I read the reviews and saw the pictures---so I knew it was small and not fancy--but the location sounded great and the previous reviews were very positive. In short I was told I would have an ocean view room which later changed to "that was booked but I will give you a larger room"---too late to change plans. Our room was very small,shabby and less than clean.The room felt like something kids would go to for spring break with extremely worn furniture to say the least--we slept in our clothes for the 1 night we stayed. We tried to make the best of it ---but the thought of staying there for 10 nights was just not something we could stand. I felt dirty and a bit scared in the neighborhood. We left the next day and spent our first full day of vacation scrambling to find other accommodations (which turned out great--although in another city).
I would not recommend for couples but probably great for a single guy or guys who wants to be close to the beach.
Rich and I worked out an amicable arrangement after our departure.He also thanked me for my "third person point of view" and has since gotten a new bed and furniture in the room.There is major construction going on next door to hotel also.
I do believe he is trying and feel that the place will eventually come together as all of Hollywood seemed to be in a state of some deterioration and is trying to make a comeback. It would have just been nice to have a "realistic" idea of what to expect.
