This is not a review of the hotel as a property. This is a review of the hotel as a community partner. A few weekends before Christmas, in cute little Atlantic Beach town center, in what is probably a slow time for this hotel based on the giant empty parking lot, I saw no signage saying no parking, so didn’t think twice about parking in the big empty lot to do a little Christmas shopping in the town center. However, immediately a hotel valet came over to my car and told me this was reserved for hotel only. Perhaps I missed a sign, so I moved.
But here’s what I l’d ask you, One Ocean: don’t you think it would be a much better community-minded move for you to allow some allocated parking on weekends like this when you know that the Christmas shopping revenue helps the town, and you have all those empty parking places? Take a look at this picture and draw your own conclusions.
We come to town often to see our son and daughter-in-law who live here, and have considered staying at this hotel in the past. But seeing that they really don’t care much about their community, I think we’ll pass and stay somewhere else.
