This hotel is good for couples as well as family. Very comfortable beds with a jacuzzi available which was awesome after a long day of sight seeing. We had a great time over Thanksgiving weekend. The beach is very close by and the hotel is in a convenient location without the historical downtown crowd. But close enough to enjoy the... More

The most comfortable pillow top bed I've slept in! The room was large, clean and nicely decorated. Coffee and tea, microwave and fridge. Close to beach, short drive to sights. Lots of restaurants nearby. Wonderful staff.

The lobby and amenities were good and the general ambiance of the property was pleasing. The room was well furnished. There was a large Jacuzzi tub in the sleeping area, which was interesting. The room was spacious and comfortable. On the down side, we were supposed to have an ocean view but the double pane windows were continuously fogged and... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights here over Veterans Day weekend. The first impression was the very pleasant greeting from Sterling at the front desk. The Mediterranean Style of the Hotel was very nice. We were in Room 316, a corner suite with a jacuzzi. It was immaculately clean and very inviting upon entry. The bed was perfect for... More

It was a nice stay on first floor except for noisy people in room next to us. Had to wear ear plugs to get any sleep. If we had stayed a third night I would have complained and requested another room.

Not exactly on the beach but so close! Decor is quaint and employees at the desk were welcoming. Check in and out went smoothly. Although I didn't eat at the restaurant there is one located in the building. Showers were roomy. Keurig inthe room with tea and coffees. Bed were super comfy. I would stay here again!
