2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed at this location for a week. This motel is conveniently located on Front Beach rd. It's walking distance from Alvin's Island and several restaurants. Beach access is less than 100ft away! FREE parking with stay unlike other rip-off hotels trying to tax on parking. The motel pool is clean and open 24/7. My stay was comfortable and I was extremely pleased with the stay and service provided. Would recommend to others!

Do not stay here!!! It is an extended living place for a bunch of worthless junkies! They are rude and dangerous! Don't even pull in the parking lot! The rooms are nasty! The price isn't even good! DO NOT STAY HERE! The front office smells like pot and it seems that the owner needs to smoke less and clean more! Unless you smoke meth, do not stay here!

I booked a hotel in this property. After all the reviews, I decided to give it a try and see for my self. It was terrible, nasty, dump, old, dangerous, and bad customer service. Nothing good I can say about this hotel except it is across from the beach. While we were checking in, a cop was there. This lady trying to sell us something. The lady who checked us in is carrying a baby walking back and forth. The hotel is a total dump period. It needs to buldoze to the ground. Disgusting place.

It is nasty! There was a huge roach bug in our room and the guy said it was a Palmetto bug and it was a roach clearly. My grandma was charging her iPad and the electricity outlet fried her battery and they wouldn't pay for it! We payed $150 for a very crappy room! The lady that worked there was always dressed inappropriatly and was never in the office, you could never find her. They were renovating at night and kept us up from about 11 pm through the rest of the night! The atm or wifi never worked! The people that worked there were shut up in there part of the motel! We had a lot more than 3 in our room and they only gave us three towels and the towels were still wet! They didn't even furnish soap,hair dryers, or tooth paste.

There's no words to say how AWFUL this place was. My mom and I decided last minute to stay over night in pcb for Memorial Day weekend. We booked the room through Expedia because it was cheap and right across the street from the beach. But it's so true that you get what you pay for! We got to the hotel around 5pm and tried to go into the office but it was locked. We noticed a sign saying "call this number to check in" so obviously the owner lives near by and doesn't stay in the office... Weird. So we call and say we have a reservation and he said Expedia overbooked then and he has no rooms. We panicked because it's Memorial Day and what hotel is going to have an opening?! He said ok I do have one and he showed up to the office 5 minutes later. I will say that he did warn us that the room "was not finished" but we could look at it. He opened the door and it was something like you see in a movie. The bed was just a box spring and a mattress on the floor. The floor was concrete with no carpet. The window was covered by an old gold sheet and a light bulb sticking out of it? And a tiny little bathroom and toilet. I didn't even want to walk into the room. We thanked him for showing us and went on our way. Granted I didn't get to see an actual room that was "ready" but what I did see what BAD. I'll never use Expedia again and I will make sure to look throughly at photos and call for confirmation!

I only gave them 1 star because it won't let me leave zero. We booked 2 nights at this hotel last week. Tried to call all day the day we arrived to let them know we'd be just a little late getting there (8:00pm), but never got an answer. When we did arrive, the office was locked. There were signs with 2 different phone numbers on them saying that they were on site and to call to check in. We tried for an HOUR to get them on the phone. No answers and the voice mail boxes were full. We had to find another hotel and put a hold on my credit card so they couldn't charge me. Terrible customer service!

This is one of the worst places I've ever stayed. One of my rooms air conditioners NEVER worked. There was water constantly on the rooms floor and wall. The maid was also the maintenance, and the strong odor of MARIJUANA even from the guy that checked me in was overwhelming. As a veteran law enforcement officer myself I got an instant horrible headache from the odor. This place is horrible for the hundreds I had to pay to stay! I will NEVER recommend this place or stay EVER again.THERE IS NO WAY IN HELL! The Florida cops need to seriously bust the marijuana problem here. DON'T STAY HERE PLEASE!

absolutely the worst room I've ever rented in my life! filthy in every corner never Swept, never cleaned. No maid service at all. dirty sheets, dirty oven, dirty sink, dirty, dirty, dirty everywhere! I guess you get what you pay for it was very cheap. we were on a tight budget as it was our wedding trip. don't stay here. drag activity right outside the room. I was propositioned every time I walked outside, the so called maid even asked me if I wanted to make money having sex with men!!!! dangerous place don't take your family here.

This is a great little mom n pop older style motel located right across from beach access. Its on the quieter end of the beach. Great for families, retirees; spring breakers have a lot of free access but it is a little bit far from the main Club scene. The couple that maintains it, takes good care of you. Best part is you can park right in front of your room. No hassle with elevators and stairs etc. The pool is very nice and a lot of fun. There is also an ATM and ice-machine on site, wi-fi access and nicely equipped rooms. You wont miss the stuffy high-rise hotel scene at all. Its great location for a very decent price.

This could be a great place to stay but no one ever answers the phone from the office, there are not attendants on grounds for repairs or even just needing a few towels. There is a sign to contact a certain room number and when I did they had lost the keys and the manager on duty was not even there. The rooms are too expensive for weekly rates compared to the more upgraded places to stay on PCB. I hate to see a motel in a nice location go to the dogs. If management does not step it up then they will be out of business soon.
