If you just need a place to shower n sleep it's ok for being so close to the bay.. the owners are rude the parking lot is cramped and it's full of out of town const workers. We paid a $100 for a downstairs single king but I seriously doubt we'll stay here again.

Came to this hotel because it was the cheapest with okay ratings for spring break 2014. When we arrived we had to come from the back because in the front the roads were under construction and closed off. But as soon as we went into the property our first reactions was "Oh my gosh! its ghetto". Small parking lot/very tight... More

The rooms are old, Beds are not clean, we asked for a non smoking room and it smelled like smoke all over, there was a cigarette butt on the floor in back of the door. The parking area is small. The pool Is small and looked dirty. Never again. Like I said you get what you pay for.

Pros... A/c worked very well. Spacious room with microwave and mini fridge. Looks clean. Staff friendly. Cons... We called the night before we would be arriving and made the reservation. We got the confirmation number once our credit card was charged, and told the girl we would be in after 10.00pm the next night. We were assured everything was fine.... More

I stay at this hotel when my father is in the hospital. Location is great. Beds & pillows are horrible like concrete. Always smells & if you are down stairs it's noisy from the floor above. Not the cleanest I've stayed in. The rates use to be cheap now they jacked the price up I probably won't stay there any... More

The room i stayed in smelled like smoked. The microwave was very dirty tub had a couple of hairs in it. Also to top it off the room had a rat in it. In my opion very expensive for the low quality they provide. Save your money and go somewhere else.
