"The hotel was clean and nice, great customer service!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I will definitely come back fir a stay in this hotel, but would be nice if the room had a mini fridge and small microwave in it for storing and heating up food fir our boys. Overall it was amazing and clean! Live the outdoor fire pit! So beautiful and easy access to the Beach!

"I would give it a four (very good) BUT."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Great location! Very clean. The actual bed was comfy. Those three things would have pushed it to "very good" BUT we were in room #225. There definitely is NOT enough natural light but the biggest issue was that room had a loud obvious hum and the floor vibrated. I spoke to the front desk. There were no other King rooms to move us to except the Accessible room that was on the street in the other building and the patio was not enclosed at all. We decided to stay in that room but honestly, for the amount we paid, that room was mediocre in style. Shower was updated but pretty much everything else was dated. The room was a decent size and it was clean though. We have stayed in many hotels around the world and many in Hawaii and, again, the amount we paid, with no view, hardly any natural light. that room was not worth it. Next time, we will book during the weekday and get an ocean view. I hear the prices are lower then.
