Nice location and friendly staff. Could use some additional parking

Proximity to the beach can’t be beat. Room was spacious and clean

I love the room the staff the access to the pools and the beach. The hotel staff was great. Heather at front desk was Awesome. Bathroom could have been bigger.

Property was very nice didn't like the fact you had to pay for Beach chairs on top of the price you pay for room

Great location and friendly staff. Our room had roaches inside the min-fridge.

Great location and worth the extra money for an ocean front room! Could have sat on the deck all day!

Loved being able to sit on the balcony and watching and hearing the ocean waves roll in.

Nice hotel on the beach with nice pool areas. Room was comfortable. A bit pricy. Had to go to front desk to get toilet paper that was not restocked or tissues.

The management and staff were fantastic. Helped us celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary in complete comfort. Can’t thank them enough.

The first night the King Size room was great. We decide to stay another night and requested the extension. We were told that they were sold out for our room that we would've to move to a room with full beds and that the rate had doubled. We decide to stay and boy were we disappointed. The second room the carpet was atrocious because it was wet from the previous guest and had been left wet after we had moved in. As the day lingered on so did the smell. When we arrived back into the room we had to blast the AC to overcome the smell. Also, we noticed that the hotel never did fill up and the parking lot was half emptied so we really doubted that they were sold out.

Great location. Friendly front service. But the positive smiling girl needed help. It was check in time..phone ringing....waiting on guests...she stayed positive, but obviously needed help. Restaurant was a huge disappointment..and a costly one. Over $53 for breakfasf for 3 people. Outrageous. The server spilled syrup which kept dripping on my teenager. She moved chairs...because server did not clean up...pulled out a chair and there was dirt in the chair. I told her to go wash her hands...she came back saying no soap, only germex. I watched a different server carry a full coffee pot at a tilted angle. She had placed menus above the coffee pot as she was walking and never noticed the coffee sloshing out on the floor as she walked across the restaurant. No one seemed to notice or care. Coffee was left in puddles across the restaurant floor. Chairs were cushioned with a fabric covering. At a restaurant on the beach, why would you have these kinds of chairs? I complained to restaurant about our issues and asked for a comment card. They just said sorry about experience and said they did not have cards. Room was fine. Definitely stay away from restaurant...which makes me rethink staying there, if I have to go somewhere else for breakfast? No continental breakfast or breakfast bar. Menu order only. Very slow service...very pricey bill.

Right on the beach.. top floor great view of ocean.

Beds were comfortable, room was nice & clean. The balcony on the beach was very nice.

The pictures on the website are slightly deceiving. The building is older and in need of upgrades. The rooms are clean (and the cleaning crew is absolutely nice as can be), but fixtures are dated, the tiles in the bathroom didn't go as far as the wall, so we could see some of the concrete, the carpet is green and dated, the cabinets in the kitchenette were all crooked and barely attached, and the rooms/building had a very damp smell. HOWEVER, the hotel is right on the beach, and the beach front rooms have exceptional views, the hotel location is just past the T and is convenient for anything you could possibly want to do, and every person on the hotel staff was pleasant to work with and helpful. If I were making another trip, I'd likely stay somewhere different to get in a bit nicer hotel. However, if I were focusing solely on budget, for the cost, this is a solid option.

Everything was great except the weather nice beach great hotel

All was good. Needs a do not disturb door hanger as maid walked in on us.
