    The owner was on site and obviously works hard to make sure the place is clean and in good order. Every person we encountered on staff was helpful and friendly. Great view of the beach and super convenient to the marathon start. Great experience.

    There are elevators and I believe they have certain rooms that are accessible. Worth a call to the hotel.
