    Location is just a few yards away from the beach. They have a bar and restaurant just outside which has a great menu. Rooms are comfortable and very spacious. We enjoy our stay because every other guest there is polite and they are just there to relax. We do not like to much racket when we travel.

    It seems payment is pre-authorized way before you book a room. Then they charge you before you go into the room not after your stay. The menu is also a bit expensive.

    The closeness to the beach and cafe.

    PARKING!!! Awful parking; not enough parking spots for us the PAYING guests. You all should designate a separate parking area for non-guests-cafe customers, because some don't just stay to eat, they'll park and stay all day at the beach. Large vehicles (i.e trucks w/ big tires and/or double rear wheels) should also have a designated area for them because some take up to 2 spots. Pool was dirty, this our second time there. Leaves are falling and it needs to be skimmed and/or vacuumed more frequently.

    The location is perfect. When we checked in the staff member was very friendly. Upon opening the door to the room we were met with the scent of cleanliness. The room was very neat with all of the necessary toiletries in place. The bed was comfortable enough to easily fall asleep. The property is located right on the beach with a stroller/cart friendly beach access trail. It has a small pool which was mostly vacant, even with the hotel at capacity (the beach is that close). The restaurant and bar serve up delicious drinks and food, so good that we only ate at their restaurant during our two night stay. For people seeking adult beverages a liquor store is a short 2-3 block walk away on the main strip.

    Parking is very tight. Be prepared to do some careful maneuvering especially if you drive a bigger vehicle.
