I booked two rooms for a family wedding in the area. First off the only elevator was under repair. My father asked for a first floor room due to heart lung condition. He was told they only had top floor and he would have to walk the stairs. The rooms were dirty and smelled of cigarettes even though they were... More

My family and I travel here a few times a year for a beach getaway. Very nice location and walking distance to shops and places to eat. The accommodations are nice, but nothing fancy. Quick drive to the beach and downtown area for more shopping.

With a last minute booking during memorial weekend, Troy and staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The hotel, as well as the room, was very clean and well maintained. I loved the balcony with the great view and can't forget to mention that the bed was very comfortable. They have a great breakfast buffet that goes on until 10... More

My husband and I love coming here. It is in the perfect location, walking distance to all the bars and restaurants. The rooms are ok, I suggest upgrading to the 3rd floor. Jet tub and balcony with ocean view, can't beat that! The front desk crew are always inviting and helpful.

We recently stayed at this property for my nephew's wedding and coincidentally had a travel ball tournament nearby. We had a "suite" but it is not your typical suite offerings you would expect from other hotels. You enter the room, bed to the left, two sofa chairs to the right, and in the back is the second bed. The bathroom... More
