Great location and amenities. Pool, rooms and premises were extremely clean. Coffee shop is a rip off however the restaurant was reasonably priced with great food. Mostly families and bus conference attendees staying there. Parking is expensive, however it’s secure behind a gate. Right across from the beach but a bit far to walk to state street. Overall great location if you just want to get away.

Hotel's Favorite
This hotel is so beautiful and cozy. The staff is above and beyond exceptional!!! We were greeted outside as soon as we pulled up. The front desk took their time, explained our stay and all amenities that were included. We had an issue with our room and they did not hesitate to make it right. Breakfast is served at The Round Table and our server Stacy was the nicest person we met on the whole trip. We also dined at The Set and the food and service was no disappointment. Short walk to the beach and the hotel grounds are delightful to walk around too. Ping pong table, cornhole and foosball table for entertainment. We will be coming back with our kiddos.

Absolutely horrible hotel. Not worth the money for the amount chargers. Hotel has homeless persons frequenting the lobby. Drug users using on the hotel grounds. A hotel employee encouraged us not to walk far from our room after dark. The hotel itself is dirty and in dire need of updating. The common areas are filthy, the hallways wreak of must and walls are stained with grime. Our ocean view room only had views of overgrown shrubs, trees and drug addicts in crisis who were congregating on the hotel walkways. Not too mention the hotel double charged my credit card and I was alerted by my credit card company. When I brought it to the attention of the hotel I was met with condescending and rude attitudes. Terrible overall.

My husband and I stayed there for two nights. The view is fantastic even in foggy mornings. This usually clears up before noon. The hotel provides giant versions of chess and checker boards outside and close to the pool area. There are plenty of shade umbrellas. The facilities and rooms are clean. Staff is friendly. Lobby has a Starbucks café great for breakfast, closes before or around noon hours though. It also has a sit down restaurant, if you are are looking for a more sophisticated meal.
