Got this hotel via Priceline for a 1-nighter in May. PL grades it at 2.5 stars, which I think is about right. The pool is a nice value-adding attraction, in that they have a bar and, on the weekends, entertainment. The pool is average size, but the 104-degree jacuzzi is comparable to what you see at 3 and 3.5-star places. Many guests appreciated just being able to hang out around the pool for hours, getting drinks and food there as well.
There's a single Internet terminal in the lobby, which is nice when your budget doesn't allow for laptops, wi-fi and all that. The room was well-kept and had a strong air-con. The bed, pillows and sheets were consistent with a 2.5-star place. Standardizing a frig and a microwave is a nice touch, especially with these things likely made inexpensively in China anyway these days.
Having an 11 AM checkout is a slight ding, IMO. Noon is better.
All in all it's one of the better "value" propositions I've seen in the area. Too many "legacy" places on U.S. 1 have lazy managements that stretch out renovations, let the places get tired, but still charge "market" rates based mostly on location. So you pay too much and get too little. This one, though, appears committed to delivering value in return, and for some travelers is a worthy alternative to paying a lot more to be on the beach.
