This hotel is cheaper than most for a good reason, it's awful. On checking in, the receptionist was unwelcoming to say the least, bordering on rude. Straight away it was pointed out that the rooms have a safe and this incurred an extra charge whether we intended to use it or not. So off to the room, dirty, shabby, broken... More

My sisters and I stayed here the day before our cruise departed Miami. The hotel was old and the rooms were mildew smelling. You feel like the hotel is right out of the movie psycho. There were bugs in my sisters bed and I doubt the sheets were even washed. I will note we were able to check in at... More

Pros: > We had good service; the ladies at the register were very nice and gave us more towels when we asked for some. > Very close to the beach; convenient location to a lot of local restaurants and shops. > The beds were actually pretty comfortably firm; I didn't wake up sore, and actually had good quality sleep. >...

Worst hotel my wife and I ever been. Dirty, our room had not been properly cleaned in ages. Found bad food under the bed and one of the mattress was full of cockroaches!!. Luckly the other bed was fine. The breakfast was minimal (just coffee and small packs of froot loops) You get far less of what you pay. Avoid... More

We booked this hotel because it was across the street from the beach and cheap. We also love vintage hotels. My advise would be to spend a little more money and go someplace else. This hotel is disgusting. The outside and lobby looked vintage and kinda cool, but that's where it stops. Our room was so nasty I wanted to... More

This was by far the worst hotel I've ever stayed in! The pictures are either from another place or decades old! Elevator, ice maker and anything else that runs off power doesn't work. We paid $185.00 for one night , week of New Years, so expected much more for the money!!!! The only plus the the ocean is across the... More

This shoddy and downbeat hotel is a disgrace. It lacks any character, the rooms are like prison cells and it is dirty. Our safe did not work but they insisted on charging us for it anyway. They speak very little English and employ rude staff. We asked to see a manager as things were so bad but in 4 days... More

The Hotel is very cool and it is well located in front of the beach, it is an old building that's why you can get a very good rate for your room night, it is very economic. I was surprised with the room # 400 located in the four floor balcony with a beautiful view of the ocean and the... More
