I was really pleased with the hotel's condition. I was expecting it to be a little run-down, but the room was very nice. I didn't reserve oceanfront but received it and having a balcony made a big difference. The room had enough space to not feel too cramped - two beds, a larger table with two chairs, big closet, and room for a rollaway bed or room for kids to play. The bathroom was a little older and is on the small side, but was clean. Morning breakfast is a nice bonus. Beach access is on the second floor and you walk down stairs to the beach, so we had to carry our wheeled beach cart down the steps - not a big deal but something to consider. The hotel has a great deck area with plenty of chairs. We didn't use the pool, but it looked nice as well. Darlene on staff is just wonderful - we saw her several times at breakfast and she was always cheerful, had local stories and advice for things to do, and was great overall. The beach in front of the hotel is perfect and was never crowded. It's a short walk to the pier and while we drove to dinners, you could walk or bike to a few restaurants via a nice pedestrian path.
