We stayed here because my sister-in-law wanted us to be close to their neighborhood. What a mistake! We had to pay for 2 nights, as they do not accept reservations for a single night, even in the off season, on the weekends. We wanted to get a decent room as long as we were paying so much, and settled on the corner room on the top floor, overlooking the ocean. This was supposed to be a very nice "suite." Our first impression was looking at the view through dirty windows. Our second impression was the musty smell (musty is a kind word) in the room. Lastly - the room looked to have been furnished in 1950 and not updated (or deep cleaned) since. The bathroom was new, although very, very small. Finally, as we were leaving about 5:30 am the next morning, we were confronted with a homeless man sleeping in the lobby. No staff overnight of course, so this may be a regular occurance. It was jarring to say the least. We could not get out of there fast enough.
