We didn't use the elevator, we stayed on the second floor, and like exercise opportunities. We never saw any ants, our room was as clean as a pin. Had no complaints, will say here every time we are back in the area.

There is sufficient parking at the hotel. This is not on the beach, close to the beach. As far as parking at the beach, there are lots of beach accesses. All of them require you to pay.

No, only shared walkways connecting the rooms. The lower level rooms do have benches and small garden out front.
