  • Disliked: Cleanliness

Location was nice. I had an ocean front room with a nice balcony with just a short walk to the beach.however upon entering the room the first thing we notice is that the pillow cases were dirty, as I called and requested new pillowcases they asked me how many and I said for both beds they dropped off pillowcases while I stepped out and they didn't even bring enough pillow cases for both beds as I pulled back the covers to the bed I noticed there was sand all over the sheets. I understand some sand on the floor because it's kind of hard being on beach property and not seeing sand but to have it on the sheets when you pull the covers back made me feel as if maybe they weren't changed. Due to covid19 reasons I guess they are not serving their normal buffet so you line up for a bagged breakfast which consists of a muffin a small bottle of water and an apple that was brown when you bit inside of it I don't understand why they couldn't just plate and bag a real breakfast which I have seen other places do.however their price was okay The location was good so if you don't mind a room that's not that clean I guess it's okay.

  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

It wasn’t horrible. I’ve seen worse. I did clean my room myself but that’s bc this virus and life in general has me extra cleaning these days. However the floor did need to be swept the day we entered the room. We were told housekeeping didn’t enter the rooms unless asked while we were there. So we just borrowed a broom. No worries. Other than than the floor the room was good. It was cool. The bed slept good. The bagged breakfast was acceptable due to the current coronavirus state. When we called for extra blankets they came. Not much wait. The elevators did break but there were 3 and one worked. And a set of stairs that weren’t bad. The hallway was tiny. But well it is what it is. Overall not a bad place to stay. Close to the pier too if you like the pier and all

The marketing was misleading. We understand that due to the pandemic some things may be changed but we really expected to be receiving full breakfast even in packed meals to say the least or might have been even better to inform us before check in that we didn’t have any choice other than the fruit, muffin, single biscuit and a 237 ml bottled water. Their website doesn’t even mention any about this change and we are very disappointed. Some toilettries were even missing that we needed to call the front desk to ask for them. The room was not very clean, too. Especially the bathroom.
