Awful experience

First off my husband and I reserved the room for two nights we arrived at 6:30pm to check-in and it was horrible. Upon entering the room a dead cockroach met me at the door the smwel of mildew and so I walked in the sink and bathroom area and there was dead roaches on the floor with trash, I told my husband I would not allow my dog to stay there and to make it worst we didn't cancel our reservation we saw the conditions and refused to stay. The man at the desk said we have to charge you for one day and orbitiz said we are not entitled to any refund. I'm confused we didn't chance our reservation we just could not stay in those conditions never again we want all of our money back.

Worst hotel ever

Where to start...I booked this hotel because it was only for a night and I was getting in late and leaving early. I wasn't expecting much but somehow I still managed to be disappointed. The hotel is located in a residential area with nothing in the area in the way of entertainment. The hotel staff and owner were awful! First, I had immense trouble on the phone trying to allow someone else to check in on my behalf. Then they could not find the reservation information upon arrival and refused to give keys to each guest. They were very rude off the bat and don't try asking for additional towels, lest you be accused of having too many people in your room and threatened to be charged if you have more than 2 guests even when your reservation is made for 3 guests. There were roaches outside walking up to the room...didn't see any in the room but the room was dirty and outdated. Beds were like sleeping on a board and I was afraid to put my things on the floor or take my shoes off. Even for the price I would not recommend this hotel to anyone for any reason. Stay away!

wouldnt stay again

Staff wasn't that friendly. Hotel room was ok but needed a good cleaning. The bath tub had hair in it. The toilet was nasty. The ceiling had water spots and needed fixed. And the corners of the floor had dirt in them. They need to update. It is a motel not a hotel. Motel is 10 miles from the beach. Paid WAY TO MUCH for what the room was worth.
