Booked this hotel for over $400, upon arrival we noticed the small framed blue doors which gave us an uneasy feeling, but having already booked and paid for the hotel we decided to at least check out the room and give it a shot. BIG MISTAKE! as soon as we saw the room we knew we were not staying there!... More

For the value, this location is great. Not many beachfront hotels @ this rate. But the place needs updating. Elevator is super slow (we took it just once to get a luggage cart up to 2nd fl). Pool looked nice & fun, but it rained during our stay so we didn't get to use. Room pros: View of pool &... More

We stayed here a couple weeks ago. We had ocean view room. The staff wasn't very friendly though. Checkin was slow and pool wasn't very clean. Over priced as well. Good for a one time shot, but since then we have found a more reasonable place to stay at next time.

The real draw for us who have been here two times in 4 years was being close to the beach and hearing the surf at night. Off season pricing has been good. Pool was great and the right temp for early July. If you want a real breakfast go to a restaurant, that is not their strength. There is a... More

We had to book a room on fairly short notice so I was OK with having to settle for a double with 2 queen beds instead of a single king. Except that when we arrived, we found that "queen beds" was an overstatement. They were in fact full size beds and the bedding had stains from prior (mis?)use. Otherwise it's... More

So when we got here, we looked for our room, 426, n passed it like 3 times. It turns out it was across all the other rooms so we didn't get a view of the nice pool n the beach right in front, nor a balcony. It's a family room, pretty roomy but it has a window facing a wall... More

We stayed here in mid July. We had a pool view room and were able to walk directly out of our door to the pool. Each room had its own patio with chairs or balcony room with chairs. The view was really nice. They were completely booked but it never felt crowded. Hotel is on corner at red light so... More

This hotel needs a makeover. No lockbox, coffee maker, refrigerator or microwaves in rooms. The elevator needs to be seriously worked on, you can climb the stairs quicker than you can get the elevator up and down. Overall we were not pleased.

This is an older property on the seawall, relatively well maintained, shows its age a little. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Good location, within walking distance of anything on the seawall. The elevator really showing its age, works well but is extremely slow. Breakfast is not the greatest but will suffice. Parking is at a premium, and difficult... More

I read many reviews on this place, so I had my doubts. It is old and somewhat run down. The staff we dealt with was friendly and helpful. We arrived way before check in. They suggested we dress for the beach in the restroom and return in a few hours. When we came back, they suggested a place to get... More
