Never, Never Stay Here!!!

Where to start? I would strongly suggest you not stay at this hotel. Trust me on this. Don't let the positive reviews fool you. Those people were either drunk, or family of the owners. Pay the extra $20 and find a chain like Hampton, Marriott, etc.. Stinky rooms. A combination of urine and a rest home. Matresses and pillows have stains. The bed blanket had marks, stains, or holes. Carpet is awful! The vanity is bad. No remote for the TV. Not enough parking. Don't let the free breakfast fool you. Cold cereal, but no milk. Ran out of donuts and didn't offer to get more. The pool was cloudy and full of debris. Worst of all, the service. Pete (supposedly the Manager) was rude! He has forgotten that he is in the customer service business, and that the customer comes first.

In and out

The Beds were clean the carpet was stained and dirty. The bathroom was smelly ( urine ) and the walls were peeling and swollen with water damage. I will never stay at this place again. NEVER!

Good location, reasonable, spacious. Downside: smelly, moldy, broken toilet paper holder, towels are hand-towel sized. I would have ignored the downside but the front desk staff were rude and indifferent. The guy when we checked out is the only one with manners.

Hotel ratings

This hotel has potential but needs some TLC. Things that get fixed are not fixed with quality. Curtains and bed spread were shabby, mattress worn out, TV intermittantly got static, and woke the next morning seeing bugs in the bed.

THE WORST EXPERIENCE

The hotel was falling apart, dirty and the staff was rude and unfriendly. If you decide to go, take your bedsheets, towels and bring your own soap, shampoo and toilette paper. Bring house slippers to walk inside because the carpets are filthy. Everything used in this hotel is cheap. The breakfast is the worst, stale doughnuts and plain corn flakes ONLY, orange tang, watered down coffee. The internet falls every five minutes and a new password is needed every day. No microwave in the rooms they have a mini microwave sitting in a corner closet in the hallway for guest use. The ice machine was broken. I will never go back to this hotel. The picture posted looks good. Don't trust it.

Good stay.

Me and my boyfriend went out to a near by club so it was convenient to stay at the hotel. The staff was friendly. Overall we booked the hotel to party not for luxury.

You Get What You Pay For

We stayed one night. Look, you get what you pay for. If you expect more...then pay more. The room was clean, the shower felt good after a long day of driving & at the beach. It was nothing fancy but for the price, it was good. Suggestions for your stay: Bring your own towels (their's are very scratchy & small), don't plan on swimming in the pool (it wasn't cleaned or even open), don't plan on getting any of the continental breakfast unless you wake at the crack of dawn (even then it's donuts, coffee & juice only). Need a place to shower & rest your head for cheap price. This is your spot!
