The location was great! The hotel is older and needed to be updated and it was convenient that there was a kitchenette.

Nice hotel, cant beat the price!

I was skeptical about the hotel when i read all the reviews about the hotel. However me and my family were committed to staying on the beach this year and for $80 a night we figured we would give it a try. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean, awesome balcony views, nice hot tub and pool areas with a great beach side view. The only draw back i had was alot of people who were not guests at the hotel would come in through the back and swim and get in the hot tub. I would recommend it to anyone though. Great deal!

What we expected for the price

We were primarily interested in an on-the-beach hotel. This hotel was on the beach and for the price ($80/night) was worth it. It was outdated and slightly rundown but the friendliness of the staff and location made up for the apperance.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

The viewing of the dolphins tour. Its 20 dollars a person but your on the boat for 2 hours long and get to see real fish and hold them and stuff. All kinds of different fish. Great for the kids and adults ...

No internet / modern amenities

Quaint location close to bridge, shopping, restaurants and beach. Great value with the kitchen and spacious room. Outdated and dull otherwise. No internet! The staff was very friendly.

Friendly staff, old hotel

Although the staff at the Hotel was very friendly, the general hotel maintenance and upkeep could improve A LOT. Sorry, but I dont think I'll be coming back very soon..
