We stayed here two nights. The hotel was built in 1940, so yes, you're staying at an old building. The lobby was charming with a great Christmas tree and piano. Cristina was sweet and chatty, but a bit disorganized. Our room was on the ground floor. It had a nice comfortable king bed and the shower worked well. At first glance the room seemed clean but there was something weird on the walls near the night stand that should have been wiped off, gross. The furniture is like Goodwill stuff painted white, many years ago. For a small room, they had everything--an iron, ironing board, fridge, microwave, hair dryer. (Bring your own soap, theirs is probably from the dollar store.) Our biggest complaint was the noise in the early hours -- doors slamming over and over, loud talking (Cristina, I think, with customers), and luggage clunking down the stairs. Not good if you want to sleep in. Also it seemed like the A/C was turned off at night as we were very warm when we slept; morning it was okay. You can park for free on Harding but traffic is heavy and moving very fast, so to get to the passenger side of your car can be difficult. We did, however, always find parking close by. We weren't disappointed by the breakfast after reading other TA reviews; coffee and yogurt is fine. The price was right and we probably would have the same noise issues at most hotels on the beach that would have cost twice as much, if not more, so it was all right. We weren't in the room very much, so maybe if we came back we'd ask for a room upstairs.
