As soon as we checked in the room just had a dirty feeling to it. Upon closer inspection the walls had holes in them that were stuffed with tissues. The tile floor looked dirty and didn't walk bare foot on it at all. The room had a kitchenette that had roaches. The room had a separate bedroom with two beds... More

If you like killing spiders and enjoy seeing rust and grime then this is the place. My suggestion, book somewhere else that is clean, and where you don't have to wear flip flops when you shower. Also in the room I stayed at was a missing ceiling tile above the shower. Housekeeping will make the bed and give clean towels,... More

I have never felt so disrespected in my life by the employees of this motel. My friends and I stayed for one night for a friends birthday. The room was booked for 9 girls, but the place registered it as 6 in a room. Needless to say, we almost got our car towed and vacated from our room because we... More

Don't ever stay here. It should be shut down by the board of health. Bathrooms were dirty. No lamp shade on the lamp. Better off sleeping in your car. Air conditioning was broken and the fridge if you could call it that had mold growing in it. Absolutly disgusting.

Reminded me of a cell block. Rooms were horrible. Heating non existent, beds old and been through god knows what, water damage clearly visible, locks questionable. Pretty much a dump. Stay anywhere but here.

This is the worst place we have ever stayed out. Upon checking in, the staff was on their cell phone so we had to wait. Right there I knew this was not going to be good. Our room was on the 3rd. floor. The stairs were filthy and no light in the stairway. The ice machine didn't work. The room... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms need updated and cleaned better. I think they need to invest in a steam cleaner and do the bathrooms. The parking is not so great. I would stay again because they are close to the beach. P,S, They say they are handicap assessable but not really, they have a ramp at... More

Worst stay ive ever had. There are rust holes on the walls, dirty curtains, dirty floors, and the sheets were filled with sand. We also found left over food in the microwave from previous guests. I honestly dont think the maids cleaned up the room.
