Loved that it was located right across from the beach/pier. Convenient to shopping and restaurants. Everything walkable. Only downside was they charge for parking. It baffles me that a hotel would charge one of their guests to park on the premises in which you are paying to stay.

Overall the property was in great shape. The rooms need a little updating. The lighting in the rooms was not great. Love the outside of the hotel and the fire pits. Great for traveling with your dog. Feels very safe. Convenient to dining options and State Street. Would recommend.

We loved the ambiance at this property and really enjoyed our stay. The front desk staff were kind but the manager wasn’t willing to provide a complimentary upgrade. The facilities are very dated, and the rooms were not sound proof, so we can hear water dripping, kids screaming, and people talking loudly in the morning which disturbed our rest. The location is unbeatable but the property definitely needs a few upgrades for the price we paid.

Perfectly situated hotel with amazing views of the ocean. Loved the fire pits located around the property and the pools were clean and accessible. The rooms were a bit outdated, particularly the bathrooms and the valets could not drive a manual transmission. The bikes were also a nice feature.
