summer vacation

The staff was so helpful, even though I didn't get the room I requested on the bottom floor they were sure on it the next morning and moved us when one was made available. The rooms were clean and got clean towels everytime we requested. And all for a good inexpensive price depending on when you booked.

Average

Pretty average. Room smelled a little when I got there. Not too far from the beach if you don't mind walking 5~10 min walk. Water pressure was very poor. Free breakfast. From the outside looks so much better then motel 6 next door. Wouldn't mind stay there again for next trip to spi.

Slightly Below Average

It wasn't terrible but wasn't great. You could tell it'd seen worse days and was revamped in the cheapest way possible but for the price it was worth it. Somewhere to store you stuff and rest your head, but if your looking for something a little more homely your probably not gonna find it in this price range. Great for spring breakers.

Senor Donkey's is a great little mexican restaurant in the parking lot of the hotel. I recommend the Chicken Chili Rellenos.

Very noisy and low life people

We couldnt sleep at all. Some idiot started his car at 5 am and sounded like an explosion. We woke up very scared, didnt know what it was. Then he kept revving up the engine for like 20 min. Someone else had their "boombox" so loud that the room was vibrating because of the bass. Terrible, wouldnt reccommend or go back. Rather pay a little more but with more educated people.

It was an "OK" motel

Good thing about this hotel is they are dog friendly and staffs are nice. But the room we stayed was dark with no natural light, unless you open the curtain on the walkway where guests are walking all the time.

okay for the price

The beds are very cheap and uncomfortable. Got there sun. afternoon got woken up by garbage truck at 4 am Mon. morning. The continental breakfast was not very good and worst of all a sign saying you can't bring breakfast out of small breakfast room. I brought it up to my room the whole time without them saying anything to me. I really didn't notice the sign. The day before we left a girl @ the desk was watching people leave the room & she is the one who told me about the rule. I went thru O and got a good price like $32 a night. But the beds were just so uncomfortable and the pillows were not great either.

Class reunion

It was perfect and quite reasonable. Pool was adequate, but some families had 4 children at a time Pool too small for single adults and family plus kids.
