First of all the picture on line, must be old; because it does not look the same at all when you arrive! Very Misleading! It needs a lot of remodeling/re-building to say the least, it is dirty and looks like it has no maintenance and VERY little cleaning! There is mold in the rooms on the lamp shades, floor, tub...

We booked a room through website, which is very deceiving. This place is EXTREMELY DIRTY. The room have this nasty smell that would soak into everything you own. I thought the guys sitting at the pool were already stealing my truck and rims before I parked. It was so horrible we left after in the room for about 2 minutes... More

This place looks nice online. In reality is run down, old and it stinks. Our room smelled like an ashtray. The back outside patio was dirty and had beer cans and trash everywhere. The other guest were up all night and screaming. The front parking lot always had trash blowing around it. There was even dog feces in the grass... More

This place is HORRID. The room smelt of urine. The towels were damp and had stains all over them, which led me to believe they were NOT clean. The guests were strung out on drugs. Did NOT feel safe here. Left with mysterious bug bites all down the left side of my body (beg bugs?!). Also it's quite a trek... More

For a mediam price motel for the island this is for a family with a lot children. They have a fishing pier and pool and hot tub. The hot tub was not hot, and needed a cleaning. The breakfast is not very much. Defintly not what I expected.

This place has the potential to be nice... maybe they need to take "hotel & resort" off and change it to motel. If it was called Wind Water Motel perhaps it wouldn't be judged so harshly. Anyway, it sucked because we payed for a bayside view and definitely did not get that. The room was also pretty dirty, especially the... More

Very economic hotel. Nice on the inside and out! It's located right on the SPI strip surrounded by a lot of things to do. Avoid even asking the blonde girl anything. She will respond "I don't know" for anything you ask! She doesn't belong there were tourist want to know what to do, she doesn't provide any info. Very rude.... More
