"We always stay on the third floor, great ocean views!"
"beach view rooms are additonal charge"
"One portion of the hotel offers better ocean views, though for a premium price."
"1st floor rooms patios are accessible to other hotel patrons, so choose a 2nd or 3rd floor room if you want a private balcony. No elevator."
