Where should I begin? The fact that we paid $300+ per night for this dumpy place was outrageous. It was maybe worth $90. MAYBE. The room was damp. When I say 'damp', I mean they had a dehumidifier in the room and those huge fans trying to dry it out. We don't know why it was so damp and we... More

Do yourself a favor and book somewhere else, the pool is very small allowing maybe 7 chairs and a max of 28 people in the pool at a time, the housekeeping is very poor only bringing towels and toilet paper every day instead of actually cleaning the room and the customer service is not helpful at all or can barely...

We stayed here for two nights and I couldn't leave fast enough!! Thank goodness we spent little time in this room! Dirty is a understatement! When we walked in there was not even a roll of toilet paper in bathroom! Old TV, the color was purple and green on the tube. Don't waste your money here.

When we checked in our room had a dead fly on window that did not get cleaned during the three day trip. The workers only made rounds once a day. When rounds were made the workers expected u to help them.

Where to begin???? The rooms here are filthy. Dust on everything and the door to the balcony is so old it is permanently fogged up between the panes of glass so you can't see outside. Mold on the bathroom ceiling and the pressure of the water coming out of the shower is so strong it hurts to stand in plus... More

This is another of the older hotels in VB but it is very nice. Rooms are big. Live music in the Calipso bar which is great. Walk to great restaurants and enjoy the beach view. Small pool but adequate. Also price was right.

When we booked the room, we were told it was oceanfront...nope! It was bar front not oceanfront...and to beat all we had the $50 off postcard, and we never received the discount. The hotel charged our account t an extra $50 and when we questioned it, they took the $50 off and called that our discount! The manager Kisha Williams... More
