We had a great time at the Dorchester. They had onsite parking & the staff was super friendly. Located in a great area. We walked everywhere. They have beach access across the street at their sister hotel. You get free chairs, towels & umbrella. Our suite was super cute. Like retro 50's Hollywood. Myself & 2 teenagers really enjoyed ourselves...

Good location handy to beach and shops. Room was clean but basic. Having a fridge was good. The first night of our stay we woken at 4.30am by construction workers about to start work right outside our window. The noise was shocking. We went down to reception at 6.30am to complain and we were relocated to a room across the...

Dear tomboi313, Thank you for sharing your honest feedback with us, and our future guests! Our guests feedback means the world to us! The construction work that you are speaking about is not being preformed here at Dorchester. It's in the building on the other side of 19th street.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Staff are great and very friendly. We were not expecting much but were surprised with how nice the room was. Beds were comfy and room was big enough. Free wifi was a plus. Great location, not too noisy and close enough to Main Street. The only downside was that the pool was too warm. The...

We have stayed 3 nights in this hotel. I would not recommend it if you want to spend a good night's sleep. The windows do not isolate any noise, so you hear all the noise from the very busy street. At 8 am the cleaning staff is waiting to get started and makes a lot of noise in the corridor...

The location of the hotel is very good. However, it is a old style hotel, with regular rooms.The price is very high for what is offered and the hotel do not have a breakfast included. It is very near the beach.
