We had a great stay. The property is very well maintained. The room was very clean, no sign of sand like you sometimes see in cheaper places on the beach.
The location is great. It's right on the beach, although rooms don't really have a great view because of the seawall\berm that blocks the view for just about any hotel. Easy walking distance to downtown, but far enough away that driving in and out is much easier.
The room we stayed in (#36) was a nice suite with kitchenette and cavernous bathroom but had a few very minor issues. The couch had stains on it. One of the in-window blinds wouldn't go all the way down and staff just taped a piece of plastic to the door instead of actually fixing it. The shower head wouldn't switch modes. The room had a TV in the bedroom and the common area, but both were CRT's, not larger flat-panels.
Water pressure was excellent. The Internet seemed slightly above average for speed and was easy to configure.
The facility has a pool. However, they also allow you to use the brand new pool\hot tub of it's sister hotel, Waves. The pool at Waves is brand new and rather nice, but even the pool right at the Sea View was nice too. Coin operated laundry is available at Waves as well.
Overall we were very satisfied. The facility was clean and well staffed. I only gave this facility 4/5 because of both the minor condition issues and the price. While it was close to perfection, I expected a little more for the price I paid.
