Let me say the the room was very acceptable...clean..comfy with a great view of the Gulf. The issue is with smoking rooms..we do not smoke...we were put into a smoking room. when we asked to be moved we were told that since we booked on a travel website we could not be guaranteed a non smoking room. The only guarantee... More

My husband and I picked this place for a mini vacation. We were very pleased with our stay. The hotel is older and the decor is dated, but for the price of the room and location it absolutely cannot be beat! We had a suite with a mini kitchen and the living area over looked the gulf and pool below.... More

Wonderful place to stay. Great view, clean, and close to great places to eat and shop. All rooms are beach front rooms. And there are balconies by your door and you can see the parking lot and see your car if u want. But they also had security there walking around the parking lot and around the hotel. The location...

Overall I will give this property a 2.5 out of 5 rating. My complaint [s] are centered around the bath and kitchen. Floor tiles are chipped/cracked by people dropping pots/pans on the floor. The bath was dingy and didn't have proper ventilation. The oven was extremely dirty but we used it anyway. The kitchen sink drained very slowly. The beds... More

Although we loved the location of this motel, and the beautiful views from our balcony, our room was never cleaned! We left our room at about 9 a.m. for a long walk on the beach to the pier and spent almost all day at the outdoor mall. When we returned at about 3:30 p.m., our room was just as we... More

Picked this place because the price was better than most of the high rises, and it was right on the beach. The location is on west end, but we still were able to walk the beach to the pier, and found Hoffbrau Haus, where we had a nice beer and pretzel before walking back to the hotel. The staff is...
