Stayed here a couple of years ago and place was.ok. We knew coming back that the place was a little run down. But for the price And location you cant beat it. Got in late and came into a room with a refrigator that did not work. Got that replaced next day. We ask for extra towels and came back... More

Rooms were filthy and worn. Bathroom tub was chipped, carpets were all stained. Trim around carpet was pulled away from wall with electric cords. Some windows had to screen (not good since no air conditioning). Two bedroom suite is misleading and should be noted. The second "suite" is your living room with a sofa bed and from looks of the...

I booked this hotel for 2 nights with myself and 3 children. If location is all that matters then book it. It's right across the street from the beach and has parking. It was advertised as a 2 queen bed suite so I upgraded to have 2 queen beds. It's actually a queen bed with a pull out sofa bed... More

It's a bit run down, but we keep going back because of the location. Right by the water. Reasonable rates. Good restaurants within walking distance and very nice people in the office. We're going back in a few weeks.

This was our second year staying at Diamond Head Inn. If you are looking for location...you cannot go wrong!! Don't expect the Days Inn or Comfort Suits. This is a typical surfside motel...nothing fancy. Some tips...if you book a Queen Suite and are looking for two queen size beds, make sure you select the room with two queen beds. The... More

Bad service! Gross rooms! Mold and slime in bathroom. Kitchen lights burned out. Smells bad! Dirty and dark! When we arrived clerk was leaving and told us we would have to wait. Just rude! Don't stay here! We rebooked at PB Surfside Inn. Don't delete my review! That is just wrong!

I purchased a two room suite stay on Groupon. It was two rooms separated by a wall but no door. It was advertised for 4 people to stay. So we brought our nanny abs 4 year old. Bad idea. No privacy. Its not what I'd consider two rooms. Plus the bathroom is located past the bedroom. So our nanny slept... More
