This hotel is marketed as a non smoking hotel, yet when we arrived we found out that the hotel allows guests to smoke on the balcony of each room. So my wife and I would have our balcony door open to listen to the sound of the ocean and feel the ocean breeze only to start smelling cigarette smoke from others smoking on the balcony of other rooms. The smoke traveled then right into our room from the outside, so we would have to close the door or breath cigarette smoke. When we checked in, the room smelled of cigarette smoke. There is no parking here, four or five separate remote lots that you have to drive around and try to find parking every time you leave and come back. There is one elevator and the lobby is so small only two people can stand waiting for the elevator at any given time. The maid must've left a dirty rag on the back of the toilet when we arrived plus there was hair in the bathroom sink. My wife went and bought sanitizing wipes and we wiped down the room and restroom. We also bought Lysol spray to sanitize the room surfaces to try and get rid of the awful smells. There were clothes dryer vents right above our heads at the floor elevator "lobby" so while you were waiting for the elevator, you could feel heat and smell clothes drying. The place looks very dated. There is no good place to load and unload your luggage. The parking available is so tight that my truck had a very hard time driving into the small area to load and unload our luggage. So small that I had to leave my wife down at the truck to make sure no one needed to exit while we were taking our bags to the room. We will not stay here again. There are so many more better quality hotels to stay in this area that this one is very easy to pass by when looking for somewhere to stay.
