We rented a two bedroom unit with kitchen (overkill for a one night stay, but that's all there was available). I recommend the family(?)... More

If you are looking for the hotel, I am definitely recommend this hotel. Not to far for walking to the beach. The room is very nice and also has a small kitchen. All staff members are very nice. They keep the area clean (that is the most important thing for me). Check out this place you won't disappoint it.

Thank you! We work hard to keep the hotel clean and updated. All our studio/efficiency rooms have a nice little kitchen area that really comes in handy if you want to kick back and prepare your own food and take a break from all the dining options down Mandalay. We really appreciate you staying with us and your great review.... More
