Not much to say about this place. It was OK for a last minute motel.

When my 15 year old son and I pulled into the parking lot he said "Mom this is ghetto. Please tell me we won't stay here" He didn't feel safe and neither did I . I wish I had known it's not a good neighborhood. There were guests (sketchy looking people) hanging out in the parking lot outside their room. We didn't even get out of the car. We left, knowing the $85 room charge was non-refundable. It wasn't worth it. Take note that we did not get out of the car, but Orbitz requires answers for hotel staff, room cleanliness and room comfort. We did not see this so I can't really rate it.

The room was ok. Carpet looked old, and the refrigerator had rust on the door, otherwise nice room.

Trip started out disappointing when we realized it was not in the heart of downtown, in fact we had to take a taxi since it wasn't even walking distance. Brisk walk to the beach? Not even and if you were to walk it would 1st be through a shady are where it didn't even seem safe for 2 woman. 2nd the hotel double charged us and it took almost 2 hours on the phone with [...] for the hotel to figure out they were wrong, now we have to wait at least 5 days for a credit but have 2 posted charges, not good when you live paycheck to paycheck. 3rd I was nearly attacked by a dog of one of the hotels residents in the parking lot. So all in all it was a terrible trip and we will never go back to this yucky and unprofessional facility. [...]

Hello, We understand your concerns about the area, but I assure you this is a safe place and we have never had any issues. We do have cameras facing the front, back and facing all room doors therefore we can keep a close eye out for any activity. We do frequently walk around the property and in the back of the motel to make sure there are no unwanted visitors or unwanted activity. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope you will reconsider. As far as our rooms go we have photos online and we are newly renovated with full size steel appliances and new carpet and beds along with a nice 60" tv.
