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

We stayed here for one night after our cruise prior to our flight back home. The hotel is ok has an elevator that you think you will be stuck in there. When we got there the reception man told us our room was not ready...we came straight from the ship around eleven oclock...so we sat there and then in half... More

There was nothing spectacular nor was there anything wrong with this hotel. My friend and I stayed here for an entire week this past May. The outside of the hotel isn't the prettiest, but the pictures of the insides of the rooms hold true. The rooms look like they have been remodeled not to long ago. You get a flat... More

The hotel is in bad shape. The room key is like the one we use in our bathrooms, they use a chain as a security measure, the bathroom is so small that a tall o big person hardly fits inside. The cable box is tied (literally) to the wall over the tv. The room walls looks like is in process... More

I've visited SJ many times as my port of departure and stay at this place mainly for the price and the people. It is an old building and the noise from the AC is horrible. By the time I've walked around, eaten and gamble to get rich I'm too tired to be bothered. It's nice to walk to a front... More

It is not worth $100 you pay for it. Rooms are small but not very clean. My wife did not want to use the bathroom. As soon as we went in, my son said it was the Bates Motel. The TV was not working. I went to get some water but the vending machine ate my quarters. The stuff was... More

This is one of the best 2 star hotels that I have stayed at while vacationing or through the military. This is a popular place for spring break and college students. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. It is just steps away from 4 and 5 star hotels, the beach, restaurants, Walgreens, grocery store and casinos. They are remodeling.... More

Coral by the Sea is a basic hotel at a decent price. Nothing fancy by any means. Close to the airport. Bed was comfortable. The phone in the room however was useless to even call the front desk for the noise in the line due to a very old handset cord and there was only 1 outlet in the whole... More
