Very satisfying

Upon arrival we were offered a room upgrade (at a cost) to an ocean view room since they weren’t full. I was told the room we switched from had just been renovated but the ocean view room was one of the nicest they had so I went for it. The view was the only aspect that was amazing. We couldn’t easily access an outlet to charge our phones (bedsides lamps we plugged in far behind the heavy bed), balcony furniture was covered in dirt and there was no desk to conduct a Zoom meeting. Maybe the room will be worth the extra $ after renovation.

Great location and COVID-19 controlled, we were pleased with the accommodation information on surrounding events and activities.

We checked in for a one night stay, attending a local wedding. The front desk staff was overwhelmed with people checking in. Once we checked in, they directed us to the furthest entrance to the building of our hotel room. Neither key worked, so I had to wait in another line at the front desk, to secure working keys. Once we returned to the hotel from the wedding, there were no parking spots. The valet suggested we leave the property, to park our specialty car in the next lot. We were very concerned about the lack of security, packed up our room, and drove 2 hours home, where our car would be safe. Unfortunately, the hotel had a non-refundable policy, so we paid for a room we did not stay in. An overall disappointing experience, and we'll never stay there again.
