I have to say that the room was visually pleasant and quite clean. I enjoyed the fridge, microwave, and coffee-maker. Didn't mind the old TV at all, given the large number of stations that were available (although I will say that not everything was controllable via remote control -- they need to rectify that). LOVED the ocean view and patios, as well as the neighboring cemetery, which is an interesting, historic landmark.
Now, on to a few of the down sides. The mattress on my bed was hard as a rock -- very uncomfortable. The screen on my door was badly torn -- something noticed by staff, but there was no effort to actually rectify the problem (nor did I ask -- but I shouldn't have had to). At one point as well, the owner (I believe it was the owner) saw me going into the room with some sand on my feet and more or less scolded me for not using the hose at the entry of the parking area, indicating that sand is why the plumbing is getting clogged. First of all, I hadn't been informed about a hose at the base of the parking area. Second, I didn't know there were any plumbing issues. And finally, I can think of better ways to address a guest. The gentleman seemed needlessly exasperated (I suspect it was misdirected exasperation, but nonetheless, not a great way to speak with someone).
Having pointed out these negatives, I'd still go back! The location and views are great, the room was fine, and the price was very competitive relative to similar places along the main drag. I do think that the owner tries to run a decent business and work on improving problems. Based on my interaction with him that day, I'd say that perhaps he was in need of a few days off!
