The door doesn't close tight, my bathroom window doesn't open, can't adjust the A/C, can't open the shades on the windows. But it's a bed and I can sleep so I'm good. They change the sheets and towels everyday and the lights work. It's not the Hilton.

If you don't care too much about services and amenities and you just need a bed and a shower, this place will do. It's not all that pretty. The breakfast at the dinner in the hotel wasn't very good at all; dry, flavorless, and I'm Puerto Rican so it was a disappointment. There are other, better restaurants near by though.... More

Dirty, smelly, old and dated. And did I say dirty? We stayed for one night, 2 rooms. Paid a little over $200 per room, and trying to just forget this hotel ever happened to us. The "best" part was when we wanted to buy some water bottles and the vending machine was broken. So we were directed by the receptionist... More

Our experience at Coral by the Sea was FANTASTIC! I don't know what everybody else was reviewing, but you all had me worried...I travelled with my family (2 adults, 6 kids) and we had the best experience: the rooms were perfect, nicely decorated, A/C, plenty of hot water, towels, soap/shampoo, daily housekeeping, etc., etc. The staff was friendly, the diner...

Beds are uncomfortable. Everything looks dirty. Bathroom smelled like urine. Elevator barely works. There are better places to stay for around the same price. The room had two pillows and when we asked the front desk agent for two more he seemed indignant. He said he didn't have access to pillows and had to call security to get more pillows... More

This place is a dump. Dont waste your money. Only slightly warm water for showers. No maid service. So no clean towels and no one knows where to get them. Stay away. Old hotel no upkeep. Elevator might work if you are lucky.

We stayed at this hotel prior to our cruise. It truly is a low budget hotel. The receptionist was nice and accommodating. The room was small, freezing (we could not adjust the thermostat because we could not find it), the towels were very worn, we could not get the tv to work, and the ice machine was filthy. We did...

I cancelled my reservation 3 months before travelling because I changed my plans. However, I later discovered that they had in fact charged my credit card. Multiple phone calls and emails 6 weeks later and still no joy in even getting to talk to someone who can do something about it. Apparently people do not work in the office during... More

If I were a frog, I would have rather slept on a Lilly pad. This place is a dump. It has no hot showers, and is close enough to be Section 8 material that you have to close the window in the bathroom to get it cool. $90 dollars is not good price for this dump. It's front desk had... More
