Travelled with family
Disliked: Staff & service
My daughter has long hair , I can’t find any in my room and they can’t support any dryer. My daughter had to keep wet very long hair after we left the hotel. I ask 3 times , no one can’t support any, the boss too. I felt so bad for my daughter, she didn’t get cold luckily, a woman from front desk was mean.

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
All the staff were amazing. Really helpful and nice. We got there really early and ask to check in, They called us as soon as room was available. Valet was reasonable and easy. Rooms are decent size. A little outdated but Clean as can be. Bed is ok. Location is excellent!! Price is excellent. The only con is, rooms are thin. We heard our upstairs neighbor walking around all night and early morning. We heard their conversations through the vent.

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
It is very close to the pier. The facility is outdated, almost antique. It has a musty smell. The street noise is loud. The front desk is not friendly. No amenities at all.
