Spent the week after Christmas and over the New Year at the Ocean View Resort. My wife, nine year old daughter, our 70lb dog, and I had a great ocean view room with a comfortable king size bed and queen size "wall bed," also surprisingly comfortable, and well-equipped kitchenette. Beautiful view, very well furnished, and a very helpful, friendly staff. Kudos for the great flat screen TV that enabled me to watch football and ignore the gorgeous view. Our six nights were delightful.
One special mention for the wall bed. Far more comfortable than the usual convertible couch in many hotels and easily put away when it wasn't needed. Our daughter really appreciated it. And when she's not happy, no one is happy.
The only thing that keeps this from being a five star review was the "meh" quality of the restaurant. Frankly, as a frequent business traveler I don't expect much from restaurants in hotels. Relying almost exclusively on travelers who won't be back anytime soon doesn't provide much incentive for outstanding dining. So on that scale the restaurant was perfectly adequate. Just a limited and rather ordinary menu. Furthermore, the wealth of other nearby dining choices meant it wasn't a major problem for us.
I notice that some reviews had negative comments about some of the less expensive rooms. Can't comment on that but I have to say that our ocean view/balcony room was great and considerably less expensive (in the off season) than other comparable hotels on the promenade.
Before closing I should also mention the pool. My daughter loved it and insists that I note it. And our dog reminds me to mention the abundant biscuits available at the front desk. She loved her stay.
