it is not a Hilton by any means, for the money it was great. Very clean. looks like someone is upgrading a little at a time. Old style Beach Hotel. only complaint, and I love you bikers, but during bike week, it sits on the main road at a red light that works all night long. Bedding was comfortable and clean. what more can I say?

Hostile staff threatens to call police for merely asking if late check-out is available. halfway house crowd rich on the sex offender list. Not for kids. Don't ask for fresh towels or later than 11 checkout you will be verbally brutalized. Gritty floors, sharp drains dangerous for kids. Best to stay in a national chain in this area for a normalized front desk staff. hotel experience Not for business seekers no ink in their printers. no invoice available for that ever so important tax deduction. Was informed only one cleaning staff for entire hotel and it smells like it. Was afraid to ask them for anything.

Roach motel. filthy, I didn't walk on the floors barefoot. Smells of mold and musty. Employees are nasty and obviously didn't want to be there either. There is nothing positive that I can say about this place. Oh.. wait.. the location is nice. Right on the beach. The best thing that could happen to this dump is would be if it were destroyed some how in a natural disaster.

Well we took a chance with Priceline and it didn't work out. This place is old and needs maintenance. Paint peeling all around on outside of buildings and rust stains on exterior walls. Decking and steps need repair along with electrical and lighting problems. Lights not working, outlets not working etc. Interior of room was not good either, paint and stucco peeling off ceiling from leaks / damage ? Paper thin walls , no sound proofing .The other rooms above and behind ours were easily heard . Chairs , talking, TV's easily heard thru the walls and ceilings. Outside the grass needs mowing along with a host of other maintenance issues that need attention. Used lumber strown about and stacked against the building. This may have been a nice place years ago. It has been neglected in my opinion. Definitely save your money and pay more elsewhere. The wifi door locks malfunctioned also. Onsite maintenance was unable to fix problems and we were moved to another room. Sad.

Bed was horrible and uncomfortable. and sheets were stained. Couldn’t get more towels or pillows. None of us wanted to sleep. It was a horrible night! Wish I could of gotten my money back
