“Location Isn't Everything”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Great Location however the Hotel really needs some TLC! Room had a distinctively bad smell like dirty water. The first 5 channels on the cable TV did not work.((Not good when they are the prime channels for Sunday Football) One bed had a hard mattress and one bed was soft?! Neither comfortable. Towels looked liked they were dirty grey colored and needed some bleach. Exhaust fan was filthy and breakfast just passable and no better. Sink drain stopped up to a drip. Stayed for Multiple days but could not get room fixed up. Not worth the trade for the great location in the middle of town. Although the room offered no amenities for sale they took our credit card even though we prepaid for the room online....not a good sign. Not a good stay. Golfdude.

Room Tip: Make sure you do not get the last room available.

I read the reviews on this motel weeks and even days before checking in! I know I was on a budget an shouldn't expect much but the room we were put in had the worst mold/ mildew smell ever! I tried to over come it but after an hr we checked out and found a hotel else where. They really need to check into the smell and correct the issue I might have stayed had it not smelled so bad the room was okay.

When my family first walked into the room, it had a smell but I believe it is due to the tile floors and people coming in from the gulf. The breakfast was a regular continental breakfast, nothing spectacular. The room was clean.. it had a flat screen and the bed was comfortable. My mom left her phone plugged up in the room when we went to the beach and when we got back, it was gone. We had housekeeping prepare the beds for a second night and they stole her phone. It wasnt even worth much but be aware, housekeeping has sticky fingers. There was also a horrible smell coming from the washer in the outside hall. Its smelled like mildu and booty. But they did try to clean it up Sunday morning.

Room Tip: The hotel is not on the beach.. it is about a half mile away. Look for something on the beach with a...
