Negatives: 1. Booked through 3rd party. Confirmation didn't look right so called hotel immediately. Man I spoke to fixed it and told me he was upgrading room. Manager kept telling me she couldn't upgrade.... I told her this wasn't the first time I'd booked a hotel. 2. Check in

Hi the_wigands! Our apologies that we don't have any shuttle service options. Uber and Lyft would be great options for you to be able to utilize to get to your concert. We can't wait to welcome you to the hotel! -Heather

Hi Angela! There are lots of restaurants close to the hotel! I've listed a few for you. FLORABAMA Have a good time and head to Flora-Bama! It's one of the last Great American Roadhouses - and a local legend. HUB STACEY’S AT THE POINT For a true Southern bar with all the fixin's (and some killer sandwiches), head to Hub Stacey's At The Point. It's a casual, yet sometimes rowdy watering hole and eatery with live music 5 days a week. Happy Hour lasts pretty much all day too! You'll think you've died and gone to good ole Alabama! MOE’S BBQ Wanna pigging out? Head to Moe's BBQ for a truly meaty meal. What could be better than BBQ on the beach? Put on your stretchy pants and head to Moe's!!

"Not all rooms have a view, guest rooms are from the 5th floor up."
"On the ocean side for a balcony and the view."
"Oceanfront or on the west side of the building only. The east side faces another building directly with very little to no views."
"Try getting a room on the top floor"
"Pay less for a west facing balcony suite"
