“Not The Ritz!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

While this certainly isn't a 5 star property and not handicapped friendly, it is clean and the top floor corner room Oceanside is nice. Great views, sun, private. The beach, boardwalk, room rates and convenient central location are this properties best assets. Smaller pool just ok & restaurant in hotel not worth it. Market across street for sundries, breakfast etc. and Carrabba's Italian 2 doors down in Courtyard Marriott within walking distance if no car.

If you can not climb steps, do not go here. If you can not walk from off site parking, do not go here. If you can not walk up and down stairs, do not go here if you want to get to the beach. Long walk to the beach.

We were checked in for 4 nights but due to some errors in their system we had to move on day 3 from our King top floor Suite facing the ocean clean smelling room to the marijuana smelling 2 double bed room on the VERY dirty 5th floor. Was not happy when we asked for a King room as they said they were all booked up.

The second night we were there someone was doing some partying at the pool and there was smashed beer bottles everywhere as well as bottles floating in the pool. This took them most of the day to clean up and they did not start on it until well after 11am.

The breakfast that they have there is not worth the $14.00 plus tip per person.

The best part about staying at this hotel is the access to the boardwalk and the great cabana man Dee out on the beach. He was the BEST!!!

I stayed here for three nights in April 2014. I have to same that although my room seemed clean (bedding etc), the whole room and the corridor smelt old and musty. It was so over powering that even opening the balcony windows to let air in did no good! We were a group of 20 and spread out over many floors and it was the same all over the hotel. It's old and need refurbishing. It is a nicely placed hotel, but for $200+ per night you do expect better. The Wave Bar was closed so there was no where in the hotel to drink after 9.00pm which was disappointing.

The walls were paper thin and the air conditioning was very very loud!

The pool area is OK - the pool is tiny but sufficient. No free beds at the 'private' beach. I wouldn't stay here again.

We stayed here prior to leaving on our cruise. We found this hotel very accommodating, friendly and convenient. They offered shuttle service right to port for a small fee. The staff went out of their way to ensure a great stay.

The worst Best Western we have ever stayed at.Staff that doesn't care.On the beach but displaced from everything.Very expensive and nickel and dimed for everything.Better to stay at the Days Inn two doors away, also as I understand, owned by Best Western and considerably cheaper and a much nicer pool.

Fans were noisy, walls were paper thin, electrical was scary, staff weren`t helpful, sofabed belongs in the dump, website pictures are deceiving - lobby looks nice, but rooms are very old & smelly. If you have a vehicle don`t stay here - the parking garage is limited and tight and they over sold the very expensive parking passes both nights we stayed there. The only thing this hotel has going for it, is the location.
