There weren't many rooms available in town on a holiday weekend. I took the room here at a reasonable price. The room was clean, basic. Location to stores not the greatest. I was there hour or so early. Made me wait. When I did get the room a maid walked by and said it was ready a couple hours ago.... More

Compared to the prices in the area I guess this is a decent value, but I would imagine if you did some more searching you could find a nicer hotel for the price. First of all the location is pretty great..there is beach access right across the street, as well as plenty of restaurants close by. Now to the rooms...the... More

Just plain disgusting!!! Never again the whole room is dispicable. We didn't bother staying the night we took our losses and took off, the worst part was the dead cockroach in the kitchen,I don't UNDERSTAND how the authorities don't shot it down!!!

Stayed there 2 nights in the beginning of December. We arrived 2 hours before check in time and instead of having to wait (like in some places) our room was already waiting for us. Our room (# 109 in front of the pool) was clean and very spacious. Ocean is right across the street, they also have a pool. Nearest... More

Great price, outstanding customer service, love the location. Stayed there on October 31 and we arrived at 11 AM. Would have been more than happy just to have our bags held for us to get an early jump on a beautiful beach day. Sanjay, to our surprise, let us check into our room that early in the day.Thank you so... More

First the good: Spacious with nice courtyard and across the street from the ocean. The bad: The TV only got one channel, the kitchen and the bath both were run down and in need of some repairs. The pillows even when folded were flatter the a pancake. In a pinch situation this hotel was ok but I would NEVER stay... More

The place was disgusting. Cockroaches scuttled on the greasy kitchenette floor that probably hadn't been cleaned since 1978, the water wouldn't turn on save for a brown sludge, which prompted the shower to give up and die, and a greasy film on the pool prevented human habitation. The mattresses looked like they were bought in the 1980s and were home... More
