Having been the first time to this area and going on a "short of the notice" trip forjust a night I went to the first hotel I saw by the beach..a decision I regret. While I told the very nice staff that I wanted to stay beachfront(rooms also available with river view or partial ocean view for much cheaper) I expected for $180(off peak) the rooms to be beautiful as well. So mind you I was very disappointed to walk into a basic room that would be equal to a 2 star hotel! The bathroom had a very small stand up shower with a basic showerhead,soap that smelled like ivory soap,and the refrigerator in it. The room was dark with an older style border, I believe dark green carpet,and TERRIBLE beds where I had springs sticking into me all night,and basic cheap blankets.However there was sliding glass doors out onto a shared patio right on the ocean. Having it be shared was a disappointment since I would of loved to enjoy the sound of the ocean all night but with the screen on the sliding doors not having a lock and people walking by it would be to dangerous. Unfortunately I don't think I will be returning unless they remodel all their rooms and bring them to what you pay for besides for the location. I didn't sleep all night due to the beds so in the morning we left early and didn't take advantage of the complimentary breakfast.
