This hotel is not hard to see at all... right on the main road off of Hwys. 1 & 17. The problem is that (at least when traveling north on Ocean) the sign is not visible at all, and before you know it you're in front of the next hotel (and by that time you have to go completely around the block because of medians and traffic). Once that was figured out, we had a great stay. Nicely decorated rooms and convenient location to get on the highway, only a couple miles to the boardwalk/ocean. Lots of restaurants on Ocean. Did not care for the breakfast (the OJ was watery), so we went to Denny's across the street. But would still stay again. Parking lot under building is VERY tight if you're driving anything but a compact. But doable.
