Stayed on the 8th floor. The room was spacious and clean. We had a cook stove and a decent sized refrigerator. Heard complaints about not enough towels but they provided us with 4 which was plenty for 2 people. It is an old hotel and it shows. My wife thought it smelled a little musty. But the staff was friendly...

I guess I shouldn't complain about the hotel being outdated; the price was right. But it really could use an overhaul. I think if the property owners puts money into the place it would be an outstanding hotel. The carpeting is old and some of the lights didn't work in the room. There was also a horrible odor in the...

I booked here and did not do much research (my own fault - last minute booking on a holiday weekend - so I was pretty desperate) The hotel is outdated and is lower than a budget hotel. The lobby has plastic lawn chairs and tables throughout the first floor. There is a small kiddie pool and you have beach access....

This hotel is perfect for a week or more trip if you buy a suite. It has all the necessities that a house would have; a kitchen, oven, stove, bathroom, 2 bedrooms (one with a master bed and the other room with a twin and single bed), beautiful beach views, and a kitchen table. It is not more than 50...

This hotel is not a luxury hotel and the installations are not over the top either. But it is nicely located by the beach, it does have a kitchen, jacuzzi, and a nice swimming pool. Depends on the room you stay the bed will be. I have been here several times and it has happened to have a very a...

My husband and I got the kitchenette room and it had everything we needed to make our own food and drinks, it was very quite and close to the beach with its own private access. The staff were all friendly and it's basically in the middle of all the shops so that was really nice as well. We definitely recommend...

Clean room. Friendly staff. Right on the beach with great beach access. Our room was on the NE side and had a perfect view of the beach as I drank my morning coffee. I'll definitely stay here again and will recommend it to friends and family.

My Wife and I rented efficiency room with fully equipped kitchen. Putting DO NOT DISTURB sign got us all quiet stay. Nevertheless, when we needed any services, they were provided very promptly. Hotel located right on the beach. Two large grills on the premises allow for private cookout with enough room in the lobby to host a party. Separate elevator...
