The Lobby/downstairs has been renovated recently and looks really nice. We didn't eat in the restaurant, so I can't comment there... The basic hotel is an old Holiday Inn, with the emphasis on old. That being said, it is very solidly built (quiet), but, as you would expect with any structure exposed to all of that salt air, the treads on the stairwells are all corroded, some so bad that you can catch your flip flop on it and trip. I found that the staff didn't exhibit very much pride in their hotel - I say this because I would notice trash in the hallways, and it would remain there for days!! The stairwell by my room also reeked of urine down at the first floor. We also observed some cockroaches in the outdoor hallways...
With all of those complaints, I still give this hotel 4 stars - without them I would give it 5. The room was quiet (the A/C unit excluded). The view was excellent - and all of the rooms have an ocean/beach view.
