Good location and price

Easy to get to the beach by walking. The room was spacious enough.with working amenities. The staff processed my reservation in a timely way and were pleasant. My request for a differnt pillow.was fulfilled quickly. The only down was they uncarpeted floor , It was sticky to bear feet..I didn't mention this to the staff. I was only there for 2 nights.

Perfect for my "shoestring budget" quick getaway

Since I wasn't prepared to pay Waldorf-Astoria rates, I wasn't expecting Waldorf-Astoria accommodations. I was, however, very pleasantly surprised by my room. It looks like a pretty recent renovation, which included a separate seating area, usually found in more expensive "suite-style" rooms. Since I travelled alone, it was the perfect size for me (or a couple). Hopefully, larger rooms are available for groups of 3 or more. The staff was friendly enough. Since I didn't have any complaints, other than the weak mobile phone signal, they had no reason to cater to my requests. It was a very short 1- 2 block walk to the action on Seawall. For the $$, this is my 1st choice for my next visit.

Staff Screaming on the phone

The staff was slow, impatient, and unprofessional. The customers were waiting in line to check in, but the staff was on the phone screaming loudly complaining to her friend about the customers .... Very odd!!!! The room was OK, but you can hear all sorts of noice in the hall way and from next rooms. The breakfast was a joke. Three choices, very dry! We won't go to this specific hotel and we won't recommend it to any friend.
