Overall OK experience/room; however, I did not appreciate the customer service when I first checked in. Also, I was not pleased with the fact that I was not able to cancel my reservation prior to checking in as well as the fact that parking is not included with a reservation. Decent stay but would not return.

From the exterior of the hotel, it looks as if the hotel itself is a luxurious, albeit old-timey stay. However, I was disappointed to find the hotel is pretty old and not special on the inside. The rooms are barely a step above a motel.

Great hotel in the mix of everything. Close to restaurants, shopping, beach and pier! It feels a little dated and desperately needs a new design. The paintings and colors throughout the hotel give it a very creepy feeling while you're staying there. Had a great experience but not sure I would stay again in the future.
