Good: Location next to Ocean drive. Nice rooms. Clean. Free airport shuttle, perfect! The shuttle picked us up at the airport and drove us straight to the hotel for free. Bad: No breakfast (big grocery store 20 minutes walk from the hotel and 7Eleven one block from the hotel).Loud music at night. Friendly staff.

I only stayed one night in room 220. Raul and the Haitian security guard was very helpful as well as the front desk staff. The only thing missing was a towel rack to hang the bath towel or hand towels.
