Would highly recommend to anyone in a budget and looking to stay right on the beach. Putt putt gold right across the road and lots a yummy restaurants near by. Souvenir shops and other shopping not far. Daytona is just a couple of miles or so on down . Beautiful area and not crowded and I went in July. 2016....

Our room was clean, attractive and everything the website advertised. Staff was helpful and very nice. I would certainly go there again. The pool was also great - at night the pool lights changed colors - really neat. Overall great experience.

This hotel has a great view of the ocean, and is not so expensive that you can't enjoy other things to do at the beach. Pool is very pretty and has nice palm trees around it. The room itself is a bit dated, but is good for the cost. Really when you're at the beach who spends a lot of...

Yes this hotel was under refurbishment, but there was not one but four COCKROACHES that we had to kill that were two to two and a half inches long! The only enjoyable thing about our hotel was that the view was amazing...but I can deal with not having a great view if it means me having to sleep with cockroaches!...

The large roaches you speak of live in the palm trees. They do get in the rooms when balcony doors are left open. We apologize that you had to experience the ugly pests. They are not from a lack of cleaning or pest control.

If you just need a bed to sleep in, then the place is okay. There are 3 stories and no elevator. The view from the room is fantastic and the pool is great if a little too warm. You are only steps from the ocean. The room itself has squeaky beds, a sofa that is 6 inches from the bed...

Yes, we too wish an elevator had been installed when the hotel was built. We are working to upgrade the motel. Much has been done, but we do acknowledge we have further to go. In the meantime, we do try to keep our rates a bit lower the similar hotels. Thank you for staying with us.

My partner and I stayed here for 7 nights and we enjoyed our stay very much. We were however given a room on the third floor and there is no elevator. We wanted a smoking room so this is where they put us. I have knee arthritis so it was a little prohibitive with respect to getting out and about...

We decided on this hotel after reading reviews since we had a limited budget and don't spend much time in the hotel anyways. Parking is horrible especially if you drive a pick up truck. We were told at the office that there were enough spaces for the number of rooms. Check in was slow even tho we had made reservations....

The price was great as well as the location. The hotel itself is in the process of being renovated so some things are new while some are very old. The room was great for us and the view was perfect. The pool was nice and overall it was very quiet. Our biggest complaint was the room had a terrible musty...

Thank you for the positive review. We are so sorry about the ants you encountered. Yes, those pesty ant hills seem to come up overnight. We do spray the ant hills as they are discovered. We hope you will stay with us again!

Good location and close to everything. Room smelled Doggy and that was not good? We stay in this area a lot and will not return here. The front office staff was Excellent and there is a lot of potential here because they are renovating but the Doggy smell will always be there?
