Great location near the beach. It didn’t have A/c but as long as you on second floor the ocean breeze cool the room. Free breakfast was good and Parking included free near the beach is a major win

This place is awesome for location and the rooms are spotless! Thank the housekeeping staff here as they keep us coming back with it being so clean. They also keep the complimentary breakfast clean and well stocked. The front desk staff is a crap shoot. Very few are nice, accommodating and approachable.
