The service is outstanding at this HIE. The front desk, the ladies that serve breakfast, the cleaning staff. Everyone was really nice and helpful. My wife and 2.5 year old son and I checked in quickly and easily, they gave us a quiet room far from the elevator+vending, even showed me a layout of all the rooms on a chart.
The rooms are spacious, the furniture is nice, granite countertops, small sink with mike+fridge, plenty of space for our stroller and beach junk. LCD tv was decent and free wifi.
The mattress was just mediocre, not impressive at all. Bedding was very good. The AC unit gave off a funny smell and like most hotels, you can't open the windows. You kind of get used to it after a while though. it wasn't horrible, but wasn't pleasant either. The wifi slows to a crawl in the evening, so forget about streaming netflix. Lights are CFL. Everything was clean/spotless. Water pressure on 3rd floor was mediocre / typical.
Breakfast is standard fare, we're vegetarians, so limited to bagels, muffins and cereal. No fruit was put out, but they saw my son fussing and brought a banana for him (again great service in the breakfast room). Next day breakfast room was packed so they overflowed us into a conference room.
TIP: get breakfast early, the room fills up by 8:30 and stays full til 9:30 when breakfast ends.
TIP: on your last day, even though you check out in the AM, you can go to the beach all day and come back to the hotel and take a shower at the pool restroom/shower.
