We were also pleasantly surprised at how good the hotel was for the money. All rooms directly face the beach and have a balcony with a nice sliding door. Upon our arrival, we were informed rooms got wet from the wind blast from hurricane Ernesto and that worried us a little. The rooms, however, were dehumidified and you could tell the staff worked hard to make them acceptable. We were even upgraded to a king without asking(we had chosen two doubles to save money). The one test of the service here was when I asked for a fridge to be put in my room. Whaddya know, in 5 min I got a knock on the door and there stood an "engineer" with a mini-fridge from downstairs.
The location is perfect. Across the street is a cafe, Haagen Daas, and Krispy Kreme, and the hotel resides on the concrete "boardwalk".
There were a few downsides. Guest services tried to pitch me a condo they were building down the road after I asked a question about where to eat. I didnt really want a sales pitch. Also, the rooms are somewhat small, but acceptable. I think people are being too picky when they evaluate this hotel!! This is no 4-star hotel, but certainly a quality one. I would come back.
