We booked this hotel last minute this past weekend for the Fourth of July. We needed a place to stay and this was literally the only thing on the gulf coast that was within walking distance of the beach and available.
Do not stay here. The owners were relatively nice and accommodating, but I simply cannot recommend the hotel because the rooms were so completely disgusting.
I have never stayed in a dirtier room. It was seriously like they didn't even attempt to clean anything. Dead cockroaches in the living room, mold growing in the refrigerator and on the chair in the bedroom. Hair all around the toilet in the bathroom. A thick coating of dust and grease all over everything, and my personal favorite: a stack of old burnt pizza crusts in the microwave. I could go on, but it's making my stomach churn just thinking about it.
Needless to say we only stayed one of the three nights we booked while searching frantically for somewhere else to stay.
If you value any sort of cleanliness DON'T STAY HERE!!
