“Needs a remodeling bad - photos on their website are deceiving”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

The only reason I gave this place a "poor" as opposed to "terrible" rating was because it was close to the beach, and it was the cheapest in the area. I also give it credit for not having any bugs, because I expected to see some after first walking in.

I've never stayed at such a rundown place. Everything was falling apart. They clearly pay no attention to detail. Light fixtures were hanging. There was a hole in the wall that they fixed and resanded, but they didn't bother to even vacuum up all the drywall all over the floor. The carpet was the nastiest carpet I've ever seen. I could feel a film on my feet after walking on it, so I left my shoes on.

The worst part was that this seemed to be a local redneck hangout spot. Lots of screaming and music blasting at all hours of the night all three nights we were there. People hanging out on the balconies drinking heavily. I'm by no means uptight, but when you want a place to come back and relax at, this is not that place. I would gladly pay any extra amount of money to stay somewhere else next time.

I picked this hotel for its location on Memorial Day weekend. Plus it was the only hotel with any rooms available for a halfway decent price. It was about $130 for the night. Was the hotel worth the money.......Hell no ! But the location was. I knew I was in trouble when the guest in front of me getting a room spoke about problems he had heard this hotel had the night prior. The front desk clerk said that all those guests had checked out, so I decided to take a chance.
We were only about half a block away from the beach. And on Amelia Island realestate is hard to come by. I dont know prices during other times so I cant comment on that. This is an average hotel at best.
The staff was friendly. Nothing to say there. They helped as much as they could with what they got. The room was from the 70's. There hasnt been much referbishment since then. There was a fridge and microwave in the room though. The tub wouldnt drin good. By the end of a shower your in a tub of water. Which I could deal with if we just hadnt come from the beach, and wanted to get the sand off.
The beds are ok. I dont know if you were staying for a couple of nights though. It might wear on yuo then. The rooms are outside facing so you hear every conversation taking place outside. I didnt know how many crisis situations there could be at 3 am at night with so many guests. Its amazing what liqour can do...lol And at this type of hotel you will see no lack of that.
This hotel is about location, location, location...

Room Tip: Dont get a pool facing room, or you'll be sorry. Get a room facing the Hampton Inn next door. Th...

We were traveling with a mature group for the Memorial Day weekend. This place is overrun with locals using the pool and facilities. Groups of young people outside til after 4 AM. The local authorities had to be called to quell these folks. No security cameras so front desk cannot monitor activities around pool area. Rooms were damp and rugs were totally disgusting. Painting was in progress, but this place needs major renovations.
