The thing is, I like this place. The people at check in are nice and it's right on the ocean. But... I'd asked for the room where we'd stayed before, which has a pretty ocean/tree view. When we got here last weekend we were given a "complimentary upgrade" to a really noisy room with a view of the ocean and a power pole. We mentioned the noise and the lady said she'd call someone, but it was there that night and we barely slept, like a bowling ball rolling on the roof it persisted. Next time, I will insist upon the room I requested. I'm sure they will fix the issue on the roof eventually. In their defense, Sandy may have been part of the cause, but still, we're paying to relax. We even wanted to stay two more nights, but checked out early because the noise was unbearable. So 5 stars for last year's stay and 2 stars for this year's. But I wouldn't write it off based on this one experience.
