Across the street from the Beach and Pier. $30 Valet parking is the only option as street parking is permitted or hourly. Despite empty lots of Valet Only parking spaces, we had to park blocks away and move the car.

The hotel is very nice and the location is great, but the bathroom is too small and does not provide a pleasant bath. Another point is the cost of parking ($30 per night), which I consider really abusive

The walls and ceilings are thin and you can hear every footstep and conversation from your neighbors above you and next door to you. The rooms are old and dated with very worn furniture.

Your policy of not assigning a room number is very bad customer service. You need to change this asap. I wanted a garden view instead I got assigned near a second floor fire pit. I was not told the building had no elevators. no elevators. The outdoor staircase is long and steep. My room was dimly lit even with all the lights on.

I upgraded for an ocean view room but couldn’t leave the curtains open because there was a walkway in front of our room so we couldn’t see the ocean nor even if we left the curtains open could we see the ocean from the bed-that was disappointing. we were only there for one night and that was the whole point.
