First of all although you access this from Seawall Blvd.,. there is not view of the beach. Stay at the Courtyard which is on the road and has a view of the Ocean. I was able to do an early check in and the front desk people were great. The room had a full size frig and microwave so if you are staying for a long time these are handy. There was some housekeeping issues such as long black hairs (3) in the tub. Also when I came back to my room after lunch the housekeepers were in the hallway so I grabbed my book from my room and went to the pool while they did my room. I stayed at the pool for over an hour and when I got back to my room the maid had not done anything, since they were still in the hall near my room I asked one of them why they hadn't done my room and she said it was because her pass key wouldn't open my door. I told I would let her in and she asked what I wanted done, well I figured bed making, clean the hairy tub and fresh bath towels and soap were standard so I stated those item. I left and came back in about 20 minutes The hairs were still on the tub. Saturday night I decided to reheat my left overs and when I went to clean my dishes in the dish washer I was surprised to see other dirty dishes in there that I did not use. I reported these issue to the night clerk. The room was quiet and bed comfortable, but the housekeeping and the fact that it did not have a view of the ocean left me with less than a favorable impression of this hotel. Also the pool was small and shared with the courtyard inn. Breakfast was not very extensive. Cold cereal, few baked goods, the juice machine was broken and very limited seating. This is on the far west end of the strip and does not have a good beach access across road so you will have to drive else where to get in the ocean. All the night life is at the east end of the island.
