Great location. Easy walking to all the attractions and restaurants. Main complaint is there was a lot of noise at night.

I’ve stayed there many many times over the last 20 years because of the convenience. They charge a 5 star price for a 1 star hotel.

Rooms were dirty upon arrival. Zero trash or room service while there. They wouldn’t even take our dirty towels or give us new trash bags. The front desk service ignored me several times while trying to purchase extra amenities, and the maids were rude when asked about getting an extra bag. Stayed before but will not again.

NOTHING

The pictures on the web are nothing like what it looks like today. Very outdated and old. Mold in the bathroom, the door scrapped the floor with hair stuck underneath, the tub was dirty and the entire floor was nasty. The bed mattress had stains all over it. This is in no way a $300 a night hotel/motel. Stay anywhere but here. Made our vacation horrible. Would never stay here again. Spend your money elsewhere.

They provided free paddle boards to the bay out back.

Sandy rooms and moldy bathroom. No housekeeping during stay. Location is main and only benefit and its one of the best on the beach for that.

Rooms were not clean.....need a thorough cleaning and some hooks or rack in the bathroom would be nice.

Very old property. Paid for a hotel for a motel pretty much. Location is excellent. The rooms and bed is decent. The bathroom was rusty and old. Breakfast options were okay. Everything was old and definitely not going to stay here again.

Right on the beach, close to restaurants, goofy golf, bike rentals, very good location,

I like the location

Online pictures are very deceiving. The facility is dirty and nasty with trash everywhere. Staff not friendly. Rooms were dirty and not well kept. Sink still had residual tooth paste al over it from the previous guest and nothing was wiped down. After one night we left and got another hotel room. Awful experience and would never recommend.

They have a firepit area that was nice in the evening and free use of Kayaks and bikes

Close to the beach. Did not like being across from bar/lounge. Loud music.

There is only one way I can describe this hotel - DISGUSTING! If you are looking for a place to take your family for a relaxing vacation avoid this hotel. From dark to yellowish spots on the sheets, dust all over the place, to spider webs on the shower tub, this is perhaps the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. The pictures they show here are no where near the actual condition of the hotel.

Right across the street from the beach. A good bargain for the location.
