    This hotel is located on the ocean. It is clean, and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The office gave us a list of the New Year's celebrations so we didn't have to waste time looking. It was perfect for our 4 day stay.

    No, it's an outdoor pool that will probably open in early May. You have availability to the YMCA which is close by. The Colonial provides free access to its guests to the Y.
