Dirty and Rundown

The staff were friendly and obliging, but the room was dirty and in a poor state of disrepair. Wooden blocks holding up the aircon (in the room), a hole in the bathroom door, iron burns and tears in the carpet, loose toilet and dirty floors were just some of the things. The carpet had not been vacuumed and when we asked for it to be vacuumed the staff noted it, but the same clippings were still present on the floor the next day. The carpet was very dirty, some paint flaking off the walls and the mattresses and bedbases were tired and dirty. Take some insect repellent for the mosquitoes. Location was okay, but I would not stay here again.

Last-minute 4th of July Romantic Over-nighter

Slightly distant from the beach but well worth the 5-10 min drive for the savings!! Clean room, and extremely friendly/accommodating staff!!

It was o.k.

The location was great. Only thing was that the air wasn't cold enough and the toilet got backed up, but the staff apologized and gave us a plunger and everything was fine after that.

Convenient, clean, and friendly

The room was clean, no critters shared it with us. Everything was in working order. The Hotel is in a convenient place for finding dining and shopping, though not close to the beach (about a mile and 3/4). The staff is very friendly and eager to provide a pleasant stay. For the price, it would be hard to beat.

Exactly what I needed!

A great value! The public beach is only a 5 minute drive from the hotel and you save oodles by not staying ocean front! Front desk clerk was helpful and friendly! Would Stay Again

OK for just a one night place to sleep close to a beach event

Nice staff, pool, common areas, and breakfast OK, but rooms are poorly renovated. Sheets clean, but the room was very musty until we ran AC for some time. Carpets, spread, and furniture gave the feeling that they were not clean.

a weekend getaway

i was looking for a good hotel near the beach. to begin the hotel was just a mile from the beach. on the first day there i don't even think we drove two miles from the place. myself and my girlfriend enjoyed lunch on the water, raced go-karts (so fun) there is a two and a half story go-kart track just on the other side of the road. came back to the hotel after just 3 hours to take a break from the heat and the room was all ready cleaned and bed made up. to end all i forgot my ipod and tomtom in the room on the second night. instead of locking them in the truck. they where sitting on the table and when we got back they where not moved. the staff was well kept curious and generally nice to interact with. room was immaculate when we walked in. restroom was clean with no odors. and the air conditioner, despite 105 heat in the summer sun, was blowing ice cold even at 2pm. i will be going back to this hotel and cant wait for the trip. the only down fall to the room was there is no WIFI in the room you have to go to the front desk for it.
