I took my sister as a birthday present to this hotel for a Thurs/Fri night stay. Thurs was lovely, our balcony looked over the courtyard for the resort and it was QUIET! Friday, a group of what I will assume bachlorettes moved into the hallway we were in, and continuously made noise until 2am. My sister and I both work jobs where we are in bed by 8:30 pm and wake around 5am, so this made for a very disruptive night. I'm all for having a good time, but I wish I had called the front desk by 10pm and said something.
While the location and setting are lovely, I can see that this hotel gets it's fair share of rowdy crowds. If that's what you are into, then go for it. If you are looking for tranquility and relaxation, go somewhere else.
The only perk about staying here is that it's cheapest out of all the hotel that's close to the beach. The room is small and you only get one bar of soap so make sure you bring shampoo and conditioner. The towel feels cheap and hard, feels like it's scratching my skin when I use it. The bed is kind of hard and my neck hurt in the morning when I wake up. Over all it wasn't like most hotel I stayed in and like I said, the only perk was that it's across from the beach.

The hotel was very helpful in accommodating an early check-in for me. I had a wedding that I needed to be at by 2:00 p.m and the hotel made sure my room was ready by 1:00, so that I could check in and change into my clothing. That was awesome!
I wasn't a fan of the flooring in the hotel, in my room it was kinda like a bamboo mat (even in the bathroom). I am kinda a germ-a-phobe, and I know there is no way to clean/sanitize this surface. It also didn't feel very good on your feet.

"Location, location, location (zoo, beach); otherwise a clear 2-star"
Literally walking distance to the zoo, the beach, bike rental sites, etc. Acceptable room, although the bathroom heater hasn't worked in years, and the bedroom heater is kinda puny. Staff are nice, absent such niceties as room refrigerator or hair dryer. Ya gets what ya pays for, and it is clearly less expensive than other sites in the area (although a Motel 6 is nearby, which I didn't check out. Even I have some standards.)
