Outstanding place to stay, very close to the Cruise Terminal. The price is right and the rooms are clean. Hotel Staff is totally outstanding as well. I would recommend this hotel due to price, location, and cleaniness.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We had stayed here once before and it was cheap, clean, quiet, and pretty alright. We came back not even 6 months later and it's like a half way house. It's loud and you can hear your neighbors turn on their lights and every toilet flush. The manager was rude and it was terrible. We couldn't get to sleep because it was so loud so we left. It's also more expensive now so we wasted that money and are pretty mad but there was no way we were going to get any rest. Do not go here!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

My friend and I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. It wasn't bad and it is really affordable. The gentleman behind the desk was very nice. It was clean and we rested well. We didn't spend much time in the hotel at all because we were on the beach or on the strand. If you want a cheap place to stay for a short visit this is your place!
