I've stayed here many times before, due to cheap room rates and good location. It always felt dirty and outdated. Recently they've been doing renovations, which were long over due. The room was very clean, updated, and comfortable. It's now an excellent value for the price. The pool and common areas still lack a certain level of cleanliness, but as long as they continue to renovate and don't go up on their prices, it will be a great stay. Can't say much about the breakfast. Tried to eat it once before. Ended up leaving to get something better. Besides, who eats continental breakfast when they are on vacation? Lol

The sofa bed in the room was DIRTY, while under renovation this is not acceptable

Excellent. Clean and nice people. Wonderful clean sheets flor tub sink towels etc. very understanding people

The closest to the shrimp festival was able to walk to the festival in minutes was the only thing good about the visit. The elevator was dirty. The floor in our room had a weird feeling. Day of check in was ok but when we checked out the girl had her phone on watching something . She asked did I want a receipt I said yes she printed it hand it to me no thank you come back or anything.the room could use some fixing up if all this could be fixed we would consider using them again

The pool out of the way and private. So nice and beautiful

Pool was dirty. Ice machine never worked. Staff was very friendly

Location was great. Staff was very friendly & room was very clean

The front desk staff was nice, breakfast wasn’t that great, which was disappointing because one of the main reasons for staying here was for the free breakfast. Rooms weren’t very clean, housekeeping staff wasn’t that great. The breaker for the power in our room tripped once and it took the staff several hours to fix it. Housekeeping left big trash bags by the elevator for a whole day and that stunk. Washing machine cost 6 quarters and the dryer cost 5, felt like it didn’t actually clean the clothes. Liked that the pool was on the 3rd floor and also that the hotel was so close to the beach and everything else. It was also nice that they have rooms available that have 3 full beds in it, very convenient for my family, oh and the full size fridge was nice since we were staying for 6 days. All in all I felt like it was good for the price that we paid.

good: close to the beach. bad breakfast, windows are so dirty that you can`t clean them anymore. Far too expensive for what you get. It seems like nobody cares about the object since everyday new people come in because of the location. We came from Germany making a road trip, so far the worst experience in the last 15 days.

Close to everything! Walking distance to public beach access.

It's near the beach an a good restaurant. It had a nice bed and a HUUGE refrigerator (unnecessarily so), but everything else is old and tired.The worst part is probably the large lady at the desk. She was not very pleasant. At one point on my way to my room I saw her sitting there talking to another male worker. About 5 minutes later I called to get the WiFi password and was sent to voice mail. I went down to get a soda and behold! These two people were in the exact same place they were a few minutes earlier. I guess a customer calling was not important enough to interrupt their conversation. I also saw a lot of... "undesirables" lurking around, standing outside of their room yelling, etc. "he's my baby too!", etc. etc. Not fully recommended, but OK in a pinch, or if you want to save a few bucks.

Lobby reeks with odor masking chemical. Two front desk staff. One on the phone, one monitoring phone transaction. I was left unattended until the phone call ended.... rude first impression. Elevators filthy. First room had broken thermostat on ac. Everything at the complex needs paint. Tile floor in room is filthy. Remote for TV didn't work. This facility needs maintenance. Thankfully, bed was clean and comfortable.

Nice hotel across the street from the beach. We stayed in a room with king bed and sleeper sofa...nice large room. Older rooms, but it was clean. Breakfast was good. Plenty of hot water! Elevator worked! Parking was convenient. No complaints!

Very nice for the price and easy beach access for across the street.

Good location. Front desk staff was wonderful! Cool pool. Has icre cream shop on site which is great for kids.

Moat of the staff we encountered were polite. The room cleaning services were adaquete the beds were made but didn’t get clean towels each day or tolitries replaced

To start, there was no "Do Not Disturb" sign available. The first day while working in the room I had 3 staff members try to come into the room. I did ask all 3 for replacement towels, I had spilled a soda and used them to clean it up. I never saw any of them again. The room I had came with a corner window, which had not been cleaned on the outside in quite some time. And every night I had to re-tape the blinds closed so as to not be awakened at sun up with light pouring into the room. Staff removed the tape just about every night. ( was working well into the morning hours, so 6am came way to fast) The toilet did flush, but...lets just say it worried me. There was an odd smell outside my room. It did not come into the room, but it was there when I opened the door. The pillows are in drastic need of replacement. Internet connection was UNSTABLE!!! (had trouble with it for 5 days) It was off and on all weekend. The only good thing about the location was the proximity to the event going on.
