Got a room with a balcony view of the ocean, it was cool inside 'temp-wise' but the humidity was very high and the bedding and carpet felt damp and dank to the touch. They have an 'in-the-wall' unit for heating and cooling and it's kind of loud and annoying when running. There is no return air ducts so even though the temp is cool feeling, the humidity is still noticeably present. When you sit out on the balcony in the cheap plastic chairs and the 'unit' kicks on, it blows warm air at you and is annoying and loud.
The furniture provided in this double queen room was cheap looking and sure enough, when I pulled on the drawer to open one up, it stuck. And so did the one at the desk area.
The bathroom was clean looking, I used the shower and was disappointed once again when that big ole shower head produced only a steady trickle of water. Four trickles actually. I could and did use it, but it took awhile.
Overall, the beach and weather were great, I love the area, and the room rate was around $100 a night. There are several good restaurants in the area.
