this hotel is in a great location close to the beach, and has nice curb appeal. If you’re not planning on staying for long, and only looking for a place to sleep, then this place is probably fine. Unfortunately our room was pretty disappointing, especially at a $260 price point. While this is reasonable for a queen bed sized room, upon entering it was clear that the price is solely based on location, rather than amenities. The room was extremely outdated, with no table to place our things, no fridge or AC, and absolutely no sound proofing. Additionally, there was no available parking, meaning my wife and I had to park in the street far from our room. For anyone looking at this hotel, be warned that the pictures of the rooms are misleading. If you’re looking for anything other than the most basic of rooming experiences, look elsewhere.

We loved that it was a short 2-minute walk to the beach, and the neighborhood was very nice to talk around in.

Nice location and lovely setting. A bit run down. Curtains in bathroom stained and door handle to bathroom fell off.

Fantastic stay. Great customer service and location. Loved that they brought breakfast to us each morning to avoid crowding at their typical continental breakfast.
