We've stayed at the Oceanfront before and found it acceptable, but with a couple small issues--mostly in attention to details relating to the cleanliness of the place.
We again found it overall pleasant. We were greeted pleasantly and booked in with no problems. We noted a couple issues in the bathroom, nothing that a good scrubbing with some attention to the corners wouldn't cure. Other than that the room was good, unlike the last time when there was some dust, that was obviously old, hanging in the room. Not so this time.
The pool also lacks attention to some detail. We saw the maintenance man checking the chemistry, so that's a good thing, but the same items remained on the floor of the pool area for over 36 hours! Does anyone look? Other than that, the pool is generally well maintained and kept pretty clean--even on what had been a very busy weekend.
I suspect that much of what is lacking is the result of the class of help they can get. Our housekeeper did half a job with our room, making the bed and taking the dirty towels; but forgot to replace the towels. That would be the same housekeeping crew that doesn't notice the dust or the accumulation of crud in the corners of the bathroom floor. It's all that attention to detail.
In spite of that, it's a great value and we'll use it again. They hotel is undergoing some maintenance work--tiles being replaced, carpeting redone on some floors--so it's obvious that management does want to keep it in decent shape.
