Rally weekend

I stayed here for the Lone Star Rally weekend. The location is convenient walking distance to the beach. Also not to busy in the middle of all the traffic I truly enjoyed my stay.

Overpriced!

Extremely disappointed with accommodations for the price paid. Facility is in dire need of repair and renovation. The door to room had a 1/2" gap and didn't close all the way, but it did lock and stay closed. I did not leave valuables in the room for fear the door could be kicked in. While room appeared clean, there was wrapped candy under edge of bed and debris under couch. TV was old, mattress sagged in middle, linens were worn and stained, and entire room had shoddy paint job. Did I say disappointed?

The owner yelled at us!

The owner screamed at my girlfriend in her room and yelled at me. She told us to "Get out of here!" I never have been treated like this anywhere!

Room was better then average

Location is good, just off the seawall, Waffle house is right next door, good food. The room was what I expected, reasonably clean, everything worked, could use a little repair, minor though. I would stay again.
