NO AC, Beautiful Location, and Misleading Info

Would not recommend Wed, Sep 30, 2015
The day we arrived it was very humid and hot. We soon found out there was no AC. Yes, windows do open up, but no breeze plus hot and humid meant uncomfortable night. Two ceiling fans but not enough air to cool off. The night we arrived we left the room as long as we could. Needless to say we had a miserable night. When we booked the room it stated two queen beds. One of the queen beds is a sofa pull-out bed. Very misleading. We packed up early the next morning and left. Location great, but not a hotel I would return to at all, nor recommend.

No A/C

Would recommend Tue, Sep 22, 2015
The location was perfect. Parking is very limited. Unless I didn't see it on the website, I had no idea that the rooms do not have air conditioning. It happened to be a very warm weekend and the room was very hot with only a fan.

Beachfront stay

Would recommend Fri, Aug 14, 2015
The location was great - right off the beach. However we had zero view from our room only 4 rooms actually face the beach. We had no hand towels or wash cloths 3 of the 4 days we stayed. The TV was snowy or unclear the duration. Noise from other rooms and the street is easily heard through the night through the open windows. However in all fairness the room was clean and close to the beach - hard to find for the price. The biggest issue was parking. There were few spaces at the hotel. We got a $52.50 ticket one night for parking at the hotel and another night we had to park 3 blocks away at the sister hotel - not my understanding of onsite free parking included

We really enjoyed our stay & plan on staying here again. The only negatives were the parking, it's hard to find parking close and the cable TV wasn't real clear. Some stations didn't come in very good.

Disappointing Disaster

Would not recommend Sat, Nov 29, 2014
Changed room three times before they got the reservation right. Rude front desk. Dated decor. Broken fixtures. Very dirty. Ancient threadbare bedding. Hotel description beyond misleading. Absent security lets guests party loudly and fight. Continental breakfast consisted of stale danish and packet of tea.

Money saver

Avoid overpriced and overrated food nearby by stocking your room with provisions from Ralph's.

OMG WHAT A JOKE!!!

Would not recommend Sat, Nov 29, 2014
This was the WORST hotel experience I have ever had in my life. The hotel info says free parking. What it should really say is NO PARKING. The hotel does not have a parking lot. If you are astonishingly lucky you may find something on the side streets nearby, but as this is a beach community don't count on it. The owners of this property have another hotel half a mile away that has a small parking lot. If you are fortunate and do not stay out too late you may get a spot in that lot, but again, don't count on it. The room had a glass door! I'm not joking. Want to stay in a fishbowl? It had a very thin sheer gauze-like curtain attached to the door that did almost nothing for privacy. We were especially fortunate in that the dirty laundry bins were right outside the door to the room. Also, the shower head was completely broken. The hotel does have Wi-Fi, but it will cost you $10 for 48 hours and $20 for a week. If you stay at this disaster, good luck!!!

Great beach location

Would recommend Mon, Oct 20, 2014
Great location. Just north of Chrystal pier and steps form the boardwalk biking/walking trail. Can't get much close to the beach than that. It was pretty quiet at night too. Probably best to avoid times when highschool graduates might be having their senior trip. Bed was comfortable and kitchen was nice, though we didn't end up using it. Roller bed was horrible--saggy and springy.

Would recommend Mon, Jun 2, 2014
Great price and location! So Close to the beach and all the nightlife and great restaurants and shops within walking distance.

Money saver

You can rent beach cruisers at Rays for 10.00. So worth it.

Location, location, location.

Would recommend Mon, May 12, 2014
The Diamond Head Inn is situated right on the beach with great restaurants, bars, and shops just around the corner. The rooms are spacious and come with a full kitchen (with dishes and cooking implements). It's remarkably affordable for its location however, this hotel is probably best for students and spring breakers looking for a good time. I stayed on a Friday night and was woken up at 4am by partiers who came back to their room and started blasting music. I had expected as much given the price and location. However, Saturday night was quiet and peaceful. Staff were very friendly. Parking can be an issue but, spots are also available at a related hotel 2 blocks away.
