nice room

Everything was very nice. Great location, view of beach, comfortable room and access to the bar and restaurant. I just wish the pool would have been available. It was closed and needing a part.

Room Location

We've stayed at the Park Shore many times, but not booked thru ______. We were put in the room we had once before and objected and were given a better located room. We requested a change this time and were told this is the room they use for discount reservations. The room is on the second floor. The view is of the first floor gravel roof, probably the least desirable room in the hotel.
