This is the only place to stay this close to the beach that is under 100 dollars. The staff is awesome and their very own restaurant is amazing! the rooms were very nice, clean and had a sense of home to it. Big screen TVs, with nice furniture. Only thing I didnt like was the pillows were not like mine... More

The review of this location is totally deceptive. This hotel is gorgeous to look at on the internet. However when I arrived on 29 April 2015 at approximately 5pm I was slapped in the face with a strong swift of smoke and stale order in the lounge area. The hotel looks like a scene from the 1960. The room had... More

After reading the other reviews, I was a little nervous about staying at this hotel. Not so. We had a wonderful time. The room was large and very clean. We spent an afternoon at the pool and it was great. The breakfast was eggs, biscuits, toast muffins, little donuts, cereal, juice, milk and coffee. Everything was warm and good. My... More

The breakfast suck. The bathroom had mole on the ceiling. The wifi suck also. Won't stay again there. The people that work at the motel was nice and friendly. They was also very helpful. They need to replace the pool furniture. Most of the pool furniture was broken.

Wonderful location, great staff and service. Needs we're comfortable and room was clean. Older building could use some upgrades, but not too bad. Breakfast was included, but bring your own, theirs sucked!! No variety, cold and not good.

We checked in to 3 rooms, one of which (room 521) wasn't fit for purpose as the ceiling was falling in and water was dripping down on the bed. I rang the front desk and asked if the room could be changed and I was offered 'the option' to leave with no charge!!! There were no other rooms available. After... More

This hotel was actually better than what I expected. The 3rd floor pool was nice. The room was clean. There is an elevator contrary to previous reviews. Also, the staff was great. Brittany at the front desk was very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

This motel was one high for one night although I know it's spring break weekend I ran across cheaper hotels that were booked. Secondly, the "free HOT complimentary breakfast" wasn't so hot there wasn't anything there besides a rude server who fixes cold eggs and biscuits, flat juices,OLD cereal and grits thst you have to use hot water on coffee...

I've stayed in really nice hotels and I've stayed in the dumpiest of dump motels...I'm not picky. As long as there's a bed and a toilet and a shower I'm generally happy. I found this place to be absolutely fine...and wonderful for the price! It's conveniently located right across from the beach for about 1/2 the price of the hotels... More

Terrible service, dirty room, mold on the ceiling, wifi non functioning. Charged $149 for a over night stay. Said they ran out of pillows??? Rude clerk at the front, oh and be sure to check out before 9 am if you want that free breakfast. Will never do that again. Bad😝
