    This was my 4th stay - have the best breakfast, nice rooms, good decor and free bikes to use. Nice location to beach and promenade - about 8-10 blocks. Quiet area - near hospital but never heard noise. Always friendly service.More

    Reviewed July 13, 2014

    The staff, location and facilities (including self-parking which is essential in the area) deserve an outstanding ranking. However, the quality of the included breakfast is a negative. Too many pastries, muffins, and sweet offerings and a deficiency of healthy offerings.More
