Decent place to stay across from the beach& they treat me very well, been staying there for years

Staff was nice, but hotel in all felt very sketchy and dangerous and needed some desperate upgrades.

property is old but looks like they are remodeling some of it . ac controls in room have no adjustment . everything was clean but old . staff was friendly . breakfast was small but ok area . lots of noise its on a oceanside road . but i would stay there again

The staff is very friendly

The building conditions are disappointing and could use updates.

N0 elevator, no heat, no internet on 4f, swivel chair unsuitable. Nice ocean view.

Very well kept & very friendly front desk personnel

The restroom was dirty there was tile broken off the wall TV was broken with a black line in the middle of it and room card did not work to get ice from machine elevator did not work

The staff was not welcoming at all. There were three of them behind the plastic wall all talking to each other as I waited to be greeted for what seemed like quite awhile. When I finally was she was annoyed and I couldn’t hear a thing she was saying except the tv’s don’t work and we have breakfast. The room was wet, literally. The ceiling was falling down and scattered across the desk. I couldn’t get the balcony door to open. The only good things I have to say are that the ac worked and it was close to everything we needed.

Was denied a room after reaching the property. This was due to cable repair work that they needed. Horrible experience.

Vomit on balcony. I had to clean up. No tv. People on day shift unfriendly and rude, no maid service, the only positive was the view.

The location and view was amazing. Right across the beach and close enough to everything.

The property is very used and outdated. Upkeep could be better. Clean room and clean pool.

Location was good but the whole place was dilapidated

Nothing it was terrible, so i did a early check out.

Nice pool, great views, bed was comfortable, plenty of hot water. Elevator was creepy and stuffy (no air flow at all) so I took stairs to 4th floor. two dead cockroaches on floor in room, the metal tub stopper was laying on side of tub and I couldn't get it to go back into place, note on door upon check in warned no cable tv expected for 3 to 5 days (not a big deal to me, but some people that might be). The private balcony walls were cracked and had a 6 inch round sinkhole in the concrete floor on the right side that I was afraid would fall through to the balcony below mine so I avoided it.

I really appreciated the staffs friendliness and how accomodating they were. Now we didn't have any cable the entire time we were there and our tub was half the size of a normal tub but despite that, we would stay there again.

A little run down looking

I liked that it was close to the beach. I did not like the customer service of the staff, lack of towel or housekeeping service unless you requested which is something I did not know, TV in the room did not work for the entire stay and although they said they were sending up maintenance person twice no one ever showed. The room was clean. The outside facilities were not.
