, I heard another guest yelling across the courtyard at them to shut up.
The next morning, I spoke with the manager. To the hotel's credit, he gave me a discount for the night, and assured me it would not be allowed to happen again that night. He was genuinely upset that this had happened.
Although the manager did what he could to remedy the problem, in the end we decided to go to a different hotel later that morning. We began to understand the unlikeliness that there are any quiet weekend nights at this hotel.
My advice- a great place to stay on the ocean, Monday-Friday. Find another place to stay for the weekend, unless you don't plan on sleeping.
