We had a one night stay and we enjoyed the hotel. It's a little older but well kept and enjoyed the indoor pool, the private beach access and the patio deck with chairs facing the ocean. Very relaxing and the beds were comfy. Front desk staff were all nice and the restaurant was VERY GOOD! A little worried because it... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2016

First stay at this decades old hotel under newer management/ownership. It's an oasis. Bay view King bed room is a wall of windows to a perfect city, beach, and water view. Bed comfy soft, pillows fluffy yet firm. Very spacious, nicely appointed room: king bed, desk w/ chair, sofa, chair, coffee table, and two balcony chairs with table, fridge, microwave,... More

This Hotel is NOT a gem and not what it appears to be in pictures. This place has to be the worst & most disgusting places we ever stayed at. We arrived late evening 08/07/16 & left 08/09. The bedding was simply disgusting. Stained & torn comforters & sheets. Black Mold on the actual mattress & shower wall. The hotel... More

I was very disappointed with my stay here. I ended up here because I booked a 3 1/2 star hotel on Priceline, and this was not a 3 1/2 star hotel. I'll try to be brief, but here were some of the things I was not pleased with: -Our key cards didn't work. I had to go back down to... More

The hotel must have been recently renovated, cause the room that I was in was very nice. New carpet, new king size bed, nice unscratched desk, nice LG flat screen television and fresh towels each time we were out. NOW the WiFi sucks eggs, and trying to reach someone working on the front desk is like trying to find an... More

Adequate room and location. Aging hotel but fairly well maintained. Poor insulation between first & second floors. Right on a beach that is suitable for small children - very shallow. Checked in, got key and a "parking permit". Turns out the "permit" was only to allow management to ID your vehicle in case of a problem - it did not... More
