This hotel is one of the best values on the island. The rates are tied to the season and off season rates can not be beat. It is very clean, comfortable, well set up with full kitchens in many of the rooms. Yes, it is an older hotel but has been updated and well taken care of. The staff was... More

My wife and I were hesitant to stay from the reviews we read. They were totally wrong. Of course rooms are not 5 star quality but for under $100 you can't beat it. Room was clean and beds comfortable. Best was the beautiful view. Would definitely recommend.

So my boyfriend and I came here for my birthday. The hotel is a lot more run-down and older than I thought it was going to be. The rooms were just a little out dated, and the bathrooms were very small (I'm very picky about my bathroom anywhere I go/stay/live). The view was absolutely amazing, and the walk to the... More

My boyfriend and I just got back from a weekend at this hotel. Was it some fancy resort that I wanted to stay in the room all day? Of course not. However it was clean and comfortable and The staff was friendly. It is an older hotel so don't expect extravagance. If you need a clean place to sleep for... More

I feel that people don't give this hotel the credit it deserves. The hotel is 50 years old, but so what? The front desk isn't the "sweetest" or most smiling of people, but ANYTHING that I asked of them was somehow fixed and or taken care of. I am there to have a vacation, not to make friends with the...

Booked the suite over looking the ocean 14 July 2014 for my family. Accepted the high price of $265\night so that my extended family that came from Japan could really enjoy the beautiful beaches and relaxing atmosphere. We got to the hotel and I started the check-in process. Got the keys and sent the family up to the room while... More

Clean and tidy, if not a little dated. Air conditioner worked great. Dishwasher was out of order but it wasn't a big deal since we weren't going to be cooking/eating in the room. Bed and bedding were okay; not luxurious but clean. Staff was friendly. Great location; close to everything.
