The worst hotel experience of my life. Had to switch rooms upon arrival due to an overpowering mildew smell. Cockroaches in several of our girls' rooms & my daughter had to kill one and girls were in rooms next to guests who were drinking & making lewd comments to our teenage girls. On the plus side, a Scott at the... More

The property is quite out dated. AC is noisy. Paint came off from wall and door. Dirt or mold embedded in the clout in the bathroom.

I wanted to get undressed and tried to pull the privacy curtain over to cover the window. To my surprise, the curtain was only for show as the track it hung on only covered... More

I booked this joint on Groupon. We walked in and the lobby floors were gross. On our way to our room we walked by the coke and ice machines which smelled like urinal. Once in the room it stunk of mildew and the room was over crowded with excessive furniture. After walking around and realizing we had no where to... More

Carpets filthy even though the manager said in earlier response to a review that he would look into that (April 2015).

We were a little worried after reading some of the review but decided to go for it anyway. The hotel was fine. Our room was in good shape and we had a view of the marina and the beautiful cove that it is in. You will not get a room on the water for a lower price in this area.... More
