“Excellent Service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

This hotel had some of the best service I have ever experienced. The housekeeping needed addressed but the people at the desk were happy to have that taken care of. I enjoyed our stay there. It is a great location and they are very happy to help you plan your daily events.

Stayed in January of 2013. Headboard and fixtures such as lamps had dust on it. Hair and dirt/dust on the floor between the fridge and the wall. Hair and dust on the blowdrier in the bathroom and mold around the tub.
Positive points are that the desk assistants are super friendly and helpful.

My bf and I wanted to getaway after the holiday (mini-vacay) and he bought this on a Groupon deal. We traveled mid-week to avoid weekenders and hopefully have a quiet getaway. The room wasn't as clean as it could have been, tile floor, but no area or rugs to help muffle noise. You could tell the housekeepers only cleaned the obvious areas. The nightstand had dust, there was sticky places on the pleather desk chair, kitchen counter and dining table. There was dirt on the floor underneath the desk and dining table and under the counter in the bathroom. They supply kitchen necessities, but it was low quality, scratched non-stick pans and a mix of flatware/dishes that looked like they acquired them wherever they could and furnished the motel with them. I might even say they bought the utensils from a thrift store and supplied the motel with them. When housekeeping came after we left for the day, they only replaced the towels, they didn't empty the trash or even make the bed. The shelf for the mini-fridge was slid on the floor beside the fridge and was sticky and covered in dog hair. Luckily I keep Lysol disinfectant wipes, so I wiped down everything I used before we used it, furniture, dishes, flatware, refrigerator, etc. The breakfast room was mediocre, the one guy that was working the room was struggling to keep up with the number of people. The property was cute & quaint, but I don't think I would use it as a Wedding or event location, but at a reduced rate, we might consider going here again. I would never pay their full price for what we experienced. For the price, it was okay.

Room Tip: All rooms seem similar to me. We really couldn't hear anything from upstairs, but I could hear...

We had the pleasure of staying in one of the Condo suites & very much enjoyed it. 2 bedrooms, kitchen, living area, 2 bathrooms and a personal balcony, fully furnished. Most comfortable beds and blankets. Definitely gave us the feeling of home. With 3 teens & a baby with us it sure made our stay easy & comfortable. Hospitality was great. Everything clean.
Thank you so much for a great stay. We will be staying again.

Room Tip: rooms in rear of hotel have better view of ocean a few blocks away but the hotel itself is great any...

This was a Groupon promotion, and we "bought it"... I am starting to feel we should no longer buy into the Groupon travel promotions as their properties they promote are pretty mediocre. I had been led to believe that the Grupons properties being promoted were trying to generate business, but, not this way...) The towels for the bathroom were small, thin and stained. There was no DVD player (and we had just rented dvd's for the cold/wet days were to relax watching with my husband who only comes in from the Middle East two times a year.... When I called the front desk and asked if they had loaner, she said yes. I went down to the office and then she notified me that it was at a cost of $10.00/ night. This was the cheapest DVD player i had ever seen, the kind you can BUY at Wal-Mart for $20 or LESS!! The Tub had hair in it and scum stains. The bathroom floor and tile baseboards need a good cleaning. The air does not have a setting to keep the fan running (white noise) so as to block out all of the noise above and next to you

If your staying somewhere because you want to take your pets along this is the place for you. If you want a little more upscale than a Motel this is NOT the place for you. All tile floors which is nice and the mini fridge cooled ok...... the whole stay was just OK.

Room Tip: Dont waste your money on the palm suite.

My mom and I were here in July, it was so nice I came back for Thanksgiving! Absolutley the most pet friendly for a reasonable price. Web site says dogs need to be in a kennel if alone in the room, however if you put your do not disturb sign up they can wait for you and not be kenneled, that was great for my 2 little pups who are used to waiting for me on the couch! Rooms were clean and roomy and the breakast was yummy :0) You also get free drinks and dog treats at check-in.I will be returning as often as I can! It is very cose to the beach.

Room Tip: King suites have jacquizzi tub, very nice!
