    Rooms are a bit dated but clean and felt safe. Parking is always a problem. There was no information about check-in, check-out, breakfast, beach, or local places to eat and visit in the room.

    We loved the location and the beautiful view of the ocean. The area was convenient to restaurants and shopping. We traveled 20 to 30 minutes each day to golf courses. However, upon check in the front desk people were very nice. Our room was a little dated and furniture was worn out. I can get past the issue that it was minimal. I had to contact the front desk five days in a row for issues regarding never cleaning our room, no clean towels, no other supplies or trash emptied, floors were sticky upon check in, never mopped while we were there. I was told that they had a lot of guests checking out and they had to clean the rooms for their New guests and Simply did not have time to get to our room. Commode stopped up and we called early in the morning, returned to our room late in the evening and commode had not been touched or our room not cleaned. Asked front desk if they could move us to another room that was serviced and the front desk person indicated she was not authorized to do anything for us and that we would have to contact the manager whom She had never seen or met. We decided that after five days of dealing with our issues that we were just going to check out early. We discovered that the front desk person we had been dealing with had resigned last evening. They indicated that due to the fact that we had booked using third-party Expedia that Expedia would have to give us a refund for the two nights that we did not use the room. We are still awaiting a refund.

    It is right on the beach and reasonably well maintained. The breakfast provided by the hotel wasn't good. We ended up eating outside.

    Location is very good. Hotel is simple but very poorly run. There is no manager on site at any time to complain or the person at the reception has to receive guest, answer calls and be the housekeeper for any issues. Furniture in the rooms and literally falling apart (see pictures) and it's super outdated. One thing it's amazing is the view but aside from that nothing else is good. Breakfast is super simple, old cereal, bagels and muffins. READ THE FINE PRINTS - CHECK OUT IS AT 10:00 AM - AND THERE'S NO WAY AROUND THAT. Stay away from any of the hotels with the name By The Sea. they are all managed the same way.

    Worn out furniture that needs replacing. Room dirty. Over priced for what you get
