As you tell when you walk into this place, it has seen better days. Dreary grey concrete, dull run down lobby, it isn't the best place on the strip, but it has some upsides. Rooms are spacious 1 bed apartments, so you don't feel like you are living in the bed, the views of the strip/beach are unimpeded, especially from...

Stayed here while I was on a budget and it was lovely! Large rooms, kitchen area, balcony, comfy beds and very clean. Although the hotel was old and you would find the odd things falling apart in the room it was great value for money and I had a lovely stay. Great location and staff were very friendly!

The rooms were dated but very clean, spacious and the bed was comfortable. You cannot beat the view from the oceanside rooms. Less than 5 min walk to the centre of surfers cavill avenue. Free parking.

An overall disappointing experience. Very very run down and well overdue for a re-fit. Carpets were ok but sofa was uncomfortable and covered in stains making the whole place feel dirty. No balcony furniture to be able to sit outside for ocean breezes. Mind you the railing was coming away from pillars so didn't feel safe out there anyway. The...

Overpriced. Run down. Due to be knocked down. Don't even stay here. This place is horrible. Expected even a two star reputation but no where near it. Wifi you have to pay for. Rooms are run down. Beds in poor condition. No breakfast. Good location is the only plus. Beds had bugs in it previous. Spend a touch more and...

Such a conundrum? A great location, good rate and a good size apartment....but... grubby room, dust on the shelves, old biscuit crushed into the guest directory and the beds; as old as the building! We can't help the age of the building, some might remember when it was Apollo, the tallest building in Surfers...in 1967,but the beds really should have...

This is my second time in 6 months at this hotel. In June when I came I rang them and said could I put up something else rather than $200 which I could not afford and I don't own a credit card... the guy was so nice and I left my car keys instead. As I came in early from...

You pay for what you get but if you can put up with an average hotel to save some coin than this is for you. So close to everything in Surfers and it is literally across the road from the beach. Free parking on site is available. I didn't use any of the facility's so I won't comment on them....
