This property could definitely use some upgrades, it looks aged. Balconies need to be cleaned from bird feces, but room and bathroom was clean. The only thing this hotel has going for itself is the beachfront.

As other reviewers have pointed out, there is a very strange smell in these hotel rooms. We paid extra for beachfront room. They placed a large Hispanic family next to us who spent the entire evening shouting and fighting. On top of that, there was no Kleenex in the bathroom and the front of the toilet looked like it had... More

My wife and I stayed here for Valentine's Day. We paid a little extra for the bay view room with a deck, and it was well worth it. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Service at the restaurant was great! Only complaint was the internet was a little unreliable during peak usage hours. Overall, we had a great time,... More

What a lovely location and nice hotel. This used to be a Holiday Inn but is now private. Very friendly staff who let us and our dogs check in at 1:30pm. Beautiful room witha nice view of the beach and sea wall. Lots of green area for the dogs. Ate supper at the bar area so that we could watch... More

We stayed here because we were travelling with a pet. Hotel is not well maintained. Rooms are very small and have a strange oder. Bathroom is also very small, shower isn't clean and the water from the shower drips constantly and we can't get it to stop. Only 1 easily accessible plug at the desk, the rest require moving furniture... More

The rating placement for this hotel is about right. Middle of the road. Walls are paper-thin. Be prepared for noisy neighbors in the middle of the night. HVAC system was loud and unreliable. Bar was convenient and breakfast was good.

Stayed here for three nights for my anniversary and couldn't have asked for a better location. My wife and I enjoyed sitting on the balconey looking out over the beach. Had a nice walk down the sea wall, enjoyed the fact you can rent jet ski's down on the beach and had dome nice relaxing time down at the tiki... More

This was my fourth time staying at this hotel. I usually prefer their suites facing the beach, but decided to try something new. I ended up on the 6th floor (634/5?) in a corner suite over the main entrance. View was just as beautiful and patio was just as comfortable as the others (especially with patio sized chairs instead of... More
