This place needs to be tore down and rebuilt that's about all there is to it. It's amazing this place even accepts people's money. I stayed for one night and it was the longest night of my life I probably slept for an hour, probably not even that long DO NOT STAY!!!!

Rooms were out of date noise was horrible!! Staff was showing intoxicated customers rooms for rent at 3am and were extremely loud. Not to mention the filth. I have been itchy since leaving there. Many better hotels along the strip for a few extra dollars

this hotel offers good value. The location is great being right on the beach. Rooms are spacious (at least the one we had was). We enjoyed the beach location. Sitting in the evening with a drink watching folks on the beach. Very relaxing.

We went down for Biketoberfest 2013 and my buddy made the reservations. Never again will I let him do that, this place is a wreck! We stayed in a room fairly close to the indoor pool and front desk area and it wasn't very good. We did experience the ant issue as so many others have mentioned. Also the downstairs... More

Stayed 3 nights here for the Daytona 500. Knew we wouldn't be spending a lot of time in the room so we went the cheap route. Don't think i'll ever do that again. I left the lights on from the time of my arrival until i left, to keep the critters hiding. A buddy of mine didn't, and had to... More

The hotel was actually pretty bad. We stayed there over Valentine's weekend, as a romantic weekend getaway. So glad I brought my own sheets, pillows and comforter! Its under new ownership, and hopefully when they renovate it, they also renovate their staff too! Maybe its because they can't/won't give or offer anything to accommodate you. There were ants in our... More
