I chose this hotel because of the in-room kitchen, but will stay here again because of the staff. Everyone including front desk staff, cleaning staff, kitchen personnel, and the manager recognized me and greeted me genuinely. After a week they knew my name, room number, and preferences.
I stayed for 5 weeks and the suite was large enough that I never felt claustrophobic. Everything was clean and new. The electronics were up to date (an iPod/iPhone alarm clock, charging dock near the front door, plenty of plugs at the desk, flat screen TVs). The last of the facility remodel was completed during my stay and never had an impact on my life it was so well organized. My only complaint is a preference: the bed was softer than I like.
I also liked the location: close enough that I could get to Trader Joes or Target when I needed to, but not located on busy streets. The beach was less than 10 minutes away and easy to get to.
Finally, the room rate was a bargain!
