The rooms were fairly modern with outdated bathroom. Clean and comfortable while not the level of some of the B&B's we stayed at, it was fine for 1 night before flying out. Good AC in room. No balcony. Only 15 mins from the airport. It is located right on the waterfront and the boardwalk hotel and casino is a short 5-10 minute drive away. Nice casino and several great food options at the boardwalk. Also some decent shopping. Area was comfortable and felt safe. This felt like a step down in quality only because we had just stayed for almost 2 weeks in some of the most amazing B&B's and there are far better cities to visit than port Elizabeth which is a shipping town with little to see and do. We would not repeat this city if we were going back but if we had to we would stay at the Paxton again for its convenience of location to the airport.
