Really enjoyed our stay here. We were here in mid-March on business. The staff was absolutely perfect--I can't imagine how they might have been nicer. It is a very busy hotel so expect a crowd at breakfast, but both breakfast and dinner were good. They have a very small parking lot, so about 80% of the parking is valet, which... More

The room had a separate living room/kitchen and bedroom. Very clean and well maintained. I was there for business but I would think this setup... More

Hotel was clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Our room was large enough for 3 adults and 2 kids. Loved that we were located right on the beach and had an oceanfront view. We have nothing bad to say about this hotel. Would stay again and will be recommending to friends.
