Close to Beach and Nightlife, but not 4 stars
The hotel staff were very friendly. The hotel location was a very close to beach, although it states 2 blocks, it was very short two blocks with easy walking distance to Ocean Avenue where all the night life is, but far enough where you can get quiet sleep and not have to here the party until 4am.
I would not rate this a 4 star, possibly 3 at best as there was no coffee maker in rooms, refrigerator, or onsite room service or dining options. The beautiful bar that is pictured was also closed (front stated it was recently bought out by a business across the street. Breakfast was continental which was charged based on what pastry, fruit, or drink you picked, but nothing exciting. They also charged $15 per night resort fee, which gets you beach towels and two chairs at the beach, no umbrella (however if you go to the beach, they charge $8 per chair for non hotel guest). The use of the chair is from 9-5, and with check in at 4pm and checkout by noon, you waste a day and it becomes a forced charge.
