Weekend getaway

Would recommend Tue, Jun 30, 2015
Nice central location but on a very busy street and parking lot was shared with a run down low income apartment complex. Rooms were quiet but in need of updating. Bathroom and kitchen very dated. Bathroom tile/caulk were grungy, grout discolored and didn't seem clean. Reception area really nice and the courtyard was landscaped really nice and gave a tremendous ambience. Pool was small but nice for kids. Bikes were available for checkout and happy hour and cookies provided. Breakfast was adequate. Overall, not great but not bad just middle of the road.

I stayed here for a night. The staff was very nice. It felt like a step up from a motel, but the staff added some nice touches such as wine and cheese and milk and cookies to give the place a more homey feel.

Very old & small but great staff

Would not recommend Mon, Nov 3, 2014
This is a very old place. The rooms are quite small. Uncomfortable bed. Shares a driveway/parking lot with an apartment building where strange people hang out in the carports. The staff however are the shining glory for the place- the front desk staff were cheerful and extremely helpful.

Lovely wedding weekend

Would recommend Tue, Sep 16, 2014
If you like comfort and don’t need modern amenities this is a fantastic hotel. We appreciated the comfortable bed, a kitchenette and that there was plenty of space in the room. The deluxe continental breakfast was sufficient to get the day started and they had cruiser bikes available for free for a nice beach ride. The only unfortunate part of the room was the bathroom was dated with the shower head being a bit low for taller guests. Overall it was a great stay and I would highly recommend it.
