The Hotel Atwater is well located, clean, nicely decorated, and has great service. I think the experience one has at the Atwater is directly proportional to the price paid. We paid $109 per night over spring break for an "upgraded double queen" room, so our expectations were pretty low. We were pleasantly suprised by how nice the lobby was. This historic 1920's hotel has been recently remodeled with fresh paint and furnishings. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Our room was spacious, clean, and the bed and bedding were confortable and clean. The Hotel Atwater is primely located right near Crescent Avenue (the main street running along the water) which makes it easy to pop in for a clothing change or a siesta whenenver needed.
There were one or two downsides. The room didn't have a dresser, bathtub, fridge, or a microwave. And while they served Starbucks coffee in the morning, they didn't have a continental breakfast.
