Clean and good service. walking distance to shops and the beaches. Near to restaurants and night life, over all, it was a good stay with a reasonable price. The only thing is there is no easy access to the beaches, for someone who doesnt know the place, we were clueless as to where to go and which entrances to the... More

As we had read the previous reviews on the way in, we were a little apprehensive at check-in. However, the apprehension was soon blown away by the friendliness & understanding of the person behind the front desk. Besides the rooms that were assigned to us, she provided keys to several other rooms for a better view & overall comfort. She... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean and quiet room. They gave us several choices of rooms and locations.Free bus in front of hotel makes it easy to get around especially if you are having drinks. Restaurants also within waking distance.

It is an older hotel that shows its 'wear and tear', but the staff is very friendly and the rooms and sheets are... More

Great central location and the staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable off the area. Very pet friendly facility! Rooms were nothing fancy but were large and clean. I would come back to this hotel for the top notch staff that made us feel like family. The only negatives would have been that the free Wi-fi was only available in the... More

I stayed here in August and the hotel was nice however, there was a slight uncomfortable smell(moldy) as we entered. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I for the price I would consider staying at this hotel again.

The best thing about this hotel is the people who work there. Everyone went above and beyond. The rooms, well, like everyone else seems to say, are horribly outdated. Not even a bedspread on the bed, which was a first for me. I woke up one night and found two different type of bugs crawling on my pillow. As long... More
