The seawall is about 100 feet across. Walk across the seawall to the beach, which is 10 to 15 feet lower.

"The location was perfect. The room was nice, quiet, and clean. We arrived early, and the hotel clerk was rude and unwilling to let us in our room. We left and returned an hour later, and a different clerk let us check in early.2015-10-22"

"Ask for a ocean view room so you don't get a room in the back of the hotel.2015-11-29"
"Older hotel. My "non-smoking" room smelled like smoke, and there was mold on the ceiling above the shower. A man was loitering in the parking lot for almost an hour, which seemed creepy. I probably wouldn't stay here again.2015-09-17"
"The hotel and pool area were nice, and the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. There were no toiletries in our room, and the problem was quickly resolved. However, there were spots of blood in the bathroom; when we complained to the manager he seemed disinterested, though he did say he'd have it cleaned. The shuttle to the cruise port was miserable, and we weren't told we'd have to make a reservation. The drivers were nice, but we had to wait about a half hour each way. We won't be staying here again.2016-09-25"
"Perfect location. Great hotel and staff. Beautiful pool with an awesome slide for kids. This is the best-looking place on the strip.2016-08-05"
