We stayed in 416 for 4 days. We were on the top floor, king bed overlooking the pool. We had a microwave and a fridge.
Pros: you are right on the beach, the room was very clean, we were brought fresh towels every day and the price was right for a no frills experience. Bed and lots of pillows were very comfortable. No bugs, nothing bad that some beachside places can have. They changed our sheets out after the 2nd night. Pool was clean and loved the chairs on the ledge overlooking the beach. Very pretty. Fridge worked great.
Cons: Yes, due to the low price some skanky looking folks were staying here, however it was mainly families. No drunks or anything. We stayed sun-thurs and it was ok. The hired help also look a little rough, but took good care of us. My main complaint was ALL the stairs. If you do not mind lugging heavy bags up and down this place is for you. On the 4th floor, we had 3 flights of stairs to go up and down to get to the beach and pool. I have a bad knee and that kinda sucked for me. I was glad however that we had a 4th floor room bc they have more privacy than the cabana rooms that are on the ground floor. You share a common walk way on the ground level that goes right past your room to the beach. No thanks. Our toiletries were not replaced daily, like shampoo, cups etc.
The tv reception was terrible on some stations. Our ice machine on the 4th floor was out of order the whole time we were there, so if we wanted ice MORE stairs.
We decided we were having a good time we wanted to stay another day after we checked in. They turned our room key off after day 3, hubby went to office so they could fix on card machine. Front desk person got kinda snippy with him that he needed to wait his turn, there were 7 ppl in front of him filling out their car paperwork...seemed kinda rude and ridiculous bc it would have just taken her a second to reswipe the card. Another guy ended up helping my hubby after he could tell he was ticked. So we had to wait awhile to get back into our room and all we wanted to do was change to go to the beach.
First day we were there there was lots of gross wet food around the pool and trash and so on but after the 2nd day it had been all cleaned up. When we checked in there was a couple hairs in the tub and some pink goo on the back of the toilet, but I wiped them up. Shower curtain had a funky mildew smell when it got wet. Our room 416 had a blocked view of the beach due to a really large palm tree that it looked directly into. We were bummed bc it took alot away from our ocean view balcony that we were paying for. So maybe ask for a room with a good view!
This hotel is retro and older on the outside, but they really are trying and I will say we had a really good time. I think our room had been taken pretty good care of. The cleanliness and the lovely beach made up for a lot.
