Pleasurable, convenient beachfront

Yes, it was dated in terms of things like rusted metal door frames, but the decor was beautiful, the linens were first-rate, and the view was gorgeous. Friendly staff, easy access from parking to room and room to beach. The pool area was outstandingly landscaped with waterfalls, hot tub, and a bar (even an ATM). Have paid much more, for far less in the past.

The stay here was very nice. The hotel staff was very professional and the view was awesome. I was trying to get in touch with agency to get another night on Friday but they squeezed us in.

Age is really showing.

Refrigerator wasn't working when we checked in. After I had a chance to troubleshoot the problem, I determined the electrical outlet was bad. It was fixed the next day. The walls had a lot of plaster cracks, the A/C was very noisy, everything in the room including sheets and clothes was always damp. The sink and bathtub/shower drains were seme clogged, so you were standing in three inches of dirty when you finished your shower. There also was a shortage of lighting in the room. The door had at some point been pried open with a crowbar which had broken the security latch off. So write this on off, it's age is definitely showing.

Little weekend getaway

This hotel is old and outdated. Many issues with my stay here. The sink doesn't drain properly and tends to clog up, the toilet flushes at such a high velocity that the water and its contents from the commode splashes onto the floor, the water in the shower was yellow then it turned normal, there are large cockroaches throughout the motel at night, unreliable wi-fi connection, and inadequate parking spaces. The only positive was the decent free breakfast. Definitely do not recommend.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Purchase something from Harpoon Harry's and save the receipt. With that receipt you can bypass the $30 fee for using the chairs on the beach.
