The only real complaint I had about this place was that the walls are so thin you can hear everything thats going on and thats really not great when some drunk person decides to stand in the hallway talking as loud as possible at 2am.
Other than that it was clean had a good vibe and staff were friendly and helpful. Location is perfect and is right by the water and by the main strip with easy access to the bars and restaurants. Kitchen was well equipped with a nice big balcony looking over the water. Bed was okay but not that comfortable and the lighting in the bathroom was terrible.
