Great getaway

This is such a nice hotel for a couple to stay in and just enjoy a weekend away. Its not that far from the beach and the city is great overall. The staff is so nice and comfort was their goal, and that's exactly what we received. Definitely coming back when I am in the area.

Average experience

The wending machine was either not there or not working. Was difficult to get watter bottles. Hence, I had to go to the nearby gas station. Average experience for one night.

Good value

Everything was fine except for the internet connection. It was slow and kept cutting off. I told them at check out and they said there were a lot of foreign students staying there for an overseas school. They were probably overloading the connection.
