Great location! Easy check in. Staff was great , rooms were very clean. The soaps in the bathroom are amazing. The have a roof top terrace with a fire pit which was cool (they also have one on the first floor). I'd stay again!

The third floor ocean front room had a great view, small balcony. The hotel has been recently renovated, and the facilities are nice. Rooms on the west facing side see only construction and street. Recommend asking for ocean front.More
