I saw it online and it looked decent, not a resort type hotel but it looked clean and the pool seemed nice, and it was close to the beach. On arrival the place looked deserted, the rooms have the very minimum. Not even a bottle of water or plastic glass, no telephone. The bed has a base of cement and... More

Great Hotel for Spring Break, this is no the other if you are looking for relaxing and sleeping. At least on Spring Break this is not a quiet place. There is a Open bar during Spring Break so this mainly for College Kids.

Our family of 4 selected this hotel because it was close to the beach and reasonably priced. However the room was gross and filthy. The bedding had many stains. The walls should have been painted--10 years ago. There were fuzz balls hanging from the ceiling. The floors (tile) were so dirty that it forced us to wear shoes in the... More

Now, let me start with only my husband and I stayed here. No kids. It was super cheap and the bartenders were friendly and talkative. No elevator put a damper on lugging luggage to the huge room on the 3rd floor. I wanted a balcony and I kinda got one except there was no ocean view or scenery, it was... More

Don't and I mean don't book a reservation here. To start off, we were offered drugs and prostitutes on the first day we checked in. The next day, two Iphones were stolen from my brother in laws room and he's car was almost stolen. The security, staff, hotel manager and even maintance are all in it and when we asked... More

We arrived at our hotel at 10:30 am & we were told we would not be able to get our room until 2pm. Once we got our room we had to go with our luggage all the way to the 3rd floor on the stairs, no elevator. The wifi was very weak , the pool was shallow & full of... More

Why go It looks kind of like a whitewashed, minimum-security prison. Or a very elegant insane asylum. But it's just the hotel/nightclub Baja Cantina, filled with rowdy spring breakers wall-to-wall by 11 p.m. At the bottom of a hill, at the end of the nightclub strip, this four-story, U-shaped hotel hosts nightly bashes in the all-concrete courtyard on the first...

The service and the location was really what saved this place. The front desk was not all that great but the security guard at night and the bartender were really nice. They made me feel safe and that was what I was really looking for on my first visit in many years. The hotel is near to some of the... More
