Stayed here for a couple of nights after a recent cruise. Picked the hotel because of the location, view and balconies. We were not disappointed by any of those items. The room however needed some serious TLC. Looks like it may have recently been refurbished, but they did a very rush job in completing it. The carpet was not stretched out and tacked down properly, causing it bunch up against the wall. The sliding glass door leaked when it rained and soaked the carpet too. The bed was fine, no issue there. The bathroom had been painted red, and there was paint drops and smears on the counter that were never cleaned up, the mirror had some strange defect or damage going all the way around it that made it look dirty. The sink was not cleaned from the prior people staying in our room. Toothpaste and hair on the counter and sink..yuck. Other than that the room was clean, fairly quiet and the view gorgeous! If they make some improvements, we would stay there again.
