Unfortunately, I chose the "lowest price" option from my options for a business trip. It was (thankfully!) a short, overnight trip. I reference "lowest price" as it appeared to be cheaper in comparison to the other hotels / resorts in the area, but when I arrived and was surprised with an $18 / day valet rate the cost differential was nil.
The room had a full kitchen, but the windows were very thin, which made the sound of the boats' horns signaling to the drawbridge operator to open the bridge resonate through the room. Seemingly every 10 minutes. For at least 4 hours.
The a/c worked well in the room. But, the a/c in the hallway was not able to keep up. Due to this, there was a nice, slimey film on the tile floor by the elevators.
The bathroom was adequate. If you are into cleanliness, it wouldn't be your place of choice as there was some lovely black mold growing in the top corner of the bathtub / shower.
I didn't walk into the restaurant (it appeared closed), but I did get a drink in the bar. The staff was nice, but the bar smelled of sweat and dirty mop water. A drunk at the end of the bar was singing "Jeremy" by Pearl Jam lending a decent ambience. I settled in for a short time sipping my vodka and water, but the cost of the drink (read: it was over $10!) stank worse than the facility.
I sought to find a restaurant in close proximity, but nothing was within a mile or so. So, if you like to walk to find food this is not your place.
Okay, yes, it's on the beach. If you need a place to stay on the beach and don't need rest for a busy work day, then it's perfect.
If you plan to cook your own meals and have a car and don't mind paying for valet, it's excellent. However, getting to a place to buy food to cook might be difficult without a car, and that will require multiple tip payments to the valet.
