1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2007

The outside grounds were gorgeous and it even had a swimming pool, BUT everything else was below standards. The room had 2 queen beds (which were actually comfortable if you could get past looking at the falling apart box spring), lots of pillows, a 'dining' table and chairs which blocked the main door from opening all the way, a crammed fridge beyond that, which was not in the "kitchen" (which smelled of pure gas if you were able to even get the door open), and a very dinky bathroom. It seemed, quite frankly, like it was the "Bates Motel" from Hitchcock. Still the old-fashioned keys with your room number on it for all to see even. The paint was so thick on everything that it was sticky, and you could not even close the bathroom door. The windows seemed to be in place by sticky bad caulking. It turned out that people actually "live" at this place, and our neighbor liked to sit out on her 'porch' and screech on the phone for all to hear. It was truly miserable. The tv didn't work properly the first night we were there either - we only got the Animal Planet and Cartoon Network! The ONLY saving grace was that we did not spend much time in the room and a beautiful beach was a block's walk away.
