Let me start by saying nowhere on their webpage do they claim to be a 5 star resort. What they do say is they are a clean, convenient, friendly place to go if you want to be within a 10 minute walking distance to everything. Which they definately are!
This is a place you'd stop into after driving for many hours and just wanted to shower and sleep before moving on.
That being said, we had an efficiency room which was very, very clean, beds were fresh and the bathroom was spotless. There was a mini fridge, a microwave and a ceiling fan which made it very convenient if we had chosen to pick up something for dinner and bring it back to the room.
If you leave the hotel and walk right you come into Short Sands beach. Besides the beach there are several streets you can walk up and down and pick up anything from cupcakes and fried dough to somewhat high end bottles of wine, and everything in between. Food, amusements like skiball and bowling, etc. You can also walk right up to the entrance of Yorks Wild Kingdom.
Leave the hotel and walk left it takes you to Long Sands beach. This doesn't have the 'carnival' feeling like Short Sands but there are also several places to shop and a few more sit down restaruants to eat. There are also general stores at both locations in case you forget a necessity or just want to pick up some drinks for your room.
All in all, if you are looking for a hotel with room service and a concierge, this isn't your type of place, but if you want a clean, safe place close to everything then maybe you should give it a try.
