Absolute Gem
This hotel is very nice. Extra firm bed. Cleanliness is 5 star. Not crazy about the shower pressure but can’t complain. This easily beats out any high rise hotel in downtown surfers.

6/10 Good

Simple, convenient but had some um issues
The staff on check-in and out were super friendly. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was modern, but tap drips. Room11. I was in a rush and just wanted to go and did not want to whine to the staff. My issues - Room 11 is part of the hotel that must have been a carport/garage at one point. That is fine space-wise, but is right on the street and with a very simple glass sliding door and pull blinds feels a bit odd. It is also a noisy from passerbys. So ask for a room inside the complex. The other problem, I hate to say is just yuck. When I arrived at the room there was tan throw-sheet decorative thing on the end of the bed, and I noticed it was placed strangely diagonal. I didn't care and just left it there. The next morning when I woke, it had fallen off the bed. underneath it appeared to be light poo skid marks on the white dooner underneath where the throw sheet was apparently tactically placed. Front right side. So either the skid marks survived the wash cycle, and the cleaners covered it up - or the dooner was not washed, and the cleaners covered it up. Either way, not a nice find. I do hotel TV systems for a living, and see hundreds of rooms each year; so I know when something like that should be raised with the hotel. I just was not int eh mood or the time to spend oding it on check-out, I had to get to my next work site.
