I brought the family and had a wonderful time. The staff was great and helpful. Being able to bring our dog Lucy was great. She is part of the family. Having a dining area close is also very helpful. Great time!

Everything great. Nice pool, nice Tiki bar, live band at night. Close to The old downtown entertainment, great beach setting, great sunsets, great moon over the water. We love the place.. Steve and Bev .

We went in July for family vacation. We have a 10 and 8 yr old. They never wanted to leave. You have everything you need for adults and kids at the motel. Yes it's outdated but who cares. Everyone was so friendly from staff to all the locals. My husband and I met a local through our kids playing on... More

Our first night stay we had a problem with the room, air conditioner was leaking inside the room and the floor was wet, but we went to front desk and they up graded our room at no extra charge, and they kept apologizing to us. Had house keeping everyday, anything we needed they got for us. Over all great place... More

I wanted something with local flavor - no chain. I heard good things about the restaurant on the property from locals I met at the Mexican restaurant Peppers, but it was closed when I booked in after 10 PM. The hotel was built in the 50s and used to be a Days Inn. The night clerk was helpful. I felt... More

Hotel is about 15 minutes from the beach. There is very little sandy area. Didn't go to the pool but did look nice. Had a non-smoking room and when I opened the door I could smell the smoke. Accessories were old and rusty. Nothing I couldn't live with but next time I think I will go closer to the beach... More

Everytime we come to Panama, we stay on the island. The woman that checks us in is always the same, and she remembers us each time. The rooms arent the best, but for the price, they are well worth it. The kids have a place to place and we can sit on the edge of the water and relax. Will... More

This place was gross. The reviews were ridiculously good when we booked. I see now that people are flooding the site with similar stories to ours. Our first room was an immediate disappointment. It was dank and dark like an old basement. Everything was filthy and the carpet was wet; not damp, wet. The hotel clerk switched us to an... More
