Trip advisor had us a litttle concerned prior to our arrival. I can now say how happy we were with our stay. The staff was amazing with every request. The room was great and clean. I am sure we could have paid a heck of alot more money and got a whole lot more of bells and whistles down the... More

I have to say that while this hotel is not the "Ritz" my daughter (11 years old ) and myself were quite comfortable and never once did we feel unsafe or annoyed by the bar next door. Yes you could hear the music , but you are only there to sleep and for the most part , you are so... More

Really, the only good things about this motel was it was cheap and it was clean. The staff seemed friendly enough, but still used an archaic check-in/out system. It was nice to have a little kitchenette in the room. The downside is that It sits right next to a bar with live music, and an intersection of three busy streets.... More

This hotel is centrally located and close to beach. The hotel is old and is in need of renovation. Air condition was held up by a brace outside room - a table was in the closet dont know where it was suppose to go because there is no living room. Did find a spider under the sheets even though it... More

I have to say, I enjoyed my single night stay here, if only because I felt as if I had entered some sort of timewarp and was being afforded the opportunity to experience 1970's American motel accommodation. I really did like the quirkiness of the place. Here are some highlights: - Pink painted walls with illuminated sign - Chaotic-looking reception... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Some friends and I stayed for a night and really liked it. It is an older hotel but the staff is very friendly and they do what they can. It is not a luxury place but it is perfect for a beach getaway. The location is nice and close to everything. It... More

The reviews of this place were too nice..... For lack of a better word it was a dump. End tables meant for indoor use were used outside, clutter around the ice machine. Inside was so outdated, mattress was old and lumpy as well the pillows. Linens (bed & bath) were dingy and tattered and we had one washcloth in our... More

I have investigated your complaints. At no time - except for your writing this review - did you bring this to my attention. While minor, if you had I would of responded by providing you with a nicer room. I simply do not believe or agree about huge dust balls and cleanliness. Our maid has been here for 16 years,... More

I checked out of this motel yesterday a day earlier than originally planned but glad I did. On arrival I was disappointed that the motel was very old fashioned looking with very basic amenities. All the furniture was old and the two double beds were very small. I did think that for $85 per night there would at least be... More

Thank you for feedback. I am aware of the situation with problem guests - I should have asked them to leave earlier. My oversight. This is also why we close the pool at night. KC had trusted a guest to close the pool and they took advantage of and abused the situation. Sad shame - but few spoil a good... More
