This hotel was not as good as the pictures & reviews.
1) Located beside a 24 hour grocery store.
2) Rooms facing inward are relatively quiet. (Rooms facing the street are noiser.)
3) Includes breakfast. (They serve eggs but there is never anyone there to make them- they are watching TV at the bar. Also, once the food is gone, they do not replenish it!!)
4) 2 blocks from the beach!
1) The interior is much older than it appears in the photos.
2) When we had our sheets changed, they took our duvets & replaced with only fleece blankets.
3) Under contruction. Hammering & drilling at 9am. Because of this, it seemed everyone was staying on our floor!
4) Pool area is very poorly represented in the photos. The bar was closed over with a black tarp.
