This was the worst hotel I stayed at other than motel 6 type of 3 stars. It's almost equal to that. I could hear the neighbors showers, conversations, drunken ppl banging on doors, talking in the hallway all echoing in my room all night long. I could not sleep. I called front desk so many times and no one would answer for over 15 min. Air conditioning is one of those old one that's super loud just like 3 star or less place. Bathroom has extra space around the toilet yet super tight sink to get ready for makeup with a bad lighting. It's by the marina but packed with boats right in front, so basically we have the view of boats parking lot, that's it. Nothing romantic or pretty. Close to downtown and once you leave the hotel area, nice marina views on the island to walk. But I would not recommend to stay here. It was a terrible experience not being able to sleep and kept up hours into the night and wake up with only 4 hrs of sleep for a business trip, and pay $--- for that.
Pros: I liked the room colors
Cons: There's no noise proof from other rooms or from the hallway. Bathroom was bland and not planned out right with awkward spaces and bad lighting.
