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

I booked this hotel knowing they type of negative reviews it has already gotten, but I needed a place to stay and the price was okay, but it was all about location! location! the view from the hotel was SUPER nice and great location...literally a 30 sec walk to the beautiful beach. The hotel it self was a disaster! and... 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 The website photos extremely outdated.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

We booked knowing this hotel would be outdated. You pay for location. But we paid $550 for 2 nights. You would think for that price you would get towels in your room, maid service, and a garbage can, but not here. We had towels (only 3 for 4 people) for about 10 hours. Then, the while we were out in... More

What's worse than the grossest room imaginable, with bodily liquids of an unknown source on the bed and walls, cochroaches and no locks on the door? Having an incompetent staff to just look at you while you are in distraught. This place is for murderers and the lowest of the low hookers. Don't not staff here if you value any... More

It's definitely a throwback to stay at the Avalon!!!! Even thought it isn't by any modern standards a fancy place it is for the most part well kept and clean. Check in was quick and easy and the staff was pleasant enough. Staying here feels like we went back in a time machine into the 60's and it's quite a... More

This place shouldn't be considered a hotel. Absolutely disgusting.I wish there was an option for zero stars. When we got to the door of our room, I cried. This is the place that horror movies take place in. Everything was filthy. Dirt everywhere. Bed unmade. Kitchen was disgusting and believe it or not I think this was one of the... More
