I am going to start with the positives. Ruth, who checked us in, was amazing. Very helpful. I forgot something at the front desk and she brought it to me. When we mentioned where we were going to eat she called the restaurant to confirm they were open. She offered to carry our bags. Very very nice. We were in room 123 second floor 2 queens. The hotel is 2 blocks from the ocean. From the balcony outside our door we had a very nice view of the ocean. Not a full view but it was very nice. Table and 2 chairs outside to take it all in. The room was very large. Table with 4 chairs and the chair upholstery was in excellent condition. Sink was separate from toilet and shower/tub. Plenty of counter space. Tub/shower appeared to be brand new. Shower curtain and liner was in excellent condition. Towels were nice. Water was hot. Dvd player in room with tons of dvds to choose from at office. The negatives are the exterior looks weathered / worn / needs care. Didn't look at all like the white coastal retreat I saw pictured. The majority of car parking is on the street. That wasn't a problem for us but if you like your car right outside your room that's probably not going to happen. The drapes were not hung really well. The toilet seat was pretty thin. I am slender and felt uncomfortable sitting on it. We had to obtain a screwdriver from the office so seat could be tightened . Flush power was concerning. The bathroom sink was a little sad and didn't drain well. The carpet seemed clean but was really low quality and should be changed. The mattresses were okay but nothing special. The room appeared to be clean. But with all the exterior issues going on and the inconsistencies in the room it made me wonder how clean the room really was. We stayed 2 nights. It was an okay experience. My biggest frustration came with what I thought was a misrepresentation of what I expected based on website pictures. The registration area was extremely cluttered and disorganized. The exterior just wasn't in good shape. Which leads one to wonder what is going on inside. Again our stay was okay. Not sure I would return.
