“VERY DECEIVING”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Stayed 5 nights in this hotel and was disappointed. It was cheap so that is why we got it but I guess you get what you pay for.
We got free breakfast for purchasing our trip through expedia but you still had to pay for the coffee- that was not free with the breakfast. What facility doesn't have complimentary coffee? The whole entire building is very run down and OLD. Everything needs updating. The beds were tiny and thin, the bathrooms weren't the cleanest. They had no shower mat for the bathroom - so you could slip on the tile after you get out of the shower. Their housekeeping was bad, although they may clean the room fairly good they never left new clean towels! They would take the old ones away but wouldn't leave you new ones! We had to constantly call down to get new towels and there was NO TOILET PAPER ROLL FIXTURE!! We had no toilet paper upon checking in and had to call down to get some..then we had to leave the roll on the back of the toilet.
The restaurant was good - nice food options - but expensive. No stairs to get to the beach. Friday night they had a DJ there - little dance area but good if you were just sitting around and drinking...
Hard to find the hotel - little itty bitty sign on the road, the building looks very old and run down compared to the giant fancy buildings next to it.
It was in a decent location to stuff - the sun deck above the ocean was very nice -- pretty view of the ocean. I would rather not stay here again, but the price was good. If you don't plan on hanging at the hotel all day/night then this is a good choice. We were gone most of the day and just came back to shower and head out again - or come home late and just go to sleep and wake up and head out again. If you plan on hanging around at the hotel THIS IS NOT THE PLACE TO BE!! Book a different hotel. It's basically a place to sleep.
Pictures are not accurate..no ocean view or garden view -- all views are of the parking lot - BEWARE.

The room we received had uncomfortable beds with bedspreads that looked like they had not been washed in a long time, no protective cover on the pillows, wash cloths in a basket caked with dried toothpaste, no soap in the dispenser, shower full of black mold, shower door and tiles had built up soap scum. 2 channels on the so-called cable TV. Bad, Bad, Bad. Are there no inspectors in Florida?

2 channel TV, plugged toilets, lamps not working, no sheets on bed, wifi signal too weak,in room telephone not working, cracks in the wall, no hangers, Do you get the picture ?

Best going is the restaurant and its staff. On the ocean, decent breakfast prices, friendly staff.

Go eat there just don't sleep.

all the reviews are correct...this motel is in poorest shape. of course it is cheap and the location is great, but i was grossed out after having stayed there 3 years ago when it was not great either. the smell in the room was unbearable! it was fairly clean but also totally bare bones (i.e. no bath mat, no fridge, no hair dryer, no blanket but just a sheet etc.). honestly it was the worst hotel i have ever stayed!

everything in sorry shape. TV remote doesn't work, phone hooked up to dead line. No wifi info provided at check in and tried to call front desk for wifi code but got "reservations" who hung up. No bathmath. one perk...the bar in the back is friendly and right on ocean but wine and drinks are highly overpriced. Bar seats are a lawsuit waiting to happen...rickety and ready to collapse

This resort is right on the beach! So for the money you can't beat it. It is an older resort and needs much updating but it was clean and comfortable and the room was huge. We had a nice meal in their restaurant too. We were here in March to visit family in the area and came back again.
