The Elements Hotel & Spa is a "Hybrid Hotel". It was originally a motel and has exterior doors and convenient parking in front of your room. It is located on Spring Street and very convenient to the harbor, shopping and restaurnats. The grounds have some tables with unbrellas and some chairs.
The rooms have been completely remodeled with modern furniture in soothing colors of grays, blacks and browns. Our room had two very nice leather chairs that matched the platform bed. We had a king-size bed with wonderful bedding and pillows. However, there is too much furniture for the room. Between the end of the bed a the armoire, there is perhaps a 12" space to walk between. The bathroom sink area also houses the microwave, coffee pot and a rod for hanging your clothes. It's a rather strange set-up.
However, my reason for a not so high rating is the noise generated by the housekeeping staff. Unfortunately our room was next to the housekeeping staff area (Room 320) and they talked non-stop. They yelled from one area to another to get someones attention. Forget taking a nap, or sleeping in late.
With that said, our stay was not entirely unpleasant and the location is great. The outside of the property does not "match" the interior. While the furniture in the rooms is lovely, it seems out of place. We did not use the spa facilities.
