Chlorine overdose!
Water was horrible! Reeked of chlorine, totally undrinkable. Likewise, sheets were so bleached we had to sleep with the slider open to tolerate the toxic smell Asked for late checkout, but they said it would cost $50 extra! Was off-peak, hotel lot only 1/2 full. Beachfront/ pool gorgeous, though. Breathtaking sunrise with bird’s dawn chorus

Fabulous place!
This was a fabulous hotel. We were in a room on the 7th floor & had a perfect view of the ocean. We didn’t have a balcony but the big window opened & we could sit in front of it & looking & listening to the waves. We even left it open all night to hear the waves crash in. Very nice place, we will definitely be back!

4/10 Fair

The hotel is very outdated and has paper thin wall, you can hear the elevator and anyone walking near your door. The shower kept dripping loudly all throughout our stay and since the walls are so thin you could hear the drip in the bedroom. The photos on the website are not on par with the actual hotel, the pictures are very misleading.

Worth the price
Excellent location and grounds. Only one elevator was working which caused delays. Mattresses were old but okay. The lack of electrical outlets was confounding--No outlets near the beds or the desk. Nice hotel that needs updating but worth the price.
