Yes it is an older hotel...but for us it was a great place to stay. Within walking distance to where we wanted to go. The desk clerk got us an upper room with a king even though we had a booking for 2 double beds. It was clean and well lit and a great view from the balcony. Friendly staff... More

We have stayed all along seawall drive and keep coming back to this place. Excellent beach cam. Close to everything. GREAT WALKING and good excercise to go for long walks past PLEASURE PIER and great barefoot beach walking. They have upgraded the rooms a bit. We love the people, they always help us enjoy our stay.

This was one of the places where we stayed. We liked the location a lot and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was limited to only a few items and the mattresses needed to be replaced. The rooms could have been a little cleaner and better kept. We did like the fact that you could exist the room...

This place was rundown and the staff lied about services they offer when I made 2 reservations. You are not allowed to leave your vehicle there and there is no shuttle service to and from the cruise ships. The outside of the hotel was in bad shape and dirty. The rooms were okay because they seemed clean. I did not... More

I read the bad reviews but decided to make my own decision. This hotel is fine. We arrived at 3:30 pm. Checked in with No problem. The guy at the front desk was very polite (Even after a coworker gripped at him). Told us what time breakfast was and what was served. Breakfast consists of Cereal, Instant Oatmeal, and Muffins...

The Commodore on the beach is a nice place to stay. The place is Older but for it's age is very well maintained. It's Close to a lot of things...restaurants, the jetty, pleasure pier, the beach. The only thing that would've made this better that is in their control would have been a hot breakfast. They only offer continental. Luckily,... More

I'm not sure where the bad reviews came from. I grew up at this place and I still love it. Granted I think the counter tops and elevator are the original ones everything else has been redone and updated. The place is great with several places to eat at right next door. You can also walk right across the street... More

For a last minute booking this room was pretty good. The view of the ocean was incredible only a 2min walk to the seawall which is a street crossing away. double beds are not queen but can easily accommodate two people, they are on the extra soft side but are overAll ok. Nice friendly employees, the pool is well kept... More

The commodore on the Beach is an older motel but one that we enjoy staying in. The only thing I really don't like about it is that if you didn't make your reservations through them and if you are not there by 6:00 they will cancel your reservations and leave you holding the bag without a place to stay.
