August stay with family. Room photos will be uploaded to validate my comments.
The bad: Cramped bathroom. Broken outlets, worn carpet, peeled wallpaper, grime and crud in every corner, sticky dirty tables, over-chlorinated pool, mold spots on ceiling (from floor above bathroom floods no doubt). No microwaves in hotel. Internet WiFi poor signal, horrible bandwidth, no hardwired connection. About 20 TV channels, one HBO. Even though they had armed police/security roving the parking lots, one vehicle was broken into parked right against the sidewalk in plain view of front desk. Not hotels fault. Keep anything worth stealing out of vehicle. Don't leave empty GPS mounts in plain view.
Its a shame that only a good detail cleaning or cosmetic makeover in the rooms would make this a really nice place.
The good: Reasonable price for beach front balconies throughout. Hotel responded to service requests immediately. Parking OK, with additional parking across street in open lot and also dedicated 4 floor garage (no elevator). Plenty elevators in hotel. Quiet rooms. Fridge was cold. Only one night stay is charged at booking, with a reasonable cancellation policy.
