my most recent stay was at the end of october, weather is usually nice and crowds are gone. I always laugh at some of these reviews of this and other beach hotels from people who think they are at a 4 star in a city. these are beach hotels. they take alot of abuse and upkeep is hard from water, sand and alcohol, and sometimes people themselves.
I have stayed here on several occasions at different times of the year, in and out of season. overall, a pretty good hotel and cheaper $$$ compared to others. pool is small and just off the lobby. staff has always been friendly, rooms are big and most times, clean. on my past visit, the linens were clean, the carpet clean and not needing stretching. bed was comfy. yes, the hallway had some patch wallpaper covering mistakes, and the carpet stained off the elevator, but its the beach. how many beers and coconut oil feet have been there-which absorb dirt from other people steeping on it.
no hair dryers or cooking utensils, but how many times do you figure they fall into somebodies luggage accidentally. so bring your own. no toaster or coffee maker-how many pots do you think break. there is a fridge and nuker.and there was a sign at the desk to take out your trash. i did, but i dont think there is a penalty. but imagine in the summer with all the bottles and pizza boxes. is it an inconvience to go out the door and take 20 steps to the dumpster. if my cleaning person leaves my room looking great, I can do a little to help them out,
overall, my stays, including this one, was nice. while the room might be a little dated and may have some defects, a missing knob or a stained ceiling tile, it is big, clean and comfortable beds. im sure if i look closely, i might find sand in hidden spots, but in 4 months and many cleanings, the carpet in my vehicle will still have sand. if you expect more, stay at a much higher priced place-and you will still find defects.
