My son was staying at a fancier hotel 2.5 blocks west of the Beach View (hence, further from the beach) that cost over $100 more per night, and it was difficult not to compare the two. I liked the Beach View better - much friendlier. Although it doesn't appear to be set in stone, the general policy seems to be that when you arrive (which was noon for me), if there is a free parking place, you can pick up your permit to park your car early. My room was also clean and available, so they allowed me to check in. Although their general policy is a minimal two-night stay, I checked the reservations online and found a single date sandwiched between two longer stays so they were happy to let me stay for that one night. Their policy for the date you are checking out is that as long as you check out by 11:00 am, you can keep your car in the lot until 2:00 pm as long as you leave them your car key and cell phone number. The parking spots are not assigned by number or anything. They also have a shower available for guests who have checked out. My son's hotel instead charged a $9 per day parking fee, plus they had in their contract that if an unregistered guest was found visiting your room, you would be charged a $200 fine. Seriously?! I can't even wait on their porch while they are finishing getting ready?! No such wording on the contract at the Beach View.
Yes, you can hear the screaming kids on the rides at the Fun House next door, but not after 11 pm, and yes, you can hear the beach cleaners and delivery trucks in the early hours, but this is just part of the "beach" experience. You just can't beat having your room so close to the beach that it is basically in your back yard.
