Hotel gets people in with false claims. They make you pay for the entire stay at check-in, and don't give refunds for early checkout. This is how they get you. Once you've checked in, they don't care how bad your experience is because they already have your money.They say every room has gulf views, which isn't true. In some rooms, you can just barely see the gulf out of the corner of the window.
Some of the rooms are newly renovated, which is what the pictures show. Many other rooms look like they haven't been updated since the 60s. Case in point:
-the bathroom fixtures are rusted out and every time someone takes a shower in another room, their shower water comes up through your shower drain.
-The carpets smell like mildew and when it rains, water comes into the rooms.
-This is not a place for families. They have loud, awful karaoke from 7-10pm
-The manager has a 'customer is always right' attitude in response to negative reviews on this site. If you make a complaint in person, the manager doesn't care because they already have your money.
-The shower curtains have holes, probably because of moth balls.
Do yourself a favor and stay in one of the newer hotels nearby that are comparably priced.
