“You get what you pay for!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Rooms are cheap, but this place has not been taken care of. The shower floor tile was broken. TV did not work. WIFI was not working. Location is good, as it is right across the street from the beach. They now require a $50 cash deposit to rent a room, which is returned when you check out. We stayed here several times in the past, and it was a nice, clean place. Not so any more. On top of the condition of the rooms and furnishings, they blasted hard rock music from speakers on the patio from 8 am until late at night. I would not recommend this to anyone. There are much better places to stay for about $10 more a night.

It was a horrible experience as you have heard already from most. at first very nice atmosphere with people trying to help us. They had to see my dog to allow it to stay which is a bull terrier and they said it was ok. the room had puddles in the floors the moment you walked in that you had to soak up with the towels then after you do that they will take 5 for a towel off deposit. the roof in the bathroom was maid out of tin which leaked and had corrosion from moister the bathroom door fell of hinge from moister the moment i opened it. the drunk owner who had to see my dog to allow us to stay later said when we checked out that they didn't know about the dog until later so they had to take 20 for that. then walked to the room as we were finally leaving and the crack headed cleaning lady literally asked me if my dog slept on the bed i said no then she said oh good that means i don't have to change the sheets . lets all get together and call the BBB on them now. the one good thing i could say is the pool was ok when the geek heads aren't out. be-safe and better luck on y'all.

then go here. It was dirty, run down, TV didn't work, faucets leaked. The roaches were bigger than my small dog. But if you just need a place to lay your head and don't plan on being there then the price is just right.

Hole in the wall. Wireless could not work because room ceilings corragated metal. Made us give a 50 cash deposit on top ofpaying for room. Kept 5 of it because we dirtied a towel wiping water off the dirty shelving unit in the room. Toilet didnt flush. Staff could not have cared less. If this place has the last room on the strip, just go sleep on the beach.

The WINDOW UNIT A/C barely cooled at all, and it was 90 something degrees outside. The remote for the small 19" TV did not work and guess what, the buttons on the TV didn't work either. The shower head leaked water. HAS ROACHES!!!! No phones in the room to place a call to the desk and let them know something is wrong. The internet also did not work. The pool was ok except for it needs fixed. Could pick up pieces of concrete with my toes. The cabanas would have been nice excpet what ever they were covered with was really had and scratchy. Worse than burlap!!!! No trash cans, beer cans everywhere. The rooms have tile, which I understand since it is the beach but atleast put a rug to wipe your feet on. Floor was so sandy that had to put on shoes to get out of bed and use restroom. Or put a broom in the room, I would have swept the floor myself.

When I booked my room online, it was supposed to be $99.00 plus tax but had to put a deposit down of $110.88 thur PAYPAL. Which I figured was the $99.000 with tax added. But when I got to the motel I still owed another $1.49 which isn't much but the lady told me that the .88 was a paypal charge. LIE!!!! Then had to put up another $50.00 CASH deposit. Which I was prepared for since it made no mention of this additional deposit when I made my reservation.

I guess it would be an ok place if all you are interested in is partying and drinking. The pool is open all night so the noice was bad.

THEY WOULD HAVE TO PAY ME TO STAY AT THIS PLACE AGAIN...
