We checked in about midnight. Room was very small and not what was advertised on internet and we started seeing roaches. We went to people running place and they said those aren't their pictures. They said they don't have any pics on website but these were their address. We had also requested ground floor and queen beds. When we checked... More

My boyfriend & I checked in around 7. Small room, bathroom door scrapped against the bed when you opened or closed it because it was so close. After eating our pizza, we planned on taking a shower & going to bed, but we didn't have any towels or wash clothes in the room. When we called & asked for some... More

This place is terrible!! Lady at desk is very hateful. Hookers and drug addicts everywhere. Not to mention they Will charge your card AFTER YOU CHECK OUT. Rooms are not as bad as owners running it and rooms aren't that spectacular. Make sure if you stay at this crooked place to pay cash.

We stayed here because other places on the Ocean front had no vacancies. It has been an unhappy choise! The price was excessive to service and room! The room was dirty and seemed unsafe. Lights didn't work and the AC was noisy. The only good thing is that it was next to the beach.

We arrived around ten pm after shopping around and finding nothing within our budget. For fifty five bucks with tax we got a room with a full size bed, paper thin pillows, a scary refrigerator that was functional but looked really dirty inside, and no lamp in the room...you had blaring florescent light or nothing. But then again the room... More

This is not the greatest place in the world but we had to stay here due to a house fire. The value is excellent for being right on the beach, the people that are "long timers" here cause a lot of drama and we could have done without it. The room was clean, we had a kitchen with a stove.... More

I checked in a bit after midnight in 94 degree weather (there was a heat wave occurring). My room was 94 degrees when I got to it (no fan on). After leaving the AC on for about 10 minutes I had to ask the front desk for a fan. He nicely gave me one and was concerned that it was... More
