Gave us a beautiful view and were able to keep the sliding glass door open at all times without fear of intrusion. although the hotel isn't new, it was clean and... More

Don't stay here! Brought the family (3 kids under 10) and thought we would have fun seeing how this place is on the beach. What a disaster. First, the parking lot is a "hit and run" waiting to happen. Not well lit at all. Cars are speeding into the lot from the drop from the main street. Be careful when... More

Spent many nights here while on business. The rooms are clean and comfortable. It's seems safe for the most part. Don't get any room in the old half or near the pool. Insist on the newer tower if you want quiet and restful sleep. Small but friendly bar with descent prices. Restaurant on premisses till about 10. There's not much... More

The staff and people of the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful. The desk clerk was very nice to us and helped us check in a little early. The cleaning staff was also very nice and even helped us when we were having trouble with our key card. The hotel itself is a little worn down and older. It is... More

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.
