“Don't get a "smoking" room!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Unfortunately, when we went the only room available was "smoking". Since we were tired and ready to stop for the night, we took it. The room was pretty outdated (the kids couldn't stop laughing about the avocado green toilet LOL). There were burn holes in both the sheet and bedspread and of course the lingering stale odor that always seems to be there with that type of room. The wall safe was broken and the lock on the door was pretty chintzy (luckily, there was also a chain lock so we did feel secure). But, the staff was very friendly, the location was good and the price was good. Upon reading some of the other reviews, I feel like the other rooms must be in better shape. I would definitely be willing to give it another try!

Room Tip: Definitely request a non-smoking room. ESPECIALLY if you are not a smoker yourself.

My husband and I have stayed here 4 times now. The rooms are always clean and the service is wonderful. The rooms are a little outdated but to me, if its clean and affordable, who cares?! To our surprise when we got here this year, they have added mini refrigerators to the rooms! Which is a HUGE help!
We will be coming back here every year as long as the prices stay affordable!

Some friends and I booked a hotel room here for our friend's birthday weekend. We were a little disappointed when we thought we were going to have a stove in our room to then find out there wasn't one. Other than that the housekeeping was very nice, the elevator was very slow too.

The really great positive about the establishment though was the Tiki Bar that was located in the back of the hotel in the pool area. We went to that Tiki Bar 2 days during our 3 day stay and absolutely loved it. The bartenders Kevin and Karrie were an absolute joy to drink with and they took very good care of my friends and I! They are the only reason I would return back to this hotel! They were very great and drinks/food was phenomenal and tasty! I can't wait to see them again next summer! :) Keep up the good work guys!

Room Tip: Make sure you bring your ID.

I'm writing this for my mother who doesn't use the internet... She came down for a visit and stayed at Bikini Beach. She loved it. She had a room with a beautiful beach view, full kitchen, and private balcony. The rooms were very clean and she had no complaints. She's already booked a fall vacation because their off season rates are so great!! The staff was very accommodating and location was ideal.

This hotel was very nice. Its not extremely fancy but it has all the essential and then some. It had a pool. It also had a full size refrigerator, microwave and full size stove. The only complaint i have is that that water in the shower never got very hot. It was always warm! I would definitely recommend

We stayed the 24-28 of July. The weather was nice and so were the people. The front desk was very helpful in telling us about diffrent things there was to do and place to go and where not to go. The hotel its self was good. Keep in mind that if you want ice or need to put something in the safe you will have to put a quater in. LOL...
Over all we so enjoyed our stay and will be going back.
The pool was awesome and the tiki bar is even better.
I would recommend this to anyone.

We came down with a group of 6 for a 21st birthday and had an amazing time! The guest staying were all friendly! However, the couple duo bartenders Keri and Kevin made our trip! It began to rain and we came in from the beach and sat with them for hours. They whipped us drinks while keeping us entertained! We will definitely be back as soon as we can to come hang out at bikini Dave's tiki bar! I recommend everyone to check them out!
