Fantastic location - in the middle of nightlife and very close to the beach. Nice and accommodating staff. Our room 325 was in the back, it was a corner room away from street noise - highly recommended! Good hot breakfast with several selections. When we checked in elevator wasn’t working, but staff offered assistance to get our bags to the room. The hotel is rather old, and could use some renovation, but it’s somewhat offset by interesting decor. Room is rather small, and not enough lighting. One light didn’t work, we highlighted this to the staff but no actions were taken. Electric outlets were worn out, barely holding plugs. Overall impression is that the property needs some maintenance, but is not getting it. No fan in the bathroom, but you can open a small window for ventilation. It helped us in November, but I’m not sure how it would work in summer heat. Water bottles in the room for purchase - that caught us at surprise. One of the bottles was half open - looks like previous guests were surprised as well (wanted to drink but stopped half way when they saw $3 sticker on it).

Wonderful, cute hotel right on the beach. CVS next door was very convenient. Bathroom was small and no fan but opening the window kept it cool enough. Food at The Place was also great. On weekends there’s a farmer’s market in the little park across the street. Elevator was broken and our room was on the fifth floor so we got our steps in and staff was super helpful and carried our bags up when we arrived. The building is older but very clean. Great place to stay if you want to be close to lots of restaurants and bars!
