We were here over President's Day weekend. The room was nice, oceanfront with a balcony, clean, bright and comfy. There appeared to be no heat in the common areas - hallway, stairwells, etc. and it was COLD when we visited. I would hope these areas are air-conditioned in the summertime.
Be advised that the parking garage is steep and narrow. If you drive anything bigger than a mid-size sedan you will have a challenge in the garage. It's not that you can't get a truck or SUV in there but you won't want to try to park any higher than the 2nd level. What goes in must come out!!
The breakfast food was nasty. We had a choice of DIY waffles with some sort of thick strawberry topping (obviously dumped out of a can but not warmed up), biscuits, bagels, toast, sausage links, sausage gravy, COLD lumpy oatmeal, dry cereal, plain yogurt, mushy apples, oranges, skim milk (no regular milk), OJ, apple juice, water, coffee or tea. I've definitely had better hotel continental breakfasts.
The staff was very nice especially Jackie in housekeeping. She made us feel like family when we were checking out. The front desk staff was very nice also. There was a cookie plate on the front desk but it was always empty and I never saw cookies in it. If they aren't going to fill it, they should remove it.
The indoor pool was warm but the room itself was dark and cold and the towel supply was very limited and often there were no towels available. I understand towels disappear so they have to manage their inventory but there has to be a better way so that all guests can have a dry towel.
