Went in expecting the worst & while the hotel can certainly use some updates, especially in the public areas, it wasn't too terrible. Staff was friendly. Weird smells in halls and elevator. WiFi was slow / useless. Didn't try the pool or free breakfast. It's newly renovated but I have a feeling the hard and soft goods will not last... More

This is THE WORST HOTEL I have ever been to. The smell was like a landfill, the carpet felt like your feet stuck to it, I complained about the smell and was given a bottle of air freshner. I slept with my clothes on and walked around with my shoes on. I felt like in the morning did I really... More

This IS NOT the hotel to stay at if you want a pleasant experience!! We were in town for our daughter's National's softball tournament and were stuck at this hotel for a week because everything else was sold out. Our first night we arrived to find our "non-smoking" room had a smoking stench that we could not get rid of!!... More

I read a bunch of reviews before booking and just focused on the good one, BIG mistake. The hotel was easy enough to find and that is where the positive things end. We had to park in the back and our key didn't work so we had to walk all the way around to get it fixed. Get in the... More

That being said it needs updating it is older with no working gym but there is an indoor pool and spa I did not use but... More

When we first walked in the lobby there was a moldy smell. We checked in and got on the sour smelling elevator. When we get to our room the keys don't work so I call down to the front desk from my cell phone. He tells me I must be putting the key in wrong and that he will be... More

We didn't expect this hotel to be amazing since we got it pretty cheap. Our room was very nice. breakfast was nice as well. The pool area was not anything special but was not bad. We were only 10 mins from the beach. Over all it was a great stay. Cannot think of anything that would not make us go... More
