It started with calling to make a reservation to this hotel. Paul, the front desk manager, was so nice and accommodating. He got us the room we wanted and went above and beyond to make sure our stay was the best. This hotel is literally right across the street from the most beautiful view of the ocean! In the mornings,...

Basically all the hotels you are going to look for in this area are going to be similar. They are large, chain hotels with some goods and some bads. I know people would love to have 5 stars for a 3 star price, but that just isnt reality. This hotel has clean rooms, the lobby is really spacious and welcoming....

I almost exited the lobby upon my arrival. The lobby had a sour smell like a locker room. The odor continued throughout the entire first floor. Luckily, my room was on the second floor. The room was OK and fairly quiet. During my stay, the hotel was home to hundreds of kids who were camped out throughout most of the...

Noise from hallway and ice-machine is annoying. Plumbing fixtures are low quality. Flush did not work well. 4 times flush needed. They charge an additional $15/night for car parking. Booked a oceanfront room and got a noisy parking lot view room.

The hotel is near the ocean. The hotel was obviously not full. Paid for the room with reward points and cash. Asked for an ocean or partial ocean view and was instead placed at the extreme rear of the hotel looking at a drainage ditch. Terrible service.

Room was excellent and there was plenty of room. We were surprised that we had to pay to park as we rarely have that happen except in large cities. The breakfast buffet was excellent and had emelettes made to order. Food was excellent.

Nice staff, older not refurbished recently hotel. The grounds are nice and the ocean is across the street but they charge for parking. Even though they charge for parking it is just parking, no garage, no visible security. The ocean is across the street which is very nice.

I would recommend, and stay again. If you have a car the location works, but not if walking was only mode of transportation. Parking fee seemed a little steep on top of room price. The wifi in our room was terrible, but great in lobby. Pool was awesome.

This was one of the worst hotels I've stayed at in quite some time (in respect to the noise). I am somebody who can sleep through anything and I also use a sound machine so I've never had an issue with noise at a hotel. This place was ridiculous, from about 7a on it sounded like there were gymnasts practicing...

The hotel is nice, clean, and has great views if you choose the ocean view room. Our room had a beautiful, unobstructed view of the ocean, and we liked that there was a microwave and fridge in the room, and even used the free computers in the lobby. The things we were slightly disappointed with were the noise and the...
