The beds are the worst feature, very low to the ground and hard! However, the value for what you pay is exceptional. The rooms are spacious, we always stay in the 1 bedroom suite. The balcony...

First off, I hate to leave anyone bad reviews. However, I feel this is the only way to warn people & to get the owners to make some much needed changes. Starting out with the pros: nice location on quiet end of PCB. Pool, hot tub, friendly staff, kids enjoyed feeding turtles and fish in the pond behind our room,...

I'm only doing a 1 since that's the lowest score to give! We were skeptical when we first pulled up! The pictures online do NOT represent this place. The rooms are small, the sleeper sofa was worn out & dirty, the beds are hard & flat, & we had creepy, crawling, little vistors as soon as we turned the lights...

The rooms need updating bad but the view was great. All of the front desk workers were nice and the free coffee in the morning was very good. We will only stay again if the hotel is remodeled. It's an awesome location on the quiet end of PCB. Please remodel!

My wife and I spent three nights here. Beach was beautiful. Rooms could use updating. New mattresses and patio furniture would be nice. Positives were that for me it is down the beach from all the crowd. Beautiful beach, the front desk help was great very nice and helpful. Definitely would stay there again. Good value for the area.
