This hotel is perfect location right on the strip in town but not too close to bars for all the noise. Fabulous views of the water from most rooms and right across the street from the beach. Nice well appointed spacious rooms of different sizes.

Clean, reasonably quiet for a downtown location, easy to get fresh air to the room (balcony door and AC/Heater with outside air intake). Plenty of water flow in shower, and a nice, spacious bathroom. Plenty of closet space and hangers. Staff was great. Quick check-in/check-out,...More

Make sure you request a room with a view of the water. Hotel is updated and close to the water. Little balcony’s off most rooms to enjoy the sun and view. Also the cafe associated with the hotel was great for a quick lunch.

Our repeat guests become like family, and being described as perfect feels exceptional. Next time you stay with us, mention your review and we will have a surprise waiting in your room!

Very overpriced for the lack of quality I was expecting...Well overdue for a total upgrade to justify the inflated prices charged. The location was okay...off the main frontage road, which was probably a plus.

There is a golf cart rental kiosk right outside Hotel Metropole. I would imagine that on summer weekends you would need to book weeks in advance, especially holiday weekends!

Avoid the 'steep' hill especially since you'll likely be pulling luggage (level walk to hotel). As you walk up north Crescent Avenue (from the boat landing piers) and get to METROPOLE AVE...turn left and hotel property is... More
