We chose this hotel for a 3 night stay after 9 nights spread between NYC and Boston and a further 3 weeks in travelling around Florida in October 2013. Apologies for the delay but I have just retrieved my notes.
Reasons for the choice included it was well reviewed on TA, it had free on-street parking, it was close to beach (just across the street), it had a pool plus there are a range of restaurants close-by. Another plus was that it has on-site clothes washing facilities. The one bedroom apartment offered decent accommodation with well equipped kitchen at a reasonable price
The hotel is built like a horseshoe around the pool with a generous sitting area. The buildings are 2 storeyed with access from a communal landing. There are chairs outside each room.
We stayed in room 202 which was an upstairs room on the shady side of the hotel which meant it was not only cooler but the lack sun meant we could sit outside all day. The pool was welcoming and very refreshing.
The hotel is located at quiet end of town so no noise problems from the street
The hotel provides beach gear - parasol towels chairs + trolley - so no problems going to the beach. There are good restaurants about 10-15 minutes walk away. The restaurants are very busy up to about 8.15 and then clear out
Saturday night was interesting - some people arrived who we're attending a wedding and there was multiple occupancy of some rooms. Unfortunately once the wedding was over these people decided to go to the bar next door to continue the party and with more drink consideration for others disappeared and the party transferred to the RNB at around midnight. Following complaints to management the noise fell silent quite quickly.
Without Saturday night the RNB did what it said on the tin.
