Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Property in serious need of updating. The carpets were disgusting and I cringed when my kid accidentally touched the carpet on the stairs. Their singular elevator was so small the luggage cart barely fit. Good thing we were only on 2nd floor so we didn’t use elevator much. No ice machines. Bathrooms are dirty. Price is extremely high for what you get… paying for location I guess. But you can’t even see the beach. It’s several blocks away. Front desk staff weren’t very friendly or helpful. The only helpful people were the valets and they are an outsourced company. Oh yeah… an extra $35/night to valet your car was an added extra once we got there.

This place is very old and it shows - feels like it’s from 40’s of last century :) however, the staff does everything to keep it very clean, everything works and the amenities are good! And most importantly - the location! One block from the promenade and one block from the ocean - superb!
