"We had three rooms on the 2nd floor, #208, #209, #210, fine locations."
"Don't even waste your time with this hotel. There aren't enough showers in the world to make you feel clean after leaving here."
"No ocean views so all rooms are similar in regards to that"
"if you have children stay on the first or 2nd FL as there is no elevator."
"Ask for a top floor to avoid hearing noises above, below and next to you"
