i was not looking for a 5 star hotel just somewhere to rinse, eat a small dinner and exit the place. But during my first hour some little man stepped out the shadows and began yell to close the door at first I tried to explain that I just moved some items, but he continued and took me there. I...

Noisy due to loud cars and the rooms are right on the road. The mattresses are so gross and stained, I was afraid to touch them. We had ants swarming all over the sink and bathroom area. Couldn't leave anything on the counter or it was covered in ants. The furniture is old and worn, the mini fridge is on... More

This hotel is great if you know you will barely be in your room. It is not fancy & is very plain and old. Good things are you are within walking distance to the beach and some of the souvenir shops and you don't have to worry about getting sand everywhere when you come back from the beach because you...

NEVER NEVER NEVER will I stay here again! We usually stay at another place, but with a quick trip planned, there weren't many options. Take it from me, if there is still a room available when EVERYONE else is booked...it's for a reason! PLEASE READ THE REVIEWS!!! My back had given out while at the beach which made for a... More

When my son and I checked in we were terrified as the office was dirty and shabby. The female owner who checked us in was very pleasant. This trip was a present for my son's 21st birthday, so I wanted it to be a fun experience. The front door of our room appeared to be dirty as well, but it... More

When we checked in, we were given the key to Cottage 11. We were shocked when we stepped into the cottage. The pictures are old, outdated, and intended to deceive. If you have allergies, have young children, elderly family members, or have any immune compromising condition, STAY AWAY! Staph is just one germ that is lurking under the dust. The... More

We could overlook the dirty 1/2 broken furniture (after all you get what you pay for, but be aware the pictures on the website are very deceiving). We could overlook the fact that we didn't get the room layout that we reserved a month in advance (mistakes happen and 1/2 of our "party" were small children so we made do).... More
