Not a great stay!!

This was a last minute booking to extend our stay one more night. The price was great and so was the view but the room was not clean at all!!! Our toilet leaked so we used half our towels mopping up water so we didn't slip when using the bathroom. The side of the toilet was also caked with what looked like urine and the shower had mold growing in the corners. Disgusting!!! I told the front desk and they really couldn't have cared less. I would not recommend this hotel at all,

GREAT AMINITIES

For the price and location my stay was great. Pool, beach, restaraunt and live music. Room cleanliness not ok. Amenities were definitely better than room cleanliness.

4th of July family trip

The staff was extremely friendly and the view was great. The only down side is probably the fact that they don't offer a free breakfast and the smell of alcohol in the room.

Girls Getaway

The hotel was fairly clean. The bathroom was a little dirty. The door to go out onto the balcony was difficult to open and shut and had sharp edges. Walking through the hallway was difficult because of the heat that was amplified because of the windows. The beds were comfortable and clean.

Horrible Hotel

Hotel was filthy, staff was unpleasant, pool was down. When requesting for a different room due to the cleanliness of the assigned room, the staff was not willing to accommodate. Didn't end up staying here due to the lack of customer service and cleanliness of the room.

Good Value for ocean views.

No where else is going to get you a decent room with a balcony and ocean views at this price point. Staff were nice and friendly. The rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. However the entire hotel is pretty dated but I can see how it would have been a preety great hotel in the early 90s. Pool left a bit to be desired full of sand and overlooked by the hotels busy resturaunt. Also if you go to bed before 11/midnight bring some earplugs restraint has loud live music at night, I liked it adds to the fun atmosphere of the area but I am sure some people don't like it. Overall if I got the room at the same rate I would probably stay here again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Eat at Doc Taylors/ Tautogs resturaunt on 23rd street brilliant restraunt Big Sam's on the rudee inlet is worth a visit too.
