4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

don't expect big comfort and frills in this hotel. This is a very simple, nice place on a good location near the beach. the room had good beds & airco, the walls were rather thin. owner is very considerate and makes you feel welcome. if you're looking for a fair budget hotel, this is the place!

Stayed August 2013, traveled with family

We were pleasantly surprise with this diamond in the rough. The outside needs a bit of updating, but the rooms were exceptionally large, well appointed and spotlessly clean. We even had the sounds of nature greeting us from the room's radio. The mattress were comfy and the linens were soft. The staff, inclining Gary and the owner (a WWII Vet ... salute, in his 80's) were "family". There's no computer in the front desk ... just a big old smile! When we checked out, we got a LARGE basket of goodies .... cookies, chips, soda. Overabundant love to take on the road with us! Never have I received the love AFTER I checked out. That is tremendous.
If you want a simple, genuine and caring place to stay, this would be it! They try so much to help you have a nice staff. KUDOS to this nice inn!

Stayed at the Best Choice Inn over Memorial Day Weekend and we were pleasantly surprised! We stayed at this hotel last year and we really liked the location, so we decided to stay again. The rooms have been refurbished and look great! The room was very clean. And like I said, the location was the best... Walking distance to restaurants, shopping, movies, AND the casinos. Friendly staff.....fridge....microwave...and free Wifi. We will definitely stay there again!!

There are entire families living here full time with dogs. It is functioning as a very low level apartment building. You do not want to stay here even though the area is nice.
