I would give this place no stars if I could because this motel was horrible. It says suites and inn on the website but it's just a motel. Our room was dirty, our outlet by the bed was broken, found a dead bugs behind the bed and the floor looked like it never got swept. The bathroom was just disgustingly... More

We booked this hotel because in the travel guide it said that there was a kitchenette and it had the cookware and utensils that we would need. When we got there, we did not find any of those items. When we asked about them we were told that they do not do that anymore. This is false advertisement!! We did... More

Do not book here! Not worth the money!! There is too much to say so I will try to keep it short. My experience here was not good. You are hit in the face with a strong curry spicy smell when you walk in the tiny lobby/office. It took the man about 25 minutes or so to check me in.... More

When we originally got here, our room was wrong but that was because we booked it wrong. The people at the front desk were very understanding and got us the room we needed! Very kind staff and very nice location. Will be back again!

Now this is the first time pictures from a spot hasn't matched up to what I saw once there. First of all we checked in and there was an overwhelming smell of curry in the office. Once there my husband checked in with his current U.S. military ID since it just asked for a government issued ID. We were told... More

We did not have a reservation- just pulled in. We were able to get a bottom floor room with a kitchenette for $104 a night. We were able to park right in front of our room. It had a full sized refrigerator and the room was already cool! The A/C was very cold! It was extremely clean! The bathroom was... More

This is an alright place if you're just staying overnight, other than that, I wouldn't recommend. This is a fairly cheap place one block from the beach, so I understand why it's so popular. The front desk staff isn't very friendly. The rooms are all around dirty (I had to remove a massive clump of hair out of the bath... More

We were afraid to even get out of the car when we pulled into the very tiny parking lot for guests. It is a hotel where people live rather than vacation. There were residents sitting outside their rooms and undesirables walking around the outside. We didn't even go into the office and left the property immediately and found another place... More
