The hotel is current being remodeled and that was made completely obvious as we entered the ground floor elevator lobby by the pool. The large flip chart and easel asked guests to 'pardon their appearance' however some thing should be standard. Take for example a room phone that is actually plugged into the wall! We attempted to call for room service the one night and realized there was no dial tone. Nice. That was after we entered our room, flipped the switch and nothing happened. That was due to the recessed light not having a light bulb! Strike 2. The lobby has an ATM but I'm sure you've already guessed, that wasn't plugged in. The front desk attendant said the closest bank was about 12 blocks away, so that wasn't helpful at all.
Other than those 'strikes' our Oceanfront room was nice, with a comfy king size bed, pull out sofa and balcony overlooking the boardwalk. The location is fantastic and the staff was pleasant. 2 star rating is fair for this property.
