The hotel is perfectly located. The view from our balcony was awesome. And, there's nothing like that wonderful Hilton bedding to make you feel absolutely wonderful! I never have to guess about the quality of the room or the service.

We paid a lot of money for this hotel. When we first arrived, we believed this to be the perfect hotel. Our room was on an upper floor overlooking the beach. The room was very clean, the view, fantastic. However, every night we were there we were awakened after midnight by rude guests being loud at the outdoor bar run by the hotel pool on the deck. We were wondering why a hotel would put the bar so close to guest rooms facing the pool / beach. Yet, we were at the other end of the building and were still awakened. One afternoon we decided to try to nap and could not due to construction and hotel maintenance using a drill in the hallway. Also we were very disappointed by the breakfast selection. The rubbery eggs and greasy sausage were the only hot entrees the first morning (other than the standard make-your-own waffles and oatmeal). The 2nd morning was a bit better with scrambled eggs and sausage patties. The third morning was a repeat of the first, so we went on our way. For the hundreds of dollars a night, we were hoping for a better breakfast and some rest.

Room Tip: Higher floors facing the beach, and stay away from the bar end of things if you want a chance to sleep...

Hello Janet G,

First, thank you for taking the time to write a review about our hotel! We value all of our guests comments about their stay because we want our potential guests to know exactly what we offer and provide. We will never claim to be perfect as we are all human but I do apologize for the noise down at the bar. The bar at the hotel closes at 10pm but there is a bar down on the boardwalk that stays open till 2am. We have worked with the bar to keep the noise down. As for the breakfast, we appreciate the input and will do our best to rotate food options each day. Our number one goal is to offer a great product and top of the line service and I'm very sorry you did not feel we offered that during your stay. If you would like to speak further about anything else, please feel free to contact me.

Sincerely,
Lance Fischer
General Manager

The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly. The room was clean and had an amazing view. However, we were quite disappointed with the noise. The walls are rather thing. And the is a club/bar to the lower right. You could hear/feel the bass from the music, which made it difficult to sleep.

This hotel was an unexpected change of plans, booked the same day, and it was a great find! It was clean and new, very walkable to nearby shops and restaurants, and had an excellent breakfast. The common area by the lobby worked well for drinks and games too.

My only corrective feedback would be on the parking: I booked this property over a different one that charged for parking, only to learn on arrival that the hotel distributes one parking pass per room. I would recommend making this information more obvious to guests before they book, and also mentioning to guests with multiple vehicles about the options for city parking. When we were there, the parking was actually free offseason, but I thought it was strange the front desk staff didn't readily offer this information.

With parking clarifications, I would wholeheartedly recommend this property, its staff, and its location. Thank you for a wonderful mini-holiday!

Hello ecellobrill,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a great review of our hotel!! We were very happy to have you all stay with us and we hope you will come back and see us again. We are aware of the parking on our property and have recently gotten another parking lot for over flow. We have also worked with the front desk about informing our guest about the free offseason parking. Thank you again for all the input and have a great day!!

The room was spacious and clean. The balcony was great with the hotel right on the ocean front. The balcony sliding door kept the wind noise out when closed making for a quiet sleep. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only downside is the limited parking at the hotel.
