    Friendly staff. Close to beach. Free parking. Clean rooms. Comfortable bed. Bathroom was small but overall satisfaction of room and hotel stay compensated for it. Hotel was nice and quiet. No problem with Wifi connection

    The beach is about 2 blocks and lower state street is about 4-5 blocks away. It's a nice walk into town if you are a walker.
