“horrible experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

this was by far my most horrible motel experience so far. it was getting late and we found no other place so we settled for the pier one motel. it already looked run down from the outside but i slept in similiar looking motels and that turned out to be ok. this was not the case this time. smelly room, dirty linen, disgusting bathroom, repair needed everywhere. and then we found a suprise in the nighstand: a slice of half-decomposed pizza. manager refused to give us a refund or another room but graciously offered to clean the room again...
never again...stay away!!!

This motel was obviously just redone, everything brand new. New Smell still in the rooms. Room had a flat screen tv also brand new ac units. This place has its own private beach on the bay as well as boat slips and a jet ski rental all on their property in addition to an italian restaurant.

The people are great, the atmosphere is amazing. Unfortunately, there are more bugs in the rooms than grains of sand on the beach. Repairs are needed everywhere. When using a microwave, all the lights in the surrounding rooms visibly dim. The water pressure is great, but it smells greatly of eggs. The AC units work fantastically, providing your room is one of the few that has knobs on the appliances. Bring your own fridge, toilet paper, towels, telephone and cleaning supplies, as the service is nonexistant.

  • Liked — The other people staying at this hotel are grade-A, top-notch folks.
  • Disliked — The bugs, the broken *everything*, the smelly egg waters.

I really enjoyed my visit to the restaurant. Great food and nice atmosphere. Reasonable prices. Nice hostees and courteous waitress. My first visit I ordered kid meals for my children which include a free dessert. On my second vist, the waitress said the kid meals did not include a free dessert. I was really dispointed. I should have talk to the restaurant manager and let him/her how I felt.
