found roaches in my room. Alive I told front desk they did not care I had to go downstairs never seen that.

Liked that it was very close to beach. Better breakfast would be nice and need to be cleaned better

You can tell this is an old facility, which is fine.. but they have obviously not put a dime of money into it to keep it up. The hand rails are unsafe, the walls are crumbling, the rooms were stuffy, and ac was disturbingly loud. The only thing that makes this property worth staying at is the location. It’s central to everything on the sea wall and has easy beach access directly across the street.

The propery was old and run down. Extremely loud music coming from the pool until late hours of the night. We overheard a few guests that shared our same feeling of the propery

Everything was great about this hotel! We loved that we had an ocean view and balcony! The staff was amazing and everything worked. All I would say is maybe update the tvs. Change nothing else!

Elevator was broke.I have cancer and ride Ascooter and my daughter was shown how toopen door and close it for it to work They failed to let us know that the handicap rooms was on first floor.We wanted 4th floor for view of the beach but we got view but no handicap room.

I’ll be completely honest. I didn’t expect perfection, but this is a roach motel literally. The staff was fine, butthe property itself if completely subpar. Needs a major overhaul in cleanliness and presentation. Found multiple insects and leftover filth from prior inhabitants. Do not recommend.

It is an old property and needs updating. There were ants in my room (including in my bed). The first night only a couple of ants so I didn't think much about it but the next morning before checkout, there were several. I notified the desk. They have a nice pool area but the pool is in need of repair. The room did not have a fridge or coffee maker and only one small 3-drawer nightstand to put your close in. The hotel staff were nice and the location is great.

The room was okay but the outside of the facility was very dirty,

I did not like that there was an absence of a refrigerator, coffee pot, and iron. I LOVED everything else

Location and view of beach was very good. Property could use a little bit more up keep but overall i was happy.

Close to the beach as advertised. However, there was a leak when we got to our room, there was a mold smell in the bathroom with some small patches of mold and peeling paint on the ceiling. The door did not shut as well as expected. The staff was polite but not friendly and seemed to be overwhelmed. Overall, very disappointing for the price!

The view is bout the best thing going for this hotel. The room I stayed in was dirty and had items left from who ever was there before. There’s no fridge or safe in the room.

Commodore on the beach. You get what you pay for. We were there 5 days and only allowed 72 hours of WiFi access. Our sink wouldn’t drain and got super nasty with toothpaste and whatnot. Bath ran brown water for the first bit when turning it on each time. Water was literally leaking from our light in the bathroom above the mirror. Spider on ice tray. Huge ball of hair in bathroom. Pool was GREEN. We were sitting on the balcony and even someone driving by yelled ”YOUR POOL ISNT CLEAN! ITS GREEN!” Breakfast consisted of packaged cereals and muffins and bad coffee. I didn’t realize there wasn’t a mini fridge—which that’s my fault, but that’s def something to consider if you’re thinking of staying here. If you can get over those minor inconveniences, the location is great.

I like that you can walk across to the beach. I also like that it has an elevator. I didnt like that there were no mini fridges or coffee makers. I did not like the contential breakfast. It should be breakfast Snacks. It does need vents fixed and some overhauling .
