The elevator was filthy and the hallways were horrible! The beds were so low they were on the floor. The towels were still dirty! Hair was in places! The breakfast was... More

At first we were very scared to check-in to this hotel;however, we actually enjoyed our stay! The rooms are very simple, this hotel is strictly for people who are in town for site seeing not relaxing in your room. The food is great at the bar we even enjoyed some karaoke and fell in love with the MANGO margarita, only... More

Almost springtime, workers were trying to put some finishing touches on this aging motel, getting it ready for the busy season. Room looked very recently updated, clean. Service desk persons were very friendly. Very clean looking pool waiting for warm weather. Right across the street from the beach. Dish TV did not have NBC, maybe no CBS. A good room... More

The room was okay but wouldn't want to stay here for more than one or two nights. There was dirt and dust on the floor and we could hardly see out of the dirty windows. The Wi-Fi was in and out. While we were on the beach, our cell phone rang and it was the hotel calling us to move... More

there was remodeling going on but it does need updating. It was clean and does seem to be run by family. nothing wrong with that. The restaurant has good food and a very nice continental hot breakfast. Didn't see a bug in the 2 days we were there. I would go there again. No fitness center or room service

My wife and I arrived 1-24-14 for our anniversary and had booked this room a week prior. Upon our arrival as we were getting out of the car we starting hear skill saws and other various construction. I understand renovations have to be done, but these were whole floors being down with carpet padding hanging over the balconies. We immediately... More

This hotel is so outdated and the service is poor. My husband and I arrived April and the receptionist did not seem to know what she was doing. She had a child sitting behind her and she was too busy trying to get them to behave to acknowledge us fully. It took forever to even receive a receipt. There was... More

We stayed at this hotel a few years ago and it was very nice. Amazing the difference a few years makes. When we first walked in the room a strong chemical smell about knocked us down. Second I don't remember painted cinder block walls as interior decore . Room seem to be reasonably clean until early in the morning when... More

I was 1 of 5 guests in the hotel and it was definitely low season. There was some construction going on. The staff was friendly and helpful. Half the restaurants were closed until mid-December. This was off-season off-season. Beach Blvd is ocean side but hotel in on the other side of the street.
