I had a wonderful time here with my significant other. This is our 2nd time coming back and it for sure won't be the last! We got the oceanfront king bedroom and we loved it so much. It was perfect for our getaway.

It has a great view and close to shops and restaurants. Absolutely wonderful place to stay for couples or families on a budget. Rooms are clean and comfortable. We loved it and hope to stay there again next summer.

I booked this on-line based on the number of rave reviews. I read some of the gripes but figured with such a wide variation that some people were just complainers. I can usually overlook shortcomings but this place is terrible. It's old, dirty, the towels and linens are thin and dingy, the corridors are dim lit, the elevator is nasty.... More

Our vacation was June 19-24, 2014. First I would love to say thank you to Carrie and William who was a big help to me and my family. When arrived there was issues with the room type. When I spoke with a form employee I was told something totally different from what was told to me upon arrival. I was... More

Rooms were dirty, floor and inside of mini fridge had stains. Banister was loose, lock to balcony door was broken and had been rigged with some bar that you pull up when you want to step outside. Elevator was out of order. I will say front desk staff were courteous and gave us a full refund.

After weeks of reviews and consideration, we made reservations for an ocean view King Standard room which to our surprise and (what we thought) joy,was upgraded to a ocean view King Suite. Well, we were disgusted immediately due to the hair balls we found on the couch, food on dining chairs, food left on stove, hair in the bed, floors... More

I planned my vacation a month and a half in advance. Turned down pretty decent rates at Best Western to stay here and very disappointed. We stayed 3 nights and 4 days. Never received a clean towel or rag, trash was never taken out(except for our own housekeeping ability), and the floors left a black film over all of our... More
