This hotel looked so charming & we were looking forward to staying there. We were not told that there was construction directly in front of the hotel that started at 8:00am even on Saturday. We asked for a room in the back to avoid the noise & then had to drag our suitcases over gravel to get to the building...

We booked to stay here under 2 separate bookings as a pre cruise stay. Finding the place proved challenging as the taxi driver was unsure as to where it was. On arrival we got to reception to find that my booking could not be found but my friends booking could be found. As we had arrived late at night there...

Booked this hotel, pre-cruise on the recommendation of some friends from the UK. We booked directly through the hotel 1 YEAR IN ADVANCE as well. There were four of us, and we booked the two room suite with a center bath. Having researched them online and through the word of my friend, these were indeed the rooms to get. Four...

Wonderful location and the price is right. Friendly staff. Surrounded by restaurants and plenty of people watching. The place has a youthful vibe. The breakfast was minimal at best but serviceable. Clean room and great to have a beach chaise, umbrella, and comfortable mat waiting for us just down the street.

We're both 22 and had the best stay at the Clay. Located right on Washington Ave, irks a 10 minute walk (2 blocks) from the beach and walking distance to so many restaurants, shops and also the Lincoln Road Mall. Alfonzo at the front desk was amazing with our check in. The only downsides: it is not a traditional hotel....
