Stayed here one night, total cost approx $100, however it was the start of the July 4th holiday week & the town was getting packed out & expensive, so price was comparable to other properties that were advertising & this place had better customer reviews.
Start with the cons:
- not on the water / beach, thus no "views" and no walking access to beach
- not super close to anything / immediate walking distance
- in a meh part of town (light industrial type area); if you want to stay in a ritzy neighborhood, this isn't it
- not near a Starbucks (for those travelers for whom that is very important)
However there are a lot of pros:
- property itself was nice & well kept & felt safe
- rooms large, clean & well maintained
- small pool & hot tub -- again clean & well maintained
- continental breakfast in am
- staff were pleasant
- very convenient to Whataburger Statium & the water park (~2 min drive away) and to downtown with its various restaurants (~3 min drive) and the museum zone & the ocean walk (~5 min drive), all on surface streets. Super convenient if you're going to a game or to the water park.
- super easy freeway access: right off a freeway exit that was well marked but not busy. Easy to find, hop off & on.
Bottom line: I'd stay there again, it's a good value. If the location works for you -- then you could pay a lot more for a place that's less nice.
