Absolutely the worst hotel I have stayed at. Room smelled like smoke, vomit in the toilet, broken pool light with no signage for the kids playing around the area, mold and mildew smell, housekeeping just walked into my room to see if I checked out when I was there another night, housekeeping only made 1 bed up, fire alarms going off the last day I was there. Office staff extremely rude and not helpful and refusing to help except send housekeeping again. Obviously they don’t clean toilets and make 1 bed!

The property itself is outdated. The staff is super friendly. The check in process was a little slow, but I didn’t mind since they allowed my to check in an hour early without fuss. The toilet in our room didn’t work and they couldn’t send anyone out until the next morning so that was a tad annoying. There’s plenty to do on the property which is nice just in case the weather is bad. The room and bathroom were clean. Overall I’d stay again.

The location is great. The overall cleanliness of the property is terrible. Visible dirt all around the hotel room and bugs in the bathroom!

I only liked this property because it was downtown & next to the water. It was outdated, could’ve been cleaner & my tv didn’t work. I didn’t like the $100 incidental fee, would rather they have my card number on file IN CASE there was an incident. No early check out & no breakfast. Only pro was the location.

It's an older building it felt like a convalescent home. The heater never worked after they sent someone to check on. The floors felt like sand was never cleaned up. The pool was cold and the jacuzzi didn't turn on. Great location just not what I expected for being so close to a beach and the reviews from others. I didn't make it to my first night and no credit was granted??! Disappointed.

Would not stay here again. Room was old and wood rotting from furniture. We stayed on 1st floor and our curtains wouldn’t even close all the way. Not worth what I paid for it.

I didnt like that i had to put down a deposit for the room extra from the price. That was very inconvenient and the money is on hold for 2-10 business days. Im just going to sleep and shower, not destroy the room!!

We had to book last minute since our previous booking canceled on us. It was the only hotel left on a saturday. Over priced for what it is. Even on a high demand time, is just not worth it because the building is very old and dated. Furniture had paint peeling, the wall on the back of the toilet was terrible looking. We got the city view room but it was facing the maintenance shed! The building needs serious renovation everywhere! The staff and service was great. Also is on a great location.

Our room was right off the beach. When we arrived beach was full of trash but the next two mornings a tractor raked up the trash. Lots of loud music. Couldnt sit on the balcony at night for the noise

Hotel is dated. Room wasn’t clean well. Found drug paraphernalia in the desk from previous occupants. As well as a wad of hair in the shower.

Checked in to Holiday Inn and within 30 minutes checked out. Toilet was not working due to a leak by water on/off value. Maintenance man came right away and said he told manager to place my room out of service a week ago. Checked out and stayed somewhere else

View is great, right in the water. Hotel is showing its age, needs updating. Beds are comfy and air works great!

Honestly I was very disappointed the AC didn’t work and was super hot. I spend too much money on it , not happy at all. Clean room though.

Great Price. Nice view of the beach. We all had fun would come back again. Beach was great as well as the pool.

Ok place to stay

Proprty and rooms are old. Floor in the room was dusty, bathroom ceiling was a lot lower than the room ceiling. Dirty windows. The person that cleans the rooms left their vape pen charging in our room and left it smelling pretty bad. One of the house keepers was still in the hall so we handed it to her and she said it belonged to another housekeeper and that she would give it back to her. Check in took a very long time. Air conditioner was really loud all night.

The beds were super comfortable and the AC worked great! You could tell this hotel is very old by the worn down carpet. I can see how it would habe been the place to be in the 60's and 70's. Martin the bartender was awesome! Checking in and out took a while... may still be under staffed. No easy way to get to water if you have a knee or ankle injury. Bathroom is no where close if you are drinks on the beach.
