I can't find anything nice to day other than walking distance to the beach. The room had an odor. The refrigerator door would not close. I felt totally uncomfortable in the room but had to because we paid $200 and it was late. Never again.

Don't stay here for the rooms. They're old and outdated. Don't stay if you want your car damage and the employees to not say or do anything for you. The girl at the counter could not be more rude. Even called me a b----. And a manager who is not available, does not have set hours of any kind to... More

This hotel is close to the beach. It was reasonable priced compared to other local hotels and it was available at late notice. Other that that, nothing to recommend it. A hole in the shower cubicle wall. Rooms smell of perpetual damp. The refrigerator and micro wave worked and the coffee machine worked - once I fashioned a filter for... More

Sometimes it's best not to look at the reviews. If I had read the other reviews first, we would not have stayed. However, we did stay and it was fine. The room was clean, everything worked, good shower, decent linen, and the location is excellent. (Of course, it's a small island so a really poor location is hard to find.)... More

We went stayed no plans checked in room was fine. Now this in not top line place so if you're a spoiled person don't go here. Not nasty like other reviews no mold, bugs. Little out dated but fine for just the little you are there in the room. The pool was fine kids loved playing in. And didn't meet... More

PROS: Rates during the week were reasonable, since most hotels on that island charge a ridiculous $100-$200/night. Rates was a fair 89/night for a king. I was there for business, so I might as well get to see the beach while in town. The room I stayed in (112) wasn't too bad. It had a few minor "upgrades". For example... More

I'll start by saying this hotel was not my first pick but agreed to stay here when my original choice over booked their rooms and my booking agency ask if I would be ok staying here. This trip was part business part pleasure - my wife drove down to meet me for a mini vacation. It was spring break and... More

I've noticed a lot of negative reviews about this motel and the staff. I have stayed here several times a year for the last 10 years. I have also stayed in motels all over this wonderful country of ours. First of all,when you go to a motel you have never been to before,"always ask to see the room before you... More
