Hi, my name is Mugsy. I got burnt by Groupon. The pics they posted must have been from when this relic first opened. The place needs repairs badly and a good cleaning and new paint. We had to use our white stained towels to soak up the shower leak. The walls are paper thin and there was "stuff" all over...

This is the second time we have stayed at this motel in Ormond Beach. We get an ocean front view from a second-floor balcony room that is unbelievably low priced for the location. The hotel has a breakfast offering in the mornings until 10:00 AM. The rooms are clean enough and comfortable. They may need a little updating but the...

This place was the worst place I have ever attempted to stay at. I cannot call this a hotel as I feel that would be an overstatement and misleading to anyone who would even think to go there. The sheets that were supposed to be white were a mix of yellow and beige, the floor was full of other peoples...

This property is in deplorable condition. Don't be fooled by the pictures on their website. You will see mold, mildew, chunks out of the bathroom walls and ceilings and the rooms are filthy. Not only that, but the toilet rocked from side to side and right beside it was.......wait for it........a plunger!!!! You do not want to stay here. Ever.

We got an ocean-front room with a kitchen and LOVED it! Having sliding doors to walk right out to the ocean is fantastic and the tile floors make it much cleaner and easier to maintain. We had our own little patio and our little dog enjoyed it at as much as we did. No the hotel isn't the Ritz and...

Yes, the hotel is older, but still has the charm of a care free beachfront hotel. Our room was nice and clean, and the kitchen had everything we needed and then some. It's on a nice quiet part of the beach with very little traffic. Interesting late checkout options - stay until 11:00 for free, 2:00 for 25 bucks, and...

All my son wanted to do is go to the beach and play. We checked in, went to our room and found it to be dirty. It sneaked as if a whole bottle of cleaning solution was spilled, dirty towels on the bed, moldy cracked shower, and it had cockroaches. We went right to the front desk and asked for...

Booked a Groupon for a king bed ocean view and when I got to the room it was a partial view and two twins. I went to front desk...I got switched up to an ocean view, still no king bed. Employee straight up told me if I didn't like this last only room they had, I could cancel with Groupon....

Hello Bsprigg, I'm sorry we did not meet your expectations on this stay. I will certainly look into the room and to check on your complaints. All our tv's are new 32" LED's with some 40" LED's mixed in. As far as I know no one has ever complained about the size but we are slowly replacing the 32's with...
