My family and I spent a few nights at Snooze (it was still called Ocean Holiday Motel at the time) before going on a cruise. The first night I stayed in Room 402 which was renovated and clean with a king bed, fridge and flat screen TV. The only drawback was the lack of a view (you either see the corridor or the elevator).
The second night we rented Suites 301 and 401. These rooms are the best option as they are huge (roughly 400 sq ft) with large windows and a direct ocean views. They also have a sofa, and a kitchenette with a microwave, fridge and coffee maker. This is useful as there are not that many breakfast options around. There is a CVS within walking distance where you can buy some grocery staples.
All the units have been renovated with predominantly IKEA furniture, giving the rooms a sleek and simple look.
The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. They will provide you with free towels and beach chairs and help you call a taxi or print your boarding passes.
The biggest selling feature is really the price and location. It is directly across from the ocean and right on the strip where all the restaurants and shops are located. Consider that the Ritz Carlton is only 2 blocks away and is probably triple the price.
There's not much more to say that hasn't already been said in other reviews. If your expectations are for a hotel with lots of amenities, you will likely be disappointed. But if you want a clean place in a great location with responsive staff at a reasonable price, then it's a good choice. But try and get the 01 oceanfront suites.
Only two things that were not great during our stay were that the elevator is very small, and there was a rowdy bunch of guests that kept us awake until the early hours. It would have been nice to have been able to ask reception to call the room and tell them to keep noise down.
