We stayed at the Diplomat after leaving another local five star hotel. This is an older motel, but it is in great condition and everything was clean. The front desk people were very polite and friendly! We will be staying in this motel again. It has ocean front eff, rooms for a great price. Within walking distance of everything!

Positives....great view, and pleasant staff. Close to fun activities. And if you are a spring breaker, you can enjoy a wild Vacation with no interruption. Negatives....This motel is older and run down. There was no clock, no phone, and no toiletries except a tiny bar of soap. Tin foil is wrapped under the drip pans of the stove. Furniture chipped...

Just finished a 3 day stay with the Diplomat, enjoyed it very much, room was clean, great view, and the central location of the place is the best part, parked my car, and pretty much walked. Candy was who I dealt with, very nice, and made me feel at home the minute I arrived. Overall, just a great place. If... More

Fantastic location for the price. Definitely could use some updating, but it was clean and the view from 3rd floor balcony was great. Staff that we encountered was very friendly, the maid didn't even take the tip we left for her the first day. We stayed from 7/28/13 to 8/1/13 and the parking was fine. We probably left at least...

i had never stayed at The Diplomat before and booked a last minute stay for this past weekend 7/26 to 7/28. Due to such high occupancy everywhere the only way i could stay was to use one room 1st night and move to a 2nd room the following night. This was more than fine as I just need a getaway.... More

Room was clean and in a great location. It is a good room for a great price with an oceanfront view. Parking could be a challenge but we always found a spot. If you want perfection, stay elsewhere this is not for you. If you want a clean room for a great price within walking distance of the strip this... More
