All the reviews I read are very positive for this Hotel. All the pics I saw were of very spacious, very roomy accommodations with desks, sofas and some with even kitchenettes. We were placed in a closet with a King size bed in it. Disappointing. I do have to say, the staff is extremely friendly. The Hotel is very immaculate.... More

I've never stayed at a hotel like this before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I was happy to find something close to the beach with free parking, no resort fee, and a free continental breakfast. The room was spectacular! I booked a double queen suite, not knowing it would have a full kitchen, with a Keurig too! It... More

The Fortuna Hotel was a quaint & chic 2 story boutique hotel. We loved the style,comfort and you can tell it had been recently updated. The front desk was always very helpful.

I am staying at this hotel right now. The location is perfect, just a two minute walk to the beach. It is clean and super cute. The mall, shops, and grocery stores are about a three minute drive. Nice quaint, budget, beach hotel.

This place is great! Quiet, clean, close to the beach, free parking, pool, patio - I will definitely stay again. I traded down this trip from a beachside resort. Sure I had a 1 block walk to the beach, but I enjoyed every moment of being off the beaten path. The two-bedroom suite with living room, two baths, and kitchen... More
