We stayed at this hotel 4 nights. Reading the previous reviews, I was worried about construction noise, so emailed the hotel a few weeks before our check in date. They assured me that the room I reserved (partial ocean view) was on the opposite side of the construction site and didn't get much noise (which was true).
The location is super: by the beach, 5-7 minute drive from every good restaurant I found on Yelp, and next to a play ground.
The room, however, was disgusting. When we entered, we noticed a smell coming from the bathroom. The carpets looked dirty. Faucet and countertop of the bathroom looked clean and fairly new, but the rest (tiles, toilet, shower) were old and looked dirty. Even the fresh towels brought in everyday kind if felt old.
We ate our breakfast at the hotel restaurant, but given the price, it wasn't worth it. The quality was average at best.
All in all, I hated spending any time at my room and taking shower in that bathroom, but loved being so close to the beach. My son loved the pool and the playground.
I will not return to this hotel unless they do a major renovation.
