ROOM NOT AS DECRIBED ON LINE

THERE WAS A GOOD VIEW TO OCEAN AND ROOM WAS OK BUT NOTHING SPECIAL. NO HAIR DRYER NO IRON OR IROINING BOARD AS WAS IN THE WRITE UP. THE ROOM HAD A COFFEE MAKER BUT NO COFFEE. I HAVE STAYED IN LOTS OF MOTELS/HOTELS OVER THE YEARS AND THIS IS A FIRST. ONE OF THE PLASTIC CHAIRS WAS BROKEN AND THE TWO DID NOT MATCH. THE TUB FLOOR FELT LIKE IT WAS GOING TO FALL OUT. THE WOOD AROUND THE SINK WAS BROKEN AND STICKING OUT.

Not what I expected!!!!!!!!

We were generally disappointed in our room. It was like being back in the 70's at least the paint job was. Very noisy plumbing

Great for the price

The hotel was very nice. When staying on the seventh floor your water pressure is very bad. This was to be a non-smoking hotel but as soon as we walked off the elevator all we could smell was smoke. It took a few hours for the smell to get out of the hallway. We did not smell it often after that first day. Other than that it was a very nice hotel. Location was in walking distance of so many things. We will stay here again.

Girls Get-A-Way

A bit disappointed that they did not supply coffee. There was a coffee pot, no coffee or filters, no ironing board but with a deposit you could go down and get one from the front desk. Even though we were in a non-smoking room, there was a cigarette butt on the floor by my bed. Walls were paper thin and you could hear everyone. Location was great and we had an awesome TV in the bedroom. They had plenty of towels and wash clothes in the room and they left enough soap and shampoo for the 3 of us.

SandCastle for cheap Vacation

It is not the best staying at the hotel, but I would give it a nice, sweet D for over all. There is a lot of things that is needed to be upgraded, as such, comforter on bed was itchy. It is very cheap and make from plastic stuff. And their water at hotel smells like the beach, and they got to do something about the smell in the bathroom and water, too.

our trip

We got to check in an hour before time, was a very nice room. The beds could have been a little softer but we had fresh clean towels and our room cleaned without asking. The staff was always friendly and very helpful. We would stay here again.
