It seems like the children of Claudette and Claire ( two sisters) don’t really care about the reviews they are getting! Their Mothers are rolling in their graves right now! Back in the day, it was a beautiful place to stay! We haven’t stayed in over twenty years and it’s the

First, I'll admit it was our fault we didn't look at a room before booking, lesson learned. The rooms are old, like 1960s decor and worse, dirty and smelly. Too late we discovered there is no air conditioning in the rooms. We happened to be visiting during a heat wave, so it

This is the worst place ever! No AC and no fans. Just a ceiling fan. It’s so outdated and it looks like no one has cleaned in months. We had to go to Walmart and buy fans so we didn’t die of heat exhaustion when it was 95 degrees outside. Cops were here kicking people out of the

This was our first time staying and I promise it will be our last. We arrived in late June in hopes of having a nice stay on the beach. Upon entering our room we were immediately struck with a strong smell of mold and mildew. After looking around the room we noticed the

"Rooms in front facing the beach look a little nicer and have private patio."
"Good location for the beach"
"All the rooms are only feet from the water, so they are all good!"
"FYI. Our rooms did not have A/C. The first time it wasn't that hot and we didn't notice. The second stay it was HOT and it was stuffy. We brought our own fan and made it bearable. Stay in the end units or ones at the beach end of the courtyard. The courtyard echos and is usually filled with families - so try to stay out of the first floor courtyard rooms."
"Ocean Front rooms have the best views for the price."
