Stayed here over Memorial Day weekend in a ground floor double queen room with my dog. The room was perfectly acceptable, including two beds (which to my untrained eye looked more like doubles than queens), a sitting table with two chairs, desk, flat screen TV, refrigerator, small coffee maker, and full bath with the sink and dressing area separate from the bathtub and toilet. The hotel is located on the east side of Elizabeth St., so it's not oceanfront, but the balcony had a great across the street ocean view. it's also within easy walking distance of Nye Beach and all it has to offer. The wireless Internet connection was not the fastest, but the signal was strong, and I was able to do all that I needed to do with it. Breakfast, available in the lobby, included coffee, pastries, cereals, and fruit. I was leery when I saw a couple with a baby check into the room next door, but never heard a peep from the child through the walls. Did hear footsteps in the room directly above, but not to the point where it was disturbing. Bed was comfortable; pillows were so so. I'd like to try a deluxe king room next time to see what it's like. Definitely recommended.
