I recently booked to stay at this budget hotel, when booking it looked nice on the reviews,on the beach which was what we wanted, I did not expect any luxury but did expect parking and cleaned room. When we arrived the parking was terrible, it took over an hour to find a parking space, even though the hotel has a... More

There is no parking convenient to the rooms and the lot is horrible to start with. Upon checking in you will... More

The kitchenette was nice, supplied with everything advertised. The staff was... More

I booked a room for 5/4 - 5/7. We checked in and when we got to our room it smelled like stale smoke. We called the front deck and asked for a non-smoking room to be told that all of the rooms were smoking rooms. We went out and a purchased an air purifier and it did not help and... More

I stayed in the motel this past weekend. My room was clean. The staff was not the most friendly but other than that everything was good. Price was cheap so didn't expect a whole lot. Wish there would have been another tv in the other room but we didn't stay in the room long enough to do anything but sleep... More
