First do not be fooled, this same hotel is called "Ocean Surf Hotel" too, and this place is horrible! The pictures displayed do not match how the hotel actually looks. The receptionists are rude, the rooms are tiny, and it is not safe. The hotel is run down, and dirty. Also smells very musky, for breakfast they serve toast, tiny... More

A terrible, run-down old hotel! The people at reception could either not speak English or were very unfriendly. It looked like instead of cleaning, they simply painted over the dirt! The carpet was so dirty, I always wore shoes and was afraid to look under the beds'!!! Our room was small with old furniture and not very clean. The bathroom... More

No bright lights in the room; a decade old blankets i think on the bed. My friend also stayed in another room as couple in... More

My husband and went there for a single night, and I ran out at sunrise. The bathroom was disgusting. Mildew all over. The carpet was just nasty. We paid $80.00 plus tax and the elevator doesn't even work. The place smells old and rusty. Don't waist your money there. Pay a little be more and stay at a more humane... More

Just stayed for one night. Price is good, location is excellent, beach is just across the street. From the inside hotel looks kind of cute, if you like retro. Unfortunately inside needs some attention. Very bad service, no cleaning at all, waiting almost two hours for room (after check in) and very confused receptionist. Also everywhere smells cigarettes even if... More
