The shower doesn't work properly, bathroom too small, bedroom too old with primitive TV & furniture. It has mold and smells bad. The breakfast is served at the reception with just orange juice, and some pastries. They charge for service, beyond taxes. This hotel doesn't have the value we paid for.

It was a bad experience living in this motel. Rooms are not like the pictures shown on the Internet. Dirty pillows, blanket and bed sheets. Furniture is very old. Never booking this motel again. I do not recommend this motel to anyone.

Paid $150 per night for a double twin room that was infected with cockroaches. "Breakfast" was a quarter of a muffin with a one ounce cup of watered down orange juice. Sleeping on the beach would have been an upgrade. Fail to understand why this hotel is rated with 3 and 4 stars on some websites. It is disgusting.

We got a discount online thank goodness. Full price would be ridiculous. Quaint in an odd way, and great location, but not well kept up. Owner never smiled. Said BBQ on website but not there, so we had to go out. No apology. No orange juice at "breakfast".

Was a little late with getting a hotel here, most of the good hotels were already booked so we made the most of it. It is old, seems they do minimal upkeep or as needed. Granite floors in the bathroom, easy to clean, floor in the room on the grimy side. Continental breakfast (i.e. 2 kinds of muffins, cheerios/cornflakes, make... More

We stayed there overnight recently and the experience is terrible. It smells bad which is unacceptable. I asked to cancel the booking and the owner told me it isn't refundable. Moreover, there was a power outage around 10:30pm and nobody is available for the fix.

Cute from the outside but the inside does not match because the walls are thin, it is only average tidy and the rooms are very, very small! Friendly at check in and decent location as 10/15 minute stroll down to the lovely city center. However, you will find better for a similar price. Having said that for one night it... More

This motel was very poor. Tiny rooms, dreadful decor and query the state of cleanliness. The toilet did not flush properly. The complimentary breakfast was dreadful and really the only thing worth eating was the fresh fruit, a banana and apple. It was extraordinarily poor value for money. I wonder if these motels take advantage of overseas guests. The cost... More
