Fabulous location
Hotel is a bit dated but my room was clean and comfortable and the location was fabulous.Can walk to the ocean, restaurants and shops My ocean view was over a parking lot and rooftops but was gorgeous none the less. Pool had a lounge with vending machines, microwave, ice, etc which was nice. Laundry facilities available (just one washer and dryer) was a nice touch with sandy, wet clothes.
