horrible hotel with no charicter at all, felt like lost in time.

The staff didn't know what they are doing. Most of the staff didn't speak English!!! either Spanish or Russian, what's with that this is America. The staff are very rude, they don't greet people and makes you wait and wait and wait while they are chatting in Spanish. We where given un clean and unredy room. The rooms were out dated very dirty ants and cocorochs. No phone in the room, no extra blanket and we asked for one they said they don't have. It was a discusting experince, the staff unprofessional uninformed and rude. The valyet parking system sucks, sometimes it takes 20 minuts for your car to arrive. This is by far the worst hotel I ever been. I will never ever go back again.

Roach hotel

Our room had a roach infestation, which was possibly related to being located next to the trash chute. The location was OK... It was right on the beach. Free valet parking was a good thing. The room was nothing special, with 2 double (not queen) sized-beds. The staff was Spanish speaking with very limited English,and not particularly friendly. The hotel is being remodeled and only 2 of the 4 elevators were functioning. The inspection certificates on the elevator were from 2007!! We won't be returning to this hotel.

Stressful getaway.

There were cockroaches and ants in the room. Not enough towels and toilet tissue the last couple of days. Toilet was not working properly and was leaking. Very poor insulation; all rooms had adjoining doors and you could clearly hear the people next door. We moved to a different room. Elevators were in poor condition. Security was good, pool was excellent and car valet service was very good.
