This motel was pretty good, staff were excellent, very accommodating and helpful! The room was a good size but a bit outdated, it was good for the price though and I would stay again. Location was excellent, really easy walk to main restaurants / beach.

Stayed here to attend Gulfstream Park horse track and casino. Would not recommended that anyone else stay this far north to visit the track. Terrible traffic made the trip troublesome. Motel is severely outdated. Feel for the cleaning staff, the age of the property makes it impossible to give it the appearance of sanitary. Would never stay here with the... More

This place was not good. The room had a musty odor. Rust was on the sink, microwave & tub. Shower handles were not attached. Pillowcases were dingy. The tv was a BIG back 15'..(old school). The air conditioner was at a set temp. The pool looked cloudy! AND the housekeeper acted as if she had an attitude when we asked... More

I would give this place a 2.5 if I could. Knowing you have booked at a lower-end place you lower your expectations. The reason I have given it a poor rating vs the average rating is that I believe you can still book for inexpensive accommodations (with no amenities) without it having to be dirty and run down. I have... More

I booked this hotel due to it's location and price. Closer to the time we were due to stay here, I started to read some bad reviews, and wondered if I'd done the right thing. There was nothing to worry about. The hotel is one street away from the fantastic beach, and 10 minute's walk from lots of bars and... More

The room smelled of mold. The bathroom was a disaster, no stoppers (bath/sink).The counter was 4 legged chrome with a yellow arborite top( 50"s). The towels were white, but the sheets were a variety of grey and beige whites, and very limp. I felt the springs in the thin mattress. The kitchenette was unuseable. The stovetop was all rusted and... More

Date of stay Dec 14th 2011- Dec 18th 2011 We booked in advance using one of the hotel web-sites (which said there was only one room left, so clearly popular) and got the King Studio for 4 nights pre-cruise. When we arrived, we were upgraded free of charge to the King apartment, with separate lounge/dining area and full kitchen on... More

The room didn't smell bad and the room did not seem dirty. However the bedding was very stained and uncomfortable and the bed was very hard.

Do not stay here. I've stayed in old run down military barracks better than this place. Customer service: Haha what customer service? Cleanliness: if you call ratty bedding, a dirty bathroom, yucky kitchenett (with a sign that says "use at your own risk"), pealing paint, dirty tile floors, and an odor similar to urinal cakes clean...then you shouldn't have a...

Old, dirty rooms with paint peeling from the walls. Our room was mouldy and smelly, had to wash all of our clothes two times when we got home to get the smell out! The AC didn't work when we got there, got it fixed by pulling in out of the wall and putting another old AC in leaving holes between... More
