“Clear some stuff up, I thought the didn't have some of these things”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

Ok first of all there ARE refrigerators and microwaves, at leastthe in the room we stayed in, also showers in the bathtubs. Clean rooms nice housekeeping, but no extra blankets or pillows, they charge 5 extra dollars for a pillow! Also no blowdryer or iron in rooms. Continental breakfast is cereal and toast but if you come in expecting where it is you'll be fine!

Pay attention to first impressions. Trash in parking lot, stairway, elevator and hallways. Strong smell of bleach in the lobby and through out hotel. Room appeared clean, however found hairs in tub along with roaches. Took over five minutes for front desk to acknowledge me and no one else was present. Very poor customer service and property very poorly maintained. Owners and staff should watch a few episodes of Hotel Impossible. There's no excuse for lack of cleanliness and poor customer service.

Room Tip: Book at another hotel.

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 the room itself is old and very outdated.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!!!!!
