This is an affordable island among a sea of high end apparel shops, pricey cafes that only take cash and hotels that charge $400 per night and up during the season. Every major investment firm and private bank has an office within walking distance.
The owner and his wife live on site and are happy to help make your stay an enjoyable one. We spent six nights in room 25, a large space with a king bed, modern bathroom, small fridge and a microwave. I suggest you consider asking for that room as it is quiet with two front windows that provide a view of the busy pedestrian traffic on Ocean Drive.
The beach is about 100 yards away and can be easily reached by walking through a large public park across the street. While we were there the park was used for an art festival and for a street concert both of which were well attended.
Parking is free if somewhat limited, but we never had a problem.
There is a convenience store on the street behind the hotel that sells vital supplies like newspapers, beer and lottery tickets.
At the in-season rate of around $150 a night I felt like Red Skelton's "Freddy the Freeloader" camping out on Park Avenue.
