3 star review
The hotel was in a great location, close to the pier and stores which we love all walking distance, but there website never stated that the bar was closed or the restaurant, they never told us that the laundry room was closed , or that certain gym equipment was broken, also the AC was too loud ,I understand that they are closing due to remodeling but they should include this on there website , the stay wasn’t worth the $$$$ I paid…. our view out the window was McDonalds lol but that was ok wasn’t expecting a perfect view. Staff was ok but seemed bothered when you asked a question .

8/10 Very good

The location its excellent. Everything is within walking distance. Rooms clean and spacious. Safe and easy parking, a bit expensive and not free but convenient. There is a staff member at the door all the time helping with anything you may need, very helpful. Here is the not so good. Two times went to the front desk and both time the clerk was arguing with a guest about something not being as it was paid for. And there was some work being done and the contractor were using the elevator not allowing guests to use them. It took me to yell at them and ask the housekeeper to reach the manager for them to leave one elevator free for the guests. That should had been coordinate, did not appreciated being waiting for a elevator 10 min along with other guests.

Dont recommend this hotel
For the amount of money paid to stay i expeted a nicer room. There was no refrigerator or microwave, which is much needed with kids. I even asked the receptionist if they had a microwave i can use and they said no. Room was alot smaller than the picture on the website. During checkout we had to take the elevator since i had my child stroller and MANY suitcases . Apparently they had workers taking furniture down from the top floor using both elevator which made it impossible for us to take the elevator down. Took over 20 min for us to finally get into the elevator had to tell one of the workers to let us in . It was an unpleasant experience definitely dont recommend staying there especially with kids.

6/10 Good

The place was just ok. Had partial ocean view but windows were very dirty on the outside, and big bird turd on it so it actually hindered the view. Really old and yucky carpet in hallways, didn’t even lay flat. They said I would not have housekeeping but I could get towels etc, I stayed 2 nights. It was ok. Won’t stay there again for those prices.
