Not really a balcony

Posted Oct 20, 2014
Room was nice, service great but they advertise a balcony!!! Not at all it's a 2 foot out rail . Just should say what it is in advertisement

Jimmy, I'm sorry that the balcony didn't meet your expectations. We advertise a standing balcony, and that's what the guestrooms have. If you want a full balcony, we offer one, two, and three bedroom suites that have large oceanfront balconies at our sister property, Marigot Beach Suites, which is right next door to the hotel. Thank you, Stephanie

Very good------------but some things to address

Posted Oct 14, 2014
Pros: - nice staff/easy check in and check out - wonderful hallway windows to watch the sunrise - nice rooms - instant access to beach
Cons: - balcony smaller than phone booth - staff at sports bar was horrendous----an hour wait with no apology - food WAY over-priced
Location: Good sports bar (Green Frog) nearby. Library across the street.
My wife and kids and I stayed last weekend in conjunction with a visit to Assateaque. The first problem is that there is a hotel entrance and convention center entrance. That needs to be made more clear to incoming new patrons. The front desk staff was terrific. Check-in and check-out were a breeze and they were very helpful with local recommendations. Pool was excellent. Warm, clean, plenty of towels and chairs. Wife and kids loved it One of the few hotel pools with a deep section. Suitable for lap swimming if at off hours. Elevators were quick and spatious. We were on 15th floor so that was a must. Room grade is a B. While clean and nice decor (high on my wife's priority list), the balcony was a joke. Smaller than a phone booth. No room to sit. AC system was great for temperature control, but louder than a freight train. Scared the kids. TV was very good. Beach access gets an A++. Right out the back door from pool and patio with a nice trail thru the dunes. 2 shower and footwashers as you come back. Dining gets a F. WAY OVERPRICED! Went to sports bar to get appetizers for family. Waited over an hour and never heard a thing. No apologies or anything. Plenty of parking and right on the beach on Coastal highway on north side of town. Less than a mile from any shopping or food needs. For what we paid I guess I can't complain. For a purely beach-oriented visit we'd stay there again.

Very close to the beach, large rooms

Posted Oct 1, 2014
Pros: Room size, pet friendly, cleanliness, great staff
Cons: Maybe new carpets and an updated bathroom would make it feel much more modern.
Location: The hotel is literally on the beach.
We were met at reception by very friendly staff. The room was a great size and even had a balcony. We'd booked a room with 'no view' because the hotel was very busy and that was all that was left, but we were pleasantly surprised to find that we had a great view of the sea from our balcony. The room was very clean and comfortable, just starting to look a little dated in places (wallpaper in a bathroom...).

Beautiful location but horrible hotel

Posted Sep 22, 2014
Pros: location
Cons: everything
The hotel is in desperate need for updates and for proper cleaning. The ceiling in the room had mold; dirty towels were provided as clean, the bathroom was from a different era; the hotel is smelly and full of dogs. The pool is horrible. The price is not correlated with the quality by any means.

better than i thought

Posted Sep 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
We booked this mini vacation last minute and had never been to OC. The hotel was a pleasant surprise in terms of having decent amenities and nicer than your typical Clarion type hotel. The food was very good and the outdoor bar area was great. There were palm trees and a great view of the ocean. It felt very tropical.

Good location for a ridiculous price.

Posted Sep 11, 2014
Paid an outrageous price for a sub-par room and experience. Would have been happier staying at a Motel 6. The AC rattled loudly all night, king sized bed felt like an air mattress, the 'balcony' is big enough for one person at a time to stand, constantly waiting with a growing crowd for an elevator to finally show up. Location and beach access are the only good things I have to say about this place.

Very clean, family and pet friendly place

Posted Sep 10, 2014 on Hotels.com
Stay was great. Pleasantly surprised with the quality and cleanliness of the hotel. It felt much better than a 3 star. Parking was a bit tight but it was Labor day weekend and the hotel was packed to the brim. Staff was friendly and courteous. I saw several guests with pets; the hotel has a fenced-in dog park in the back of the hotel. Only hotel with a big restaurant on the property in about a half-mile both ways on the beach strip.

Close to the beach but far from night life !!

Posted Sep 8, 2014
Pros: Overall the room, the view, staff, and everything was excellent.
Cons: Yes, there needs to be a change with the staff and especially the BARTENDER who works at the outside bar during the day by the pool.
Location: The most popular club and bars weren't that close but there is a 24 hour bus service that is only $3 a ticket per person which is good for 24 hours.
The hotel was great overall. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and very friendly. They would greet you good morning and good night every time someone walks in and out of the hotel front doors. the amenities overall was just OK. I wasn't pleased with the employees that worked at the outside bar by the pool during the day. They weren't friendly at all. The prices of the drinks were reasonable but again the servers and the bartender was not friendly both days I stayed at the hotel.
