Firstly, I was a tad bit apprehensive about staying at this location due to the bad reviews. The price was reasonable. The reservation process was fast and easy. I paid for the first night while booking and the remaining balance at check in. The manager was polite and professional. The property was neat and clean. We were allowed to park... More

After reading some reviews, we were prepared for the worst but our stay was great! We stayed over the Fourth of July weekend. Our room was very clean and all of the hotel staff was very nice and very accommodating. The hotel was an easy walk to the beach and very close to lots of restaurants, bars, and shops. I... More

Apparently overbooked, no parking for paying customers. Elevator slow and no ventilation. Toilet Seat had hair on it. Hair found under sheets when turning down bed. That was the last straw! Did not even stay.

So I thought I would write my review to express my opinion on this place! We arrived earlier then check in time but the man was nice enough to let us check in and gave... More

Here's the gist: don't stay here if you value cleanliness!! When we arrived, the front desk staff (seemed like husband and wife) were SO rude and very unfriendly. When we got to our room, the towels had nasty yellow stains on them, there were hairs on the sink and in the bed, the deadbolt was broken, there was mold all... More

When we first arrived we were early for check in. We were offered to change in a room and leave our car parked there so we could walk to the beach. The staff was extremely friendly,also the rooms were very clean remodeled rooms. Ocean view from balcony, about a 3 minute walk to the beach and Free wifi. We stayed... More

I'm far from being a "hotel snob" and have stayed in some crappy places, but this was pretty bad. The walls and doors looked like they have never been cleaned, smelled like cigarettes, there was hair from the last occupant on the bathrooms walls, terrible patch jobs on holes in the walls and doors, ants, toilet paper holder broke the...

Great rooms and friendly staff they opened our room early and even refrigerated insulin for us until we could get into the room very pleased with the room and bathroom. I love the fact the room was tiled and not carpet.

The rooms are nice and very clean! The front desk staff was super nice and even allowed us to check in early because my grand daughter had insulin that needed to be refrigerated. 1 block from the beach.
