"We had a great one at the front. It's so small, I think they are all nice."
"Choose one facing the front if the hotel for the best views"
"Ask for a room with a view towards the ocean."
"There is no A/C. If in the summertime, get a room on the east side, as the westward facing rooms can get a bit warm."
"There is no elevator. Based on the two rooms we had, I doubt if there is a bad room in the place."
$158 - $251 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
