I tried to very upbeat in in my last review. No, it's not and ever get to be a Ritz Carlton unless the building is razed, and replaced with a new one. The first year I was there, I was really surprised because I had so few complaints about my room. I live in Florida and have lived to streets... More

This is the 6th visit I have made to this hotel. And honestly, the only reason I return each year is that I meet up with a group of people. It is affordable for ocean front rooms in South Florida and there is little else positive that can be said. It is in a good location with a nice beach... More

I was with a group that comes back every year. There were huge rips in the carpeting in my room. The shower curtain rod was barely hanging on by a thread. We were promised an ocean view room and did not get it even tho we booked in October for a stay in January. The stairwell smelled like a cross... More

I stayed here as a part of a group in January 2015. We stay here every year because of the excellent location (everything is walkable and the beach is great). We always have issues with lost reservations, and check in takes forever (literally 10-15 minutes per room when other hotels take about 3). I guess at this point I am... More

First of all, the desk staff requires a great deal more training on how to book people in and how to make reservations. I was with a large group, had booked back in October 2014 for January 2015. I called 3 different times to confirm as there have been issues past years. Was told my room would be ready, no... More

Beautiful view and beach. Shabby motel. They are still renovating. Nice to see the Tiki and grill open. Andrew the cook was a great guy. Excellent service. They have along way to go but I will enjoy the price until then. Once they are at hotel standards I will be priced out I'm sure.

I'd give zero stars if that was an option. stayed between 1/16-1/19 of this year with the Chapter 2 group. I have stayed in the hotel 4 times, per a group I stay with yearly. They have never gotten everything right with each visit. But I gave them the benefit of the doubt each time, not now. Went to check... More

yuk, yuk yuk. sticky carpets, staines (big ones) on sheets, dirty windows, broken furniture, urine soaked stairwells, nails sticking out of door. We had reserved via an internet booking site (not this one). We booked in at reception, took one look at the rooms and walked straight back out again and found somewhere much more suited to the lovely town... More
