Stayed here on SPI. This is a decent place. It's not the Hilton but you can't beat the prices or the location. It is pretty much in the center and everything is walking distance (in my opinion). The breakfast sucked but I didn't stay for the breakfast. It was easy to get to the beach when we wanted and didn't... More

Yes it is plain, but I paid only $40.02 including tax for my stay. Also they now have shampoo and lotion on request; a previous reviewer stated that it was not available. The ac/heat is digital, which is nice; some older hotels are still using the dial-type which i can never get to the right temp. Overall as good as... More

My husband, son and I stayed here for New Year's Eve. Yes it is plain jane but when on a budget it did just fine. It has a mini fridge and mini microwave about 700 watts. The bed was decent but the pillows were not quite pillows anymore. Be sure to bring your own shampoo/conditioner and lotion, since it is... More

We didn't want to spend a lot but we wanted a nice, clean place to sleep. This is a nice hotel. It was clean & accommodating. The personnel were kind and helpful. I like that they had a refrigerator and microwave in the room. We will stay here again when we return on a warmer day.

Some lights in the room did not work. The bed was old, dented, broken, was not comfortable with 2 pillows... More

If you are looking for a nice hotel to lounge in, this is not it. It serves it's purpose as a place to lay your head and that's about it. Close enough to the beach to walk but not on the beach like the photo shows. Complimentary breakfast was cereal and bread. Only bar soap provided in the bathroom. They... More

One word will describe this hotel - disgusting. Definitely not worth the price. Would rather camp out on the beach instead. The floor was damp all the time and the bed linens did not appear clean. When paying over $300 for a room you expect to get a good quality clean room.

But its good and didn't have the damp beach smell like the first time I stayed there. Don't expect a actual continental breakfast but I'd definitely go back.Also it's not a... More

Dirty, filthy, yucky... Bedspreads have holes, sheets are worn thin. I heated up some water for coffee and a cockroach ran out of the microwave. I reported it to the manager who promptly moved me to a different room and said he would spray. Room #2: went to plug my computer into my charger, and when I moved stuff on... More
