Wow. First. NO POOL Came up for Roar on the Shore and we did get the "Last" room. And they did "put it together real fast". But really?? That's not an excuse for everything. No towels. Nasty bathroom. I'll post pics too but inside appeared as a run down super 8 or worse ... Lobby was nice. I mean this... More

4 starters I planned this stay at short notice on a holiday weekend. Rooms appear to have been cleaned last in possibly the 80's. Repulsive an unkempt would be a compliment. Charlie sheens pubs throughout shower an mold for days. Don't book.

Walked in lobby should of ran out the door. But being a holiday there was nowhere else to go. The smell was horrible. While holding my nose the rude man at front desk was yelling at someone on the phone. I noticed an exposed corroded sewage pipe in the so called breakfast area. YUCK. The place was filthy. Will never... More

This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at in my life. The hotel was infested with bugs, bed bugs and spiders. The bedspread was riddled with cigarette burns. The bathroom had black mold and mildew. Bath tub was full of body hair, and the water took ten minutes to get hot. The doors don't have the flip lock... More

Worst hotel ever .... Room 110 smells like dry urine, the shower is falling apart, it was scary to sleep on the bed because you are not sure if it was ever cleaned, the pool is close (actually the pool looks as if it's been inoperative for several months), the building looks like the projects. Run.... Spend the extra amount... More

When we entered the lobby and saw the dirty glass doors we should have turned around. The pool was out of service. The number for our room was written on the door in sharpie. Our room was less than clean. The remote did not work on the ancient TV. There was an ironing board with no iron. The advertised lounge... More

We were disappointed, to say the least, when we checked into this hotel, the property is a mess. The windows are broken on the third floor where our room was and they looked like they were going to fall out onto the road. The lobby is nice, but nothing else is. The front desk clerk was rude and when my... More

Dirty. Nasty. Run down. First room given to us, the air conditioner was broken. Given a new room, air conditioner functional, but barely. Musty odor. Late at night, other guests were still by the pool, yelling and partying. Called the hotel office, who apparently spoke to these guests, but it did not put a stop to it.

I generally don't write bad reviews, but this visit was just awful. The front desk people were friendly and tried to be helpful, but that and the beds appeared to be clean and comfortable were the only good things about the whole stay. And I have stayed here several times over the last winter and it was not this run... More
