One thing we had a problem with was the clock on the wall. It was producing a very loud clicking noise which was interfering with sleep. We finally took the clock down and took out the battery. Of course, we put it back in place before we left. Another minor issue was the blinds next to the front door and window. When they were closed, they still let in light from the second story unit across from us. Next time I will travel with a sleep mask (smile). We loved the location and friendly staff.

My daughter and husband stayed on the second floor. Beautiful unit. Great setup. Fireplace, mini refrigerator. Parking was included on this unit. If you stay here, get a unit upstairs. Staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. Great location near Ocean Ave.,

Well first off the exterior is really cute. Well taken care of. As I have read, the interior is dated and could use remodeling. There was a musky smell when we first arrived. All these things I was expecting and was okay with. What surprised me was how you could hear people walking and talking in the unit above us. I had a sound machine and still hurt footsteps till after 12:00 midnight. That was the first night. After that I got ear plugs and everything was fine. The location is terrific. Close to Ocean Ave. The staff was as friendly and accommodating as you can get. They were great! Construction is going on next door, but the thanksgiving week we went, they were shutdown. This is a dog friendly hotel. That’s a plus. Not sure yet if we’ll return. Would like to get something upstairs if possible with a dog. Just be prepared ahead of time. Bring earplugs and a sound machine. Great parking when you include it with your room.
