It's "okay". If you're looking for a place to stay for 1 night with direct beach access, an Oceanview balcony & a small pool then this place is ok. It looks like all the other tenants are meth-heads 😕. One girl with a very old, unleashed dog was arguing with the office lady in the parking lot as we were checking in. Apparently they're not dog friendly & they've told these people before yet they don't listen. I can't believe I forgot to take pics of the room, sorry. But I the shower still had sand & hair from a previous traveller, the toilet paper dispenser was falling out of the wall, there were only 2 pillows & crappy instant coffee. The rooms overlook the small pool & there is an outside faucet to rinse your feet after coming back from the beach. The beach is thru the hotels gate...clean, beautiful beach with the lifeguard station 1 building over. It's a good place just to shower & sleep & be on the beach all day, but I don't feel the other residents are safe...pretty sketchy people who look like they actually live there. Don't bring the kids. It was $145 for a king bed room for 2 adults.

Outside, it looks like any old, somewhat rundown motel. My door, in particular was very tricky to use. But once I got inside, I was very pleasantly surprised. The room was decent, with pretty decor, but the standout and biggest surprise was the oversized, very newly renovated bathroom! (See pics) with a huge European style shower. It was very pretty, as was the room, and I just got the standard with king bed! The lady at the office was friendly and staff accommodating. The location is perfect and it is front beach with a pool and also a separate outdoor party area. Chairs and large table to play games.

I should’ve read these reviews before I booked but I stayed here at the recommendation of a friend who had stayed here before. I knew it was going to be no-frills. The floors were absolutely filthy. My feet were so dirty after just a few minutes inside. When I went to wash my feet I realized the tub drain was clogged. At this point I should’ve left but it was late and I was too tired to find another place. Other issues were exposed electrical outlets, dirty ashtrays outside my door, A stove that hasn’t been scrubbed in a while and the rest of the chicken from the previous guest was still in the oven!! When I notified management in the morning I wasn’t even offered a partial refund for my nights day. I was just given an excuse that there was a new cleaning staff.

We came over on for a quick get a way from Orlando, Fl on Labor Day 9/7/20 We have been here many times over the past several years, always knowing what to expect, no frills, older building with spectacular ocean views, but this time was sadly the last we will come. We have stayed in this very room #317 several times over the years, as well as the apartments for longer stays. The room itself has been " remodeled" since our last visit, but door frame at balcony is falling off at bottom with nails exposed, leaving a "howling" sound to enter the room . Windows were really dirty...never seen them like this before, always clear:( and the AC is on it's last legs..when sitting outside it would spit rancid water on us..ewww! I understand that it's on the ocean and seasalt corrodes, but walking around you have let this place go. I know you have maitenance men because I seen them carrying a table or something from your [ owner, Naresh} apartment on tuesday....point is, they are not doing a very good job and you really need to start inspecting your rooms! You have a very nice family and used to be proud of your place..what has happened? I loved the "mom &pop" feeling of staying there, you guys were working hard to improve, I don't get it after what I seen Monday. Let's talk about the pool area...NEVER have I seen it look like this, the deep end was so murky you couldn't see the bottom, wires exposed, pool door open...and the reason your pool is filthy is because you took away the shower!! WHY? With Covid going on, there was no way me nor my husband wanted to get into it...we love that pool!! Once of the reason's we stay here:( I thought well at least at night we have the pretty light show the pool does, which was always very soothing watching the lights change and the sounds of the ocean at the same time...not this time! :( BROKEN....only 1 light at the pool area was working. We have never stayed there and not paid for late check-out because we didn't want to leave, but this time, no way! When I start seeing reviews that you have improved, then maybe I will re-consider coming back...again I can see you have tried, but you can do so very much better...BE PROUD OF WHAT YOU OWN!
