It's location in the middle of front beach IOP. The staff is extraordinary. Housekeeping is excellent. There could be better outdoor relaxation amenities.

The check-in was good, the room is clean and the view is beautiful. It’s a very nice property.

Right on the beach. Excellent staff and clean property!

Very personable accommodating staff. Clean rooms. Parking was a little inconvenient, but it was due to the set-up on the Island. Other than that great location, easy access to beach !

Never stayed in a hotel with no windows in the room that look outside. Not goid

Close to beach but we had an inside room and could not move to a waterfront room

Parking fees. Noise room to room. Staff very good.

It was fine. Should have had rugs or mats because floors always felt sandy.

The hotel was bright and clean. Friendly staff. On the beach with easy access.

Our room was very clean & comfortable, restaurants & shopping within walking distance. Beach is beautiful.

Great location, walk out the back and onto the sand. Some odd choices made by the hotel – placement of "closet" and mattress is very soft – it almost felt like a water bed. They didn't necessarily sweep the floors everyday, so there was a lot of sand, which got in our bed because there was nothing to wipe it on. We ended up putting towels on either side to wipe our feet off before climbing into bed. They didn't take the trash out everyday. The breakfast so a total carbo-loading event: cereal, muffins, toast, bagels, mini cinnamon rolls, scones, and sweet yogurt. Sometimes they had eggs and deli meat, and even avocado. The bathroom only had one light. So you had to keep the shower curtain open to shed light on the other area. There's an $8/day parking fee we were not aware off until check-in. But it was newly renovated, had great proximity to the beach, and a smallish pool. The room was very large.

The hotel is lovely. Check in staff was very good. However, there was sand in both beds when we got in and all over the floor-meaning sheets had not been changed between guests. Front desk was not surprised and did nothing to compensate.

We enjoyed our oceanfront room, especially its balcony with chairs & table. The continental breakfast was really quite nice. The first guest we saw said not to use the elevators, so that might be an issue to address. Room cleaning was ok, but not where it could be. The coupon for the beach chair rental was much appreciated and the company was easy to work with. The location and beach in front of the hotel is great. We totally enjoyed our stay and would return.

Continental breakfast was just ok. No fresh fruit. While it was on the beach there was no where to sit and watch the beach except on your balcony. Unless you are lucky enough to get a room facing the beach all you get is a side view. Ours looked onto a restaurant bar patio where unfortunately they had a terrible singer performing until 10 each night. This hotel is next to public beach access so is very crowded out front on the weekends. We needed to walk down a block or more to finds some semblance of beach privacy. For the rate it was fair. Parking across the street in a public lot so might be problematic in high season.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We are sorry that your experience with our rooms didn't meet your expectations. For our most economic rooms, we do offer the Traditional Interior Non-view where the window looks into the interior breezeways. However we do offer other rooms categorized by view, some of which are partial views and some are full views of the ocean. Thank you for taking time to give us your feedback, as we will use this to improve. We would love to have you back as our guests and accommodate you in rooms that have a more suitable view for your needs!

Thank you for staying with us. Unfortunately, due to the construction of the hotel we must use the city's municipal parking lot at a discounted rate. Also, we are working hard to explore all solutions to alleviate noise within the rooms. Your feedback is much appreciated and we hope to have you back to experience the improvements we make.
