Stayed at the Ocean Crest for 2 nights, in one of the rooms with a private balcony. The best thing about this hotel is that it is right on the beach.
The room, while clean, was very damp. Everything from the carpet to the comforter to our clothes, felt damp. Maybe we just got a bad room or the AC wasn't functioning properly. There was a pronounced musty/smoky smell. This was not good for my wife, as she has allergies. The lighting was very harsh, fluorescent, and if it flickered a little bit more it could have been the set of a horror movie. We felt that for the price, $150/night, the amenities were a little skimpy. There were no tissues in the room and the toilet paper was worse than what you would find in a bus terminal. We asked for a late check out time and were granted a one hour extension, which was nice until they called the room at 11.45 asking where we were. The bed was pretty bad and not comfortable. It was very firm/hard.
