Recent guest reviews

We have always stayed oceanfront in a condo at PCB. This is our first time trying something different and we were not disappointed. There is no ocean view, but this is a very nice hotel. It is located in a busy part of the beach. There are two restaurants in the parking lot of this hotel. (Zaxby's and Krystal's). You can also walk to several other stores and local restaurants that are in the plaza next door. There is also a Walgreens next to it. The hotel is very clean and recently built. We stayed in the king suite which was a nice size for a family of 4. The one bedroom worked out really well for getting dressed after showering and allowed extra privacy for the whole family. Did I mention there were two televisions!!! No Spongebob this trip: ) The kids enjoyed the pool which was shaded by the building. The pool is small but never crowded because it was either empty or occupied by one of two families at a time. Over all we had a great trip and plan to stay at this location again next year.

The hotel was definitely not what I expected. The sheets were stained and dirty. The room had an odor and the breakfast offered was awful and that's putting in nicely. Definitely not worth the money.

Comfortable bed, spacious room, microwave and refrigerator. Fantastic location, walk to the beach, Walmart and several fast food choices. Pleasant, helpful staff. We will definitely visit again!

We ended up there running from Hurricane Matthew. For the second night, they found a room for us, even though the motels in the whole area was solid booked. They gave us a roll away bed too, so that it is little easier for us. The owner an the day shift manager lady were very nice people and very accommodating.

Small hotel and not full of partying kids. Great for business, or young families that don't want to pay beach living prices.

Good location. Lots of parking. Clean and comfortable. Nice breakfast every morning.

The location of the hotel is great! It's just blocks away from the beach and right behind some of the main attractions around the beach. The staff was really nice. I left some headphones in the room after checkout and they called me in like 5 min to let me know, so that was super nice of them. The rooms were okay. For what I paid for them I didn't think they were worth it. The beds were super uncomfortable. The room was small. When we first got there the room and bathroom had a weird smell as did the whole hotel. Our handle on the toilet was broken although it still flushed. We made the best of our two nights but I wouldn't stay there for any longer than that.

The hotel is not close to the beach it takes 15minutes walking and 8 driving. They need younger people at the front entrance to check-in customers.

Awesome breakfast. Clean rooms. Definitely a bang for your buck. Perfect location near all of the town attractions!!

The hotel has a musky smell just entering the lobby. The first room we were given had a very bad smell and the ac was off so was very hot. The 2nd room was also hot but did not smell as bad. Breakfast room way too small. Had to wait forever to get free breakfast. Independently owned.

I had stayed at hotel before so I had high expectations, Plus I was taking my mother for Mother's Day. We arrived early so they allowed us to check in after our roadtrip. Our first room had a slight mildew smell as if someone left their beach clothes bundled up too long. We Went to front desk and P.J was so helpful. She immediately apologized with a smile and assigned us a new room. New room was fantastic. Will definitely be back

Hotel staff was awesome! Nice location for what we were there for. Plenty of places to eat as well.

Perfect trip, perfect stay, fun vacation! Would stay here again. Wonderful room!

Nice, clean, and friendly staff. Walking distance to the beach, and stores. Would definitely recommend for your visit.

My first impression was not great. The sliding glass doors was dirty. The lobby was old and a guest was laying on the couch laughing on their cell phone. Sabrina was very nice and accommodating. The room had a smell and the linen was wrinkled. The carpet had stains on it. I ask for a different room but that was the last room which was a handicapped room which I did not reserve. I went to the store and got some Lysol. The wall are very thin. I could hear every conversation in the next room. I almost slept in my car. Sorry for this review. But I thought you needed to know.

The kind staff and the free breakfast made this a just better than average stay. For the price, the hotel suited our needs. We had booked a king bed and when we arrived the hotel only had queen/queen available.

Very nice people with an awesome continental breakfest.

The shower was broken, TV remote didn't work and we found bugs in the bed. The front desk attendant moved us to a new room, which was slightly better. Everything worked but was not as clean as it should be. Very disappointed in our stay!

Clean hotel at a good price. For what we paid, I was very happy with the room and service and free breakfast is always a plus. It would be great to be right on the beach, but it would not deter me from staying here again. It was quiet and out of the main traffic but still a quick drive to the beach. Not an inconvenience at all. I'd stay here again!

an enjoyable experience with family. Easy in and out and shopping close by.
