I stayed here in late May. It is a motel-style hotel, meaning the door to your room opens directly to the outside. Could be a safety concern for some but the area seemed pretty safe to me, despite the high population of homeless people in PB. Our room faced a courtyard which was nice. Room was clean and recently renovated.... More

The Good: Location - you're a block away from the beach, there are numerous restaurants and shops close by; Updated room - Our room was modern top to bottom; Quiet - We had no noise issues whatsoever. The Bad: Parking is an issue - while parking is free, it is limited. Our first night we were asked to park at... More

I stayed here for a night with my wife. We both loved it. Clean and comfortable room that is just a block from the beach. Free parking and a breakfast in the morning. Oh and the gentleman at the from desk was incredibly friendly.

Stayed 3 nights with my family, and enjoyed our stay very much. Biggest selling point is the one minute walk to the ocean. Yes, the room did not look like the pics on website, yes it was missing the fridge that was advertised, but all in all, a nice quiet room right by the ocean. Management was extremely accommodating with... More

Here's what went right - location Here's what went wrong - shower smelled like sewer every time I showered. The toilet was loose, thought it was going to break from the floor, shower handle was just about off. Lighting in the mirror, very dim. Didn't have a remote that worked, had to wait for a day or so to get... More

My husband and I stayed here for a 2-night getaway. The staff was so nice, and the property was spotless! We upgraded to a suite. The bed was very comfortable, and the room was clean and quiet. There was no mini fridge as listed in the amenities, but that was no big deal. There is easy access to the beach...just... More

This hotel might be right for you if you crave being very near to a nice beach, price is a big consideration, you don't worry about your vehicle and you don't plan to spend much time in your room except to crash. The hotel has inadequate parking and I had to scout nearby streets for overnight parking. There is no... More

I'm not a person who is difficult and needs to enjoy a luxury trip. I went to Cuba in a 3 star and a half and I was filled. I'm not a person who will give advices on forums regarding hotels, but frankly, for the price I paid for a week traveled alone, I was disappointed on several points. First,... More

First of all, this was an awesome area to stay in. We could walk out of our room and be on the beach in moments. It was a quiet area and the beach was never crowded. We walked everywhere as many restaurants, shops, CVS, grocery store, farmer's market (which you absolutely have to go to if you are in town... More
