Do not be fooled by the pictures of this hotel. I expected a clean, bright room, but got a dirty, almost seedy room. I'd compare the quality to a youth hostel rather than a hotel. It really is a shame, because with a little bit of effort, this could be a great spot to go with your family.

Valet 20 mins to check in. Take ticket inside. Get another ticket and then go give new ticket to valet. Lug your luggage up two flights of stairs. No bellmen.

The check in process for this hotel is highly disorganized and extremely disappointing. It really ruins a trip when you start off when a bad experience. This hotel does not have any structure or signs for helping customers check in. Everything from valet to checking in has been extremely complicated, misinformed by staff, and time consuming. I understand this is...

Nice rooms very spacious and very clean. The hotel is located just by the beach, nice ocean view. Clean pool area. But there is really no shopping within walking distance of the hotel. The paid breakfast was not worth it, just eggs and toast no selection, would have gotten something better at IHOP or Denny's for what we paid.

The hotel was very nice. The rooms were nice and spacious. Its a mix between hotel and private condos - so service and privacy included. The pool was a nice and the beach is super close. Complantory valet was a nice feature. All in great price quality ratio.
