Lets start with the good. This hotel is newly renovated. Nice lobby, friendly and helpful staff. The room itself is spacious. Plenty of room to move around. The beds and pillows are comfortable. Our room had a nice balcony view of the pool, and we could see the ocean between some buildings. The room was clean. Breakfast was good, consistently restocked with fresh food, and had a nice selection. The breakfast area was not too small.
Now the not so good..The bathroom in the room is WAY TOO SMALL! There is barely any room to move. No counter space. There is no microwave in the room. This is a big deal when traveling with children like we were. There is a microwave in the lobby area that you can use. The pool was small and only 3 and 1/2 feet deep. The parking garage is cramped and expensive, $16 a day.
The hotel location is okay. Plenty of food to eat within a 10 minute walk. We went to Little Italy. Nice selection of restaurants from cheap to expensive. All area amusement parks like the zoo and Sea world are close, within a 10 - 15 minute drive.
