My family (spouse, 3 yr old, 7 month old) stayed at B Ocean while I attended a work conference being held there. The hotel was nice, but pricey in our opinion. 1) You must valet park your vehicle if you bring one, as parking is at a premium so close to the beach. At $25 per day on top of the hotel rate, this adds up quickly. Hotel staff are quick at retrieving your car, but if you would like to save a little money, there is a public lot that costs $10 per night that is located directly behind the hotel and the walk to it is 75% covered by business awnings. 2) We ate at the B'stro restaurant at the hotel our first night. Service was excellent, but once again, for the price, I would recommend eating elsewhere. We got sandwiches and our son got grilled cheese. They were all overwhelmed by too much bread. We took the bread off and ending up just eating the meat. I would prefer Panera for a light meal over B'stro. 3) Views from all rooms see the ocean. We did not get an upgraded room for a better view, but did not need it. 4) The double room was adequate for the four of us and there was enough space to set up the pack n play we brought. The hotel provides Aveda toiletries which was very nice, but the toilet paper was rough. I don't believe it is an exaggeration to say the McDonald's we stopped at on our way had softer tissue. 5) Due to rain during our stay, we did not get to use the pool or walk across the street to the beach 6) on the back side of the hotel, there is a 'by-the-slice' pizza place, an ice cream shop and a couple of bar-type establishments that had burgers, etc. We only had ice cream, which was very good. If we had known the others were there sooner, we would have definitely tried them to avoid eating in the hotel.
