Shower was ok ; water pressure fine. Absolutely ridiculous the parking situation. Additional parking block away when you had to pay... More

This rat hole they call a hotel should be condemned...It smelled, very filthy, what appeared. To be body fluids on the walls. Don't let the photos deceive you. They have to be photos shopped. This is by far the worst hotel that I ever stayed at.

Very old and moldy resort. The room we were in had a great view of the ocean but that was the only good point this place had. We also had to wait till after 4:ooPm till our room was ready. We had the 1 bedroom suit which had no towels to do any dishes. Had a dishwasher but no soap... More

We were greeted by a fellow lodger announcing to us "You're entering the gates of Hell". It got worse from there. Unbelievably nasty room, moved us the next day to a room that didn't scare the bageegees out of us. Still nasty. Booked thru Alaska Airlines via Orbitz, no refund and we will never return. Nasty nasty nasty. I called... More

I stayed here in 2008 with My college swimteam and nothing has changed. It's a basic motel that is just barely clean. If your on a budget its across the street from the beach , walking distance to the area happenings and you do have a wonderful view. No bed bugs but we saw roaches, the paint is awful, there...

Horrible, terrible, disgusting and really bad service. The young woman in the reception almost hit me because I was complaining why we have to wait more than 20 min after 3pm to get our room if we made the reservation like 1 month before and other people that came after us received the room easily and in less than 2...

Stayed here with my husband and our young daughter. Parking was on the street, and not secure. The room was filthy and run down, and we really didn't want to stay - but due to arriving late we had to stay there the night. Huge mistake! TOILET leaked (disguising) and my husband got bit by a huge bug that he... More

Nasty. Nasty. Nasty.... Room was probably the most disgusting I've seen. Black mold everywhere, tin foil in the light fixtures and sheets that looked like they haven't been changed in months. Door would not lock and the desk clerk rude as hell.

This is a negative 5 star place to stay. Our flight was delayed and when we arrived we had to park on the street to check in. While waiting 30 minutes for someone to come to the office, we called 3 different numbers numerous times with no one answering and earned a parking ticket to boot. When the desk clerk... More
