Love the location. Love the beach. Love the pool. Love the staff. It's a great little beach hotel that reminds me of my childhood stays in PCB. The prices are fair. The breakfast is a very nice bonus. Would definitely recommend this resort to anyone who is seeking a simple beach vacation.

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

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

Thank you for your business and your review. I'm so sorry to hear that your experience with us left more to be desired. We understand that a few of the floor tiles are chipped in some of the rooms. That is something we are currently working on. You absolutely should not have had a dirty stove/oven. This will be addressed... More

Funny you mention the couches, while we've only had them a few years we are actually replacing them this winter. They've served their purpose well but it's time for a newer model. It certainly gives us pleasure to maintain the look and function of our building as well as the furniture. Thank you for staying with us and thank you... 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
