“Worst hotel in my life!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

A loud band directly beneath my room kept me up the entire night! The room was tiny and stunk of mildew, one flimsy towel was provided and a dirty shared shower was in the hall that looked like it had not been cleaned in months. The Board of Health needs to visit this establishment. All this for $250 a night. I would not stay here if it was offered for free.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Stayed overnight and did not sleep the entire night. There was a very loud bar directly beneath my room with a LIVE BAND. I should have figured it out when I found two pairs of earplugs on the bureau. The room smelled of mildew. This hotel completely ruined what would have been a nice experience on Fire Island. Would not stay here if the room was gratis....which it was not, paid about $175 a night. A rip off! And by the way, the photo does not look anything like the hotel.

Room Tip: Do not stay here unless you are a party person who never sleeps.
