After reading frightening reviews of affordable beachfront hotels, I decided to stay inland and chose the Candlewood Suites.
The hotel was centrally located 15 minutes from the beaches and downtown
Location seemed unlikely for a hotel -- in a medical park area but it appeared safe, quiet and attractive.
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and provided me with an upgrade to a suite. That was a pleasant surprise.
The suite was quite comfortable and well equipped. Very quiet. A flat screen in the living area and bedroom, well equipped kitchen and plenty of outlets for gadgets.
This hotel had the best internet service out of all of the places I have stayed at in the last year. Fast and never lost a connection. [Less]
