Everything great. Nice pool, nice Tiki bar, live band at night. Close to The old downtown entertainment, great beach setting, great sunsets, great moon over the water. We love the place.. Steve and Bev .

We went in July for family vacation. We have a 10 and 8 yr old. They never wanted to leave. You have everything you need for adults and kids at the motel. Yes it's outdated but who cares. Everyone was so friendly from staff to all the locals. My husband and I met a local through our kids playing on...

Our first night stay we had a problem with the room, air conditioner was leaking inside the room and the floor was wet, but we went to front desk and they up graded our room at no extra charge, and they kept apologizing to us. Had house keeping everyday, anything we needed they got for us. Over all great place...

I wanted something with local flavor - no chain. I heard good things about the restaurant on the property from locals I met at the Mexican restaurant Peppers, but it was closed when I booked in after 10 PM. The hotel was built in the 50s and used to be a Days Inn. The night clerk was helpful. I felt...

Hotel is about 15 minutes from the beach. There is very little sandy area. Didn't go to the pool but did look nice. Had a non-smoking room and when I opened the door I could smell the smoke. Accessories were old and rusty. Nothing I couldn't live with but next time I think I will go closer to the beach...

Everytime we come to Panama, we stay on the island. The woman that checks us in is always the same, and she remembers us each time. The rooms arent the best, but for the price, they are well worth it. The kids have a place to place and we can sit on the edge of the water and relax. Will...

This place was gross. The reviews were ridiculously good when we booked. I see now that people are flooding the site with similar stories to ours. Our first room was an immediate disappointment. It was dank and dark like an old basement. Everything was filthy and the carpet was wet; not damp, wet. The hotel clerk switched us to an...

Firstly, based upon other reviews, price and pictures we decieded to book what seemed like a very comfortable pleasant motel. The only good thing about the place is the bar next door, it has a very nice ambiance. The rooms are very dated and filthy, the housekeeping staff were very rude, the pool i would not let my dog swim...

we stayed 3 nights with room facing the bay,with a private deck. Was clean but a bit outdated. Very affordable for what you get. Restaurant had great food and free bands on the weekend. Staff very friendly. Plan to come back again.A plus being on the bay away from all craziness.

“We want a room in the side where you can overlook the water right outside of the room. On the end, far left of the pool. It looked like that was the best room in the whole place.”
