"The pictures of this place are VERY misleading. We checked in after 10pm, or we wouldn't have stayed 5 minutes in this room, much less one horrible night. The room was covered in wet, moldy carpet. There area under the air conditioner was the worst. You could not walk around without shoes because your feet would be black. There was... More

I am usually use to nice condos, so sure this isnt the place if you plan on laying around in nice roomy space with all the conveniences. But, for a short trip to enjoy my grandaughter and daughter and lay on the beach and have fun, it Worked. II did plan for the worse and took everything from mattress pad... More

Exterior Door was so cheap, a 3 year old could have karate chopped the door down! I think it was a interior door used as and exterior, large crack by the door handle which is also a lock, looks like someone may have had to break in to their room prior. We had a difficult time opening the door. I... More

We booked online. The hotel is nothing like the photo's shown online. The floors had rusty nails sticking up everywhere. I actually stepped on one right outside my door. The door knobs were about to fall off the door. The carpet in our room was so nasty you had to wear shoes. Cockroaches in the cabinets. Very loud up until... More

Our room wasn't bad. We had a great view. Wasn't dirty. Didn't have any loud noise at night. Obviously it isn't a 5 star motel but we didn't have any problems.but the motel isn't as bad as everyone made it out to be.i can't speak for the other rooms.but our wasn't bad.

Where to begin? Our room was infested with fleas, the ancient carpet was so filthy our feet turned black, the tiny window unit A/C couldn't cool the dirty room, and the fridge didn't work (not that you'd want to eat in this disgusting place). The hotel is in terrible shape altogether: the paint is old & chipping, decks and walkways... More

This place is the nastiest place ever!! I booked this motel because it seemed affordable and we had stayed in the same place last year and it was okay. This time it was disgusting.
