Outstanding suits with awesome room service! Greatly appreciated the staff and amenities. Hot Tub and Pool absolutely wonderful. Great views from our suite on the 10th floor. We definitely will go back and enjoy this place situated near the Municipal Wharf and Boardwalk!

No resort fees, however parking is an additional $28 per day. It is an hours drive to Monterey/Carmel.Best beachfront hotel on the coast in that area.
