For a first time visitor to the town and hotel Diana was a huge help in walking me through the myriad of room options available. We settled on an ocean front room and the balcony was perfect for enjoying the sunset. But as many have noted, this is really just a very expensive motel. Having stayed in water front resorts in Florida and Northern Michigan, at comparable prices, I have to say this greatly pales in comparison. The room was very small (no ocean front suites were available and I had no idea how tiny the room would be), the tv does not have HD (at these prices it should be a given), and the single computer in the hallway of the lobby is a cheap laptop connected to a printer. Additionally, the turn down service was nothing more than pulling the sheets back and dropping four chocolate mint sticks on them. A first rate property would have dimmed the lights, set the clock radio to a soothing station (if the room had a clock radio, which it didn't) and set four Godiva chocolates on the sheets. But this is an upscale motel, not a first class property or resort. Lastly, we could not close our door when leaving without the door latch blocking it. I got the impression it's been that way for decades. I suppose if they could get away with all that at these premium prices, all the power to them. But don't say you weren't warned.
