I wouldn't even rate this "hotel" a 1. Mold in the shower, dirty sheets, floors wet & stinking, stains everywhere. Apparently the maids do not clean. ONLY STAY HERE IF YOU ARE BROKE & NEEDY. I wouldn't even advise staying there then. Only good thing is- it's close the beach.

We stayed in one of the rooms with a kitchenette. I luckily thought to bring my own dishes and pots and pans. The room had one pot, mismatched coffee cups, and a single plate. The view of the gulf was great. We enjoyed drinking coffee on the balcony enjoying the view. The free continental breakfast was basic like any other... More

When our first hotel was a disaster and no help at all, AJ at the reef really helped us find a room that was perfect for us. The hotel staff was friendly and it was a beautiful view! It was a really nice stay.
