Do not stay here!!! It is an extended living place for a bunch of worthless junkies! They are rude and dangerous! Don't even pull in the parking lot! The rooms are nasty! The price isn't even good! DO NOT STAY HERE! The front office smells like pot and it seems that the owner needs to smoke less and clean more!...

I booked a hotel in this property. After all the reviews, I decided to give it a try and see for my self. It was terrible, nasty, dump, old, dangerous, and bad customer service. Nothing good I can say about this hotel except it is across from the beach. While we were checking in, a cop was there. This lady...

It is nasty! There was a huge roach bug in our room and the guy said it was a Palmetto bug and it was a roach clearly. My grandma was charging her iPad and the electricity outlet fried her battery and they wouldn't pay for it! We payed $150 for a very crappy room! The lady that worked there was...

There's no words to say how AWFUL this place was. My mom and I decided last minute to stay over night in pcb for Memorial Day weekend. We booked the room through Expedia because it was cheap and right across the street from the beach. But it's so true that you get what you pay for! We got to the...

I only gave them 1 star because it won't let me leave zero. We booked 2 nights at this hotel last week. Tried to call all day the day we arrived to let them know we'd be just a little late getting there (8:00pm), but never got an answer. When we did arrive, the office was locked. There were signs...

This is one of the worst places I've ever stayed. One of my rooms air conditioners NEVER worked. There was water constantly on the rooms floor and wall. The maid was also the maintenance, and the strong odor of MARIJUANA even from the guy that checked me in was overwhelming. As a veteran law enforcement officer myself I got an...

This is a great little mom n pop older style motel located right across from beach access. Its on the quieter end of the beach. Great for families, retirees; spring breakers have a lot of free access but it is a little bit far from the main Club scene. The couple that maintains it, takes good care of you. Best...

This could be a great place to stay but no one ever answers the phone from the office, there are not attendants on grounds for repairs or even just needing a few towels. There is a sign to contact a certain room number and when I did they had lost the keys and the manager on duty was not even...

We come here once a year, and love it. The new owners are great people.Not saying we didn't like the others, they were good people to. If your looking for a nice quiet place to stay this is it. You can truly be yourself here. They treat you like family here. We will continue staying with them. Hope you give...

“Call first!!! Don't waste your time to find no one on property to rent to you. Good luck getting an answer on the numbers displayed in the windows or on line. Also the "manager on duty" looses keys and is not always there. Go figure............”
