“Serves its purpose”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I stayed here for an impromptu Valentine's Day mini vacation in February. While the hotel was average, I did find it to be very clean and comfortable. The room small but I didn't expect much more for the price. Great location, walking distance to great restaurants and the beach. The pool was very refreshing and jacuzzi hot, although the view from was less than desirable being right on the strip across from police station. All in all, for the off season rate, I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

reserved two rooms for two nights, but once we checked in and saw the condition of the property we cancelled our stay, paid the cancellation fee and found rooms elsewhere on the island. If you are used to Hampton/Fairfield/LaQuinta/Holiday Inn Express level accomodations, you will be sorely disappointed here.

our stay on was horrible. the staff was rude and illiterate. the hotel wreaked like it was dirty. the room itself is old and very outdated. comforter on bed had holes and was dingy. sofa bed mattress had huge nasty brown stains and when we asked for another sheet to layer the mattress for my daughters to sleep in they questioned it and gave us a hard time. gets better, at 3:30 in the morning, i felt something crawl on my face. i swiped it off had my husband turn on the lights to find that it was a huge roach. these people are dirty. i would not even have my dogs sleep in these conditions. next time, we will pay a little extra to get alot more. good luck for those of you who plan on staying. when i confronted them about our incident, there was no reaction from front desk. guess this is normal...

my stay at this hotel was horrible, couldn't even get a roll of toilet paper to my room, the a/c didnt work well, the staff was rude, the " continental breakfast" was old and nasty, the room was duty, the only good thing about this hotel was the price and the location, it looks nice from the out side but when you go in your room its a flash back of the 1980's....

Room Tip: choose travelodge instead!!!!!

Pros:
You're a block away from the beach.
Couple of blocks away from the clubs.
Nice room with a sink and a microwave in an island in the middle of the room.
Breakfast (although we haven't taken advantage of it)
Fair price.

Cons:
Smelly and at times not so clean corridor


Our stay at the hotel was good. We chose 1 Queen and 1 pull out sleeper sofa since we had our little ones with us. Ram at hotel reception desk was helpful in getting us the bed-sheet, blanket and pillows for the pull out bed. Inside the room it was clean and the setup was innovative. The TV was mounted way up high on top of a closet that scared us a bit but found out it was bolted down pretty strong. Second floor corridor had a strong smell of cooking spice.

Over all it was fairly priced and staff were helpful. I'll return to this hotel for our next SPI visit.

Room Tip: A Queen and a pull out sofa is a good setup for a family with kids. Call the hotel directly to book...

Pros: Clean room, very affordable, short walk to the Gulf beach.

Cons: Pillows are flat. So, if you share a bed, BYOP; Internet access questionable.
