We headed down the weekend of October 14 - 16th and the rates were no bargain - $153 (plus various taxes) per night. We were told we were getting an Ocean View suite. That was partially true. If you stood out on the balcony and faced due east, then yes, you could see the ocean. In fact, we had a pool view suite. Let's discuss the suite. Tiny bedroom which was poorly lit except for the two windows (which tilt inward) facing the parking lot which were frosted, but had NO window covering. Yes, we ended up propping various pillows in the window sill to try to block out the parking lot lights when it came time to sleep. Tiny bathroom with the switch to turn on the bathroom light only several inches from the shower curtain. The kitchenette had no drawers, which meant that the silverware and various other kitchen supplies were under the sink/counter area in close proximity to the trash can. Strange. One large flat screen TV without high definition and one small older TV in the bedroom area. Nothing like a plastic upholstered sofa to really feel like we were surrounded by luxury. No bargain. Would not return. We stopped by the hotel next door "The Ocean Club", and for similar costs will stay there next time.
