From the outside it looks ok, but inside...the bathroom and kitchenette are from the 60's, the room safes don't work, the elevator feels like the floor is going to cave in and the wood deck around the pool is splintered from lack of maintenance. Regulars told me that they have watched the property go downhill under the current owners, who... More

The clerk behind the desk was very entertaining and reminded us of the soup Nazi with all the rules. NO SMOKING, NO RENT! We got a lot of laughs out of all the signs in the room. Our favorite sign said, Love is....using the towels in your room only not at the pool/beach areas. Leaving them here when checking out.... More

Hey look. This place is not the Hilton or anything even remotely close, but you know what you’re getting into before you swipe your card. It’s outdated, there are a million rules, and it kind of looks like you’re going to find Norman Bates standing in the bathroom after your shower. However, it wasn’t the worst place that I’ve ever...

Booked in here as had trouble finding anywhere else. Our double room had a wonderful view of the beach and the bed was comfortable. Everything else was ghastly, badly maintained, uncared for. I didn't want to walk on the carpet as it looked dirty. Chipped sink, old worn bath with shower. The list of do's and don't s was endless.... More

We called hours before we were to arrive in the area to reserve a room and inquire about rates. We were quoted a price for two adults only and told they would not reserve a room in advance even with a credit card, but to call when we were about 20 minutes away. We called back and the woman who... More

They give you a list of rules when you check in (rules filled an 8 1/2x11 piece of paper), ask for drivers license of all guests. They didn't keep the hours posted for the office, when we needed someone there was no one there, same when we checked out. No towels provided for pool area. According to "the rules" no... More

We are a mature adult married couple.. We just checkd out today after a 3 night stay. We found the registration process to be an invasion of privacy by demanding a copy of the drivers license for every person that would be staying in our room. We were not allowed to have any guests, no exceptions! Persons under the age... More

Dirty room, scary elevator, the place needs updated, the rules were ridiculous, and we were treated like we were going to do something wrong. I will never stay there again, and wish we could have found another place so we could have left.

I was very surprised today when we checked out at 9:30, packed the car and went to breakfast. I had expected to come back to the beach after breakfast and found out that they would not allow us to leave our car in the EMPTY parking lot or use the pool since checkout is 10AM. I have stayed at several... More
