We were a little wary of staying here, due to some of the other reviews, but I have no complaints regarding our stay. My two friends and I stayed at this hotel Thursday-Sunday this past week to attend a wedding at a nearby hotel.
Check in was smooth and the staff was very nice-- they even let us check in early, which was awesome. I booked it through one of the travel sites and recieved a rate at least $20/night cheaper than neighboring hotels.
The pool area was nice-- the water was a too warm to be refreshing in 90* weather, but I suppose that is probably beyond anyone's control. They do not allow coolers in that area, but staffing there is very lax and guests can BYOB. We had no trouble finding chairs or shaded areas to settle into.
There is bar/restaurant called the Toasted Monkey attached to this hotel. We had lunch there, when we first arrived and the food was great. Reasonable prices and nice, homemade, delicious food. They have live bands and no cover daily for the beach bar side of the restaurant as well.
Rooms were comfortable -- they had nice decor and ceiling fans in addition to working air conditioning, microwave, and mini fridge. No noise complaints or anything- we were on the 5th floor, which seemed a little newer than some of the other ones. Beds were comfortable enough, although the pillows were pretty stiff. I just used one from home, so I reccommend bringing your own!
Beach area was nice and not crowded at all.
As for location, this hotel seemed to be right in the middle of the beachfront hotel strip. There were a lot of bars, restaurants, and a 7/11 all within walking distance. I would definately stay here again.. the rooms were clean and comfortable, location was good, and the price was very reasonable for the area.
