We've stayed at Abae in the past and some previous problems haven't gotten fixed. We had a lot of problems getting hot water for showers, as did 2 other families staying at the hotel on the same days we did. The only consistently hot water for showering was at 6 am. This was not a one day/one time problem, this was every day during our stay at various times throughout the day & night. The bathroom sink in was REALLY slow to drain, the towel rack above the toilet was falling away from the wall. There was no bottom sheet - just a regular sheet that kept getting untucked. The location is good for stocking up on food (Whole Foods and Trader Joe's close by) as there is a well stocked mini kitchen. There is NO parking at the hotel which makes loading and unloading luggage difficult. The hotel entrance is actually on 12th Ave, not West Ave as the address indicates. The pool area could benefit from a real cleaning, not just a daily hose down, as the cushions are mildewy. The 2 gentlemen working at the front desk were super helpful and went above and beyond to help us. The lobby purposely has some kind of strong smell that is very uncomfortable for those allergic to or sensitive to strong smells. The bathroom lacks a retractable clothes line across the shower to hang wet bathing suits & towels. There's a pool & the beach is only about a mile walk away so lots of wet things. The a/c vent was leaking even tho we only had the a/c set to 78 degrees. Not a great experience overall.
