Wasn’t pleased with front desk check-in. I had a few questions and two employees couldn’t answer them. It’s off-season yet they charged a “resort” fee each day we were there. I asked what the fee was for and they said it was for beach chairs and towels for the beach. Perplexed, I questioned this stating that it’s 50 degrees and rainy and off-season. Their answer was “well we still charge the resort fee.” No further explanation. We arrived on Friday and stayed until Sunday. The day we arrived there was trash piled up next to a room on our floor. When we came back after dinner, the trash and food was still there. When we woke up the next day, still there. When we came back Saturday night, trash was still there with even more trash and food. I called the front desk and let them know the trash was building up in the hallway and the young lady was very receptive and apologetic. She assured me that she will take care of it. On Sunday morning, trash was still there, smelly and just disgusting. I was horrified. The entire hallway smelled of old food and trash. When I checked out the front manager hesitantly apologized after I told him about the trash and smell being there all weekend. He said well we had a wedding here this weekend so we had to take the cleaning staff to the other side. To me, that is no excuse. For the amount of money We spent for the weekend to stay there, I was expecting a hotel a bit more clean, updated, and employees more receptive and helpful. Awful!

The hotel was really nice-however a wedding or something was going on and people were very drunk and loud. The walls were paper thin and from 12AM to 4AM people were screaming in the halls by our room all night trying to fight each other and just being obnoxious. Not necessarily sure it’s the hotels fault but I complained and no one did anything. I get you want to have fun, but some of us have kids or just want sleep it was all night though which really ruined the trip

We stayed here with expectations that this was an amazing hotel from reviews. I’m not sure how our room was sanitized, nothing was cleaning or wiped down. The walls are so thin you can hear your neighbors talking in the balcony at 6:30am! We could hear every toilet flush from every room around ours. The rooms are not very well insulated at, all we smelt was our neighbors weed and cigarettes!!!

Nice its ok will be back in summer beutiful area

Property was clean and well maintained. Restaurant at the hotel was clean and has a beautiful view of the ocean

A little run down but clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. Our view of the ocean was great. Drank coffee on the balcony watching the waves in the morning.

B- hotel in an A location. Staff was very helpful however, the front desk rarely had a mask on. Beer can left on my deck and item still in the fridge from the previous occupants still there when I arrived. I picked this place mainly on location and the fact it had a pool. The pool area was awful and the water was disgusting. I paid $435 on a random Wednesday...I’d say it should have been more like $200. That being said, the staff was great and I loved the location. Unfortunately, I would not stay against at that price.

Room was clean, bed very comfortable. Staff was very accommodating during check in

The bar staff was wonderful especially Zoe. However our room was less than clean and we paid a $50 parking fee for our car to be parked outside in a public parking lot.

The room was comfortable and clean, the balcony was next to the HVAC unit and it was noisy hard to enjoy the view.

walkable to beach,restaurants, shops no in room safe

Restaurant food in cafe poorly cooked. Hidden fees such as $15 destination fee. Would not use this property again

Property was clean and well kept very modern. The indoor pool was great as it rained for a bit and it was something for the kids to do
