Worst place ever! I don't think this place have been maintained since the seventies, and that's probably also when the photos on their website are taken... The staff was rude, everything was torn and worn. In our room the AC was rusty and broken, electric cable hang out from the wall and the toilet never stopped flushing. And the pool... More

The place is the set up for a hollywood thriller movie. Keep off this property. It is unsafe, on demolition, with barracades anouning the new property that will be build shorltly. Unable to see the sidewalk, or the beach. The rooms are old, destroyed and with a false sense of cleaning. The clorox smell would not let you breath, but... More

The service of the hotel was horrible. All the chairs from the room were stained and unclean. I found roaches on the kitchen counters and all over the kitchen area. The air conditioning wouldn't function properly. The cable from the air conditioner above the door was far too long that extended in the room that would've brought harm to any... More

If I could give this place below cero stars I would. First I must say that Jenny the front desk person is extremely rude and nasty! I was fooled by the pictures I had seen online before I reserved here, unfortunately I didn't read the reviews prior to booking. This place needs to be closed down, it is not worth... More

If you want to experience a last chance hotel on your way to skid row, try this place. The room looks like the scene of a violent crime: blood stains on the filthy carpet? The bathroom ceiling is peeling off, dripping dark stains on bathroom door, window blinds don't close. For a laugh, check out the office when you come... More

Worst customer service under the sun. The girl who checked me in was so rude I was in shock. She even hung up on my husband at one point when he was trying to get me and our toddler into our rooms after a long wait. She didn't even bother to tell me how to get to my rooms, even... More

Recently we stayed at his hotel during the 2015 Tortuga music festival. We loved the photos posted on the website; the hotel price was higher than we expected to pay but it was close to the beach. Upon our arrival, what the photos showed and the actual room was a complete different story. The website photos extremely outdated. They posted... More
