I am so sorry to hear about your unfortunate experience. We go to great lengths to provide the highest level of cleanliness and service and take your comment very seriously. We will certainly take into consideration offering different items on our breakfast bar. I hope that you called the front desk so they could get housekeeping to your room so they could take care of those issues for you. We really appreciate your feedback and hope you give us another chance to make this right.

"try to get a higher floor for less noise"
"The higher the room the better the view!"
"Oceanfront and a room with an updated bathroom"
"Hotel website has a actual picture of the view from each room. Ocean front is best but side views closest to ocean are also good"
"Oceanfront (particularly corner rooms) in the main building, preferably on the 3rd or 4th floors for the best views."
