6/10 Good

It was OK.
We paid $150 per night. For half that I would have given it a great rating. For this price it was a bit disappointing. The staff were very nice but overall it needed attention. An ice bucket but NO ice anywhere on the premises. Ok, I can live with that. Shower was marginal. Very poor sound insulation. Just a bit neglected. Especially for the price. I see two factors causing this. 1. Still coming back from hurricane damage. 2. New owners that are not putting in the effort.

6/10 Good

Very tired and worn out. Possibly due to the remnants of Hurricane Irma. When I asked for a second chair for our room, the response was that there's only one desk, so only one chair. The continental breakfast included a thermos of not hot water, two boxes of tea bags, an almost empty jar of instant coffee and styrene cups. Of course, you could always purchase something from their vending machines providing you have the exact price. The bars on the boardwalk generally don't serve breakfast unless you're in the mood for a liquid meal. I admit that I chose this hotel for the low price, but never again. This property was rated 3 stars...I would have a hard time giving it two stars.

8/10 Very good

Simple accommodations at a reasonable price
Some of the information online is outdated. Breakfast is no longer available but the staff will show you an inexpensive locals place. Wifi was available in my room, not just in the lobby and it’s free with good speed for streaming. Air conditioning was powerful and easy to adjust. Front desk staff was generally friendly and always willing to help with tourist type questions. Now for the negatives. The property is fairly old and is bare bones. Getting to the beach involves going out the front door and walkin 1 block through an alley. That’s generally OK for me but it’s not a fancy place. There is very little storage space for clothes but it’s OK for a solo traveler. The biggest challenge is the lack of electric outlets. None in the bathroom and only one in the sleeping area. A 3-way plug was used but the refrigerator, television and router used all the slots. I unplugged the television and rotated my phone and tablet through nighttime charging. As other reviewers have noted, this property is best used for an overnight stay before a cruise.

I booked a smoking room and put into a no smoking room. The bed was heaven though and hotel close to facilities.

4/10 Fair

Yesterday, from the airport to to Sea View Hotel, I tried to checked in but, unfortunately, the hotel was closed for operation. I ended up walking with my luggage looking for a hotel nearby. I ended up staying at Horizon View. Otbitz should try to coordinate in the future with your hotel partners especially at this time of pandemic.

2/10 Poor

The management has zero hospitality skills. Rude, argumentative. I rename this accommodation the Hostile Hotel.
