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

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.

My family of 3 shared a double twin bed room. I really though for the price paid it was an excellent deal! If you're looking to stay on a budget this place is great. I didn't notice the room being dirty or anything and the staff was nice. Very short walk to the beach and the shops are right there.... More

Went to drugstore across street & bought bleach for cleaning jacuzzi & bathroom....did not know what we could catch in there. One day no cleaning of room at all, just... More

Dirty rooms, broken furniture terrible attitude. You need to be really drunk to think that this hotel is reasonable. All our complaints were disregarded by the manager of that filthy motel. The hotel manager tried to pin his broken furniture on us and sent us to complain on line. Guess what? We just did.
