Good Value for ocean views.

No where else is going to get you a decent room with a balcony and ocean views at this price point. Staff were nice and friendly. The rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. However the entire hotel is pretty dated but I can see how it would have been a preety great hotel in the early 90s. Pool left a bit to be desired full of sand and overlooked by the hotels busy resturaunt. Also if you go to bed before 11/midnight bring some earplugs restraint has loud live music at night, I liked it adds to the fun atmosphere of the area but I am sure some people don't like it. Overall if I got the room at the same rate I would probably stay here again.

Not a perfect view

First of all when I try to check in the person who was helping me couldn't find my booking on the system so I had to wait, I had to park my car a block away from the hotel which is wasn't convenient at all, then when I was booking my room I thought I ask for a "oceanfront" view but our room was blocked by the roof of the bar. My stay in that hotel wasn't what I was expecting. Not going back for sure.

Location is great, the hotel and room are not!

The room was NOT nice, still had a tube TV, missing light fixture, WiFi didn't even work, they only give you 3 towels, the beds were old and too soft. I could go on and on but I won't. All that for a mere $300/night. Simply put, if you have other options, go somewhere else.

Fantastic Family Getaway

Great for a getaway. Price was perfect. Room was clean and ocean view was great. Very peaceful. It's an older hotel but was very nice to stay a few days and for the price. I would definitely come again.

family getaway

went to the beach with the kids. fridge didn't really get that cold. there was a table but no chair, tv and tv stand were old and worn, comforters were old and scratchy. best part of rooms were the bathrooms...new and clean! there was a bar downstairs that blasted live music until 10pm...wish i had been forewarned about this as would not have stayed here with my 3year old! had to keep her up late as the only thing that would have drowned out the music wouldve been the tv on full blast. Couldn't even leave the patio door open to hear the soothing sounds of the ocean :( people with kids need to be aware of this. the staff was fantastic tho!!

Should have listened to reviews

Ok so I read all the reviews on this and thought there is no way all that was possible.. Well I was wrong, the music you can hear from every hotel room we were on the 6th floor and its like they were outside our window. This would have been ok if it was just the Adults but the kids were with us and we were trying to sleep. The Wi-Fi was hit or miss and I would say miss 99% of the time.. we were there 2 night and I think it worked 2 times. The room and patio was super dirty, the side of the bed and the bedside table looked like it had blood on it, the draws were the table sat and the front door were all greasy, the outside patio chairs looked like gummy bears had melted on them and if you shut the bathroom door you would get stuck and had to pound on it to get out. Last but not least the blonde that works at the front desk is the rudest person I have ever dealt with at a hotel. She was rude to the people she was checking in, then she was rude to our kids (who is mean to kids when they ask a question) and then when we were out the pool she came out to kick us out and she was even worse then. My boyfriend tried to joke with her (we were not trying to stay late, when she came down we were actually already walking out) and she looked at him with a very ugly face and made a rude comment. The one thing that was great was the cleaning woman, every time I went to her for new towels or toilet paper she was super polite and couldn't have been nicer, she should be working at the front desk.

Awful hotel

There is no bellman, the front desk staff is over worked and so they take it out on the customers, the pool was disgustingly dirty, the maid takes forever to clean your room, the elevator takes forever to come, and their parking lot is 2 blocks from the hotel

Beachfront getaway

The Grand Ocean Hotel was average overall. There was no coffee pot in the room and no breakfast was offered in the hotel. The room was clean but looked dated overall. The view was outstanding. For the money paid, we felt it did not match the pictures shown on the advertising and was just okay overall.
