Although I was so tired I slept through the afternoon of my check-in, I was accommodated with an early check-in after having lunch. Hotel is so conveniently located to so many restaurants and "hang outs".

It’s an older hotel right on ocean drive which was surrounded by lots of great food and entertainment. The only issue was they did not provide any soap in our bathroom and we booked for 3 people and they had only towels for two. Most places carry at least 3-4 towels.

The employees there were personable and extremely helpful and nice. The fact that we had a roof top deck to ourselves overlooking the ocean was AMAZING! I’m definitely planning on another trip and staying at the same hotel/room.
