I really enjoyed my stay here. Great, spacious room with a big balcony. We did not book the ocean view, but I thought we had a great view anyway! We were still able to see part of the ocean, it just wasn't a full ocean view.
The hotel is within an easy walking distance to the Esplanade and the restaurants and shops. There is a nice pool (no jacuzzi) and the laundry machines were useful (pretty old, but they work).
The front desk is staffed 24 hours, which was nice since we had a very early morning flight on our way out.
Small quibbles: there was an odd smell from the drain in the bathroom floor, and overall, the hotel felt a bit dated. Also, the free internet is mainly accessible from the pool and hotel lobby area, so if you were counting on it being in the room--nope! Overall though, great value.
