"The restaurant next door can be noisy. Ask for (a larger) room in the second building behind the restaurant."
"Do not book. Disgustingly dirty."

"Maybe see if you can have the fourth floor may get a better ocean view."
"Get a room in the "2nd building", perhaps on the 3rd floor. MUCH newer than the original building. There IS an elevator--thankfully!"
