Unbeatable view of ocean and surfers

This hotel has an amazing view and location, right on the beach and boardwalk. Rooms were large and clean and had a very comfortable bed. The pool is nice and clean and overlooks the ocean. Surfing is great just a couple of blocks down from the hotel. Staff gave us the idea to rent cruiser bikes and go long the boardwalk. This was a great idea and you get to see not only the fantastic view of the ocean but also some funny and freaky people. Watch out for the slow motion skater.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Me my friends went to a Mexican place a short walk from the hotel called "Gringos". Even if the place looked a little tacky we decided to give it chance and were very happy we did. Great food, price and very friendly staff.

Awesome all the way around!

The location was perfect! We loved being able to swim in the heated pool while seeing and hearing the ocean waves behind a glass enclosure. Our room was comfortable and beautiful. Cannot say enough good about the wonderful staff. They all went out of their way to make our stay the true joy that it was....

Great Escape

We had a large group with two families. Each had their own room, some with teenagers and some with younger children-This was a great fit for all. Something for everybody-including a view to remember. If your thinking about this location (JUST DO IT) Your a short walk from shops and dining, bike rentals and the boardwalk is out your door. No more - " I'm bored " We will return next year for a longer stay.
