Clean convenient quiet

Nice quiet clean place

Very quaint. Beautiful area. Close to beach. However- if you are in the small room with glass doors, you hear EVERYTHING! Talking, slamming doors, every word from neighbors room. Did not get a good nights sleep.

The property is simple to access and is in a fantastic location central to restaurants and shops. Not far to the beach. The rooms are clean and there’s plenty of space. We were very comfortable and while we were aware of the other guests we weren’t bothered. Also the staff is very helpful if anything is needed. Just a text away.

A beautiful cozy apartment in a great location.

Cottage was smaller than I expected. Only one sitting area. Patio was not clean when we arrived. No see ums made porch unusable. The management was responsive and the overall cleanliness was excellent.

Check in is terrible, no soap, no heat, no maid service, tight parking

This is the FIRST motel/hotel property I have ever stayed in (and there have been many) that did not have an ice machine. I had to drive 10 miles at midnight to get ice. Very strange..no ice.

Bang for your buck in terms of the physical space. Parking lot is small and fills up quick, but owner was quick to respond when asked where extra parking was. Amenities only included shampoo and bar soap, but plenty of beach towels to use as well as beach supplies. Location was decent, about 2 blocks to the beach.

Rooms were kinda confusing to find but I just called and lady walked me through til I got inside. Felt more secluded than other places near by. Loved the private patio.

Even when I turned the AC off in my unit, it was still too cold.

Location was perfect. Clean and comfortable. Very pleased.

We loved the location which was very close to the beach and within walking distance to restaurants and shops. Our room was fairly clean, there was a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker, but no coffee available. Luckily, there were a few places to buy fresh brewed coffee in St. Armand's Circle. The bathroom didn't have any complimentary shampoo/conditioner so be sure to bring your own. The cable TV never worked and the ceiling fan's chain broke so we couldn't turn it back on after trying to change the speed. Having the fan on helped so we didn't have to blast the air conditioner. Lastly, the "real icing on the cake" was when we came back from dinner at night and turned on the lights...several roaches went scattering about on the floor. Thank goodness that none of our bags had been on the floor for the last two nights! That was the last straw and our last night staying there.

A/C didn’t work the first night. They said he would send someone out. Never saw anyone. I texted him a couple more times with no response, then my response was he himself would control it and it should cool down soon. About 11pm it was cool enough to sleep. Next day I left till about 5pm came back to room and AC did not work again.. I texted the number again because there isn’t a front desk or anyone here after 3pm. No response but the AC started again. He obviously controls when the AC goes on. Then at 1:15 am I wake up sweating. Yup!! My AC DIDNT work again. He could of controlled the temp, not sure. 72-75 degrees is way to warm to sleep. I texted again but not response. There are no clean towels to get, There are no clean sheets to get after 3pm. I wasn’t here between 9-3, so I didn’t get clean linens. Closet and bathroom floor were dirty. I was so excited to stay here, but it was a horrible stay. I paid over $249.00 for 2 nights. If you would like service, AC and clean linens don’t stay here.

The hotel was nice, we lucked into getting a spacious room with a kitchen & living area, the price was right & the location is fantastic - walking distance to the beach and to all kinds of shops & restaurants.

Great location. You can park your car and have an easy walk to the shops and restaurants of St. Armand’s Circle, as well as to the beach. Funky place that has seen better days, but clean and quiet.
