2.0 Bad
Pros:Location

Cons:Hotel is in process of being torn down but this was not disclosed upon booking. Beach was unusable in front of hotel from construction, no heat in rooms (30’s at night), fridge didn’t work, toilet ran all night, room was not kept up well, hotel 99% empty & yet we were given a parking deck view. Should have disclosed they were under contraction. No room service bc of Covid already a negative but all this was too much. So sad. Horrible Christmas stay.
