SoSo

The Location was great. The room needed to be updated with new furniture. There was no hair dryer or ironing board and iron. Good place to just sleep.

Disgusting!!

The motel is perfect on outside. But its not perfect on the inside. We got to our room stains on carpet. Tiolet was very nasty. It would not flush. Shower would not drain. No internet to check for things to do. TV very old. No channels for kids to watch. You can also tell that they do not read reservations [...]neither because we ask for a crib and none was there. Glad of that because after looking at the room and the hotel I would not let my child sleep in it. Having three children you wouldnt put a couple on the eighth floor neither. Just say you get what you pay for. Will not recommend this place to anyone. I am a person that is scared to complain because you might end up worser off. So we toughed it out for the two nights because it was a place to lay our heads after sighting see.

Unbeatable location for the price

Great location right on the beach, but there is no wifi in the hotel and the pool stays open late. Also the mattresses are the worst i've ever sleep on.

Weekend getaway

Terrible parking availability! One small lot across the street and a parking garage a block away. Pools, both outdoor and indoor, were very small. Beds very uncomfortable.

Great location....not so great place!

I picked this hotel after reading numerous reviews. I would concur with the majority....the hotel is old and dated and is not very clean. However, it is on the beach and in a very good location and is cheap....so you get what you pay for! Probably the nicest feature of the hotel is the pool area with bar area and music enterainment and the fact that you can walk to everything!

There are some really good restaurants a short walk from the hotel! Dirty Dons, Kona Sushi, Beach Bummz all had great food and atmosphere!
