Without even going into all of the details including offsite parking with no security, nastiness everywhere, broken things (including air conditioning and ice machines), ect., ect., ect. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Whatever you do. DO NOT STAY IN THIS DISGUSTING EXCUSE FOR A HOTEL!!!!!

The hotel is unkempt to the point our hotel bathroom had mold on part of the ceiling above the shower.The room had an odor that just annoyed me, so we purchased plug ins to make it bearable. The beds also had SAND in the sheets which was disgusting all in itself. Room service had to be called to clean our... More

Otherwise the room was clean and the bed wasn't bad but the furniture and decor are very old. The TV was old... More

Honestly I wish I had something positive to say about this place hard to think of one minus the view. Seemed as if everyone hated the job had many issues with housekeeping. I've stayed at many five star hotels so maybe I expected five star service. The people at the front desk were probably the least welcoming front desk agents... More

The front desk person could have been more personable. The first paper that needed to be signed before getting a room key was to agree that the client is responsible for any theft that occurs from the room. Maybe it meant if a guest stole a towel or the TV the guest is responsible, but no one would take a... More

At check-in the clerk was not friendly, acted like she was doing us a favor. Our room faced the ocean which was nice but the furniture in the room was in bad need of replacement. One chair had a strip down the middle that made you wonder what caused that. The other chair was stained. My bed had just sheets... More

I'm not saying dont go here. I'm just saying this is really really low quality. I believe two stars is accurate. You'll have a place to sleep and a place to shower. However, we had to change our own sheets, get our own towels, and clean our room. The room was very dusty. Its $50 a night when we went.... More

There was a nasty film on everything. Maid service didn't even make our beds. Will be leaving the suitcases in the garage and taking everything directly to the washing machine. Fire alarm went off in the night (which was barely audible) and the hotel didn't do anything to make sure the guests evacuated the rooms.

Torrential rains and flooding and they would not give a full refund because we had to cancel our reservation. Other Hotels... More

The service is horrible . Our room was dirty from the beginning, never had enough towels and practically had to beg them for toilet paper replaced. Keys never worked. And the bar and restaurant below kept us awake until 2am of course! Pillows where flat.
