I read all the reviews below and I agree with them all... Sounds weird but it's the truth. To begin with, it is the only hotel on the beach, I mean right on the beach, in the area, it is why I chose it. The building is old, charming and the view from the 3rd floor is to die for,... More

My wife and I stay for an anniversary night away. Great location a beautiful sunset. We weren't expecting much but this place is in serious need of help. Broken headboard, USB power unit that was completely shattered and inoperative still sitting on the desk, carpet with foot worn paths and of course the ants. I called the lobby but never... More

We went to this hotel 14 years ago during my SO and I first vacation together. Wow it has changed for the worse. No AC, dirty rooms and poor service, i.e. no extra pillows, fans, etc. One positive, they seem to be doing some renovation, the bathrooms are nicer but the hotel is very subpar for the amount they are...

The rooms are cozy, clean, and the bed comfortable. Stay on the 2nd or 3rd floor to get a great unobstructed view of the beach. Sit on the balcony or walk a few feet to the beach to watch the sunset over the ocean. This is a great hotel for a quick weekend getaway with your love. The price is... More

We were just driving up the coast, no real destination in mind, when we stumbled across this place right on the beach. Sure it's a little old and run-down - and the hot water was off on the morning we left! But the people were so lovely and friendly, and the location is perfect! Right on the waters edge, and...

I agree with last review. It is disgusting we also would not walk on the carpets. You couldn't sit on balcony cause it was full of bird poop. The shower even stunk. I don't know how they have been able to stay open either and charge so much. We left after first night, since we woke up to ants in... More

Bedpost was comimg apart. Deck and carpeting were filthy. 80s style wallpaper was ripped. Tiles on fireplace were missing and just laying there.A real curmudgeon for the night manager was always out front smoking whenever you needed him. Maids were friendly and helpful.Air conditioning did not work and the manager gave some lame excuse about all of the units being... More

Stayed in room 306 for one night for a girl's weekend. I had read some bad reviews and expected very little, but I was completely unprepared for the actual horror of this place. We showered with out sandals on, would not let our bare feet touch the carpet. The only reason we were able to stay was that the only... More

This charming hotel is showing her age a little (built in 1986), but the views can't be beat. It is right on the sand with an outstanding view. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are charming, although the furniture is worn. Be sure to get a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor for the best view.... More

They should change the name to "Dump on the Beach", it is truly a dump place right on the beach, filthy, run down, smelly and too expensive for what you get. The evening manager was very pleasant, however, the morning desk person (heavy set man with long grey and fungus fingers) was not very social. Next time we will stay... More
