I needed a room close to the hospital and that's the only good thing I can say about this hotel. If it hadn't been so late and I hadn't been so tired I would have left. The bed smelled horrible. I was surprised by all the road noise. If I have to stay here again tonight, I definitely will be... More

The hotel was average just as rated. Staff weren't all that helpful. The gym was just horrible. The hot tub was not functioning. The location is good, the outside bar is awesome and beach was nice and clean.

We had a ground floor on the beach room was nice, but could tell there had been pets in the room prevously, I have a trained service dog and she spent most the time sniffing the carpet. It was a busy weekend over the fourth of July and they didn't have time to clean the carpets. Staff was excellent!

This lodging is right on the beach, which is its main attraction, of course. Alas, we were visiting for other reasons, so all of that was lost on us. It has clearly been here for a while, with a somewhat beaten up feel, yet perfectly adequate. Our room looked out over the roof of the convention center and its rows... More

I was so disappointed. My best friend had bragged and bragged on you all. So we made reservations for two nights. We got there Saturday evening and went to our room and when we opened the door it stunk so bad like something electrical was burning. I went to the front desk and they said they would send some one... More

I met a couple of girlfriends here for a beach weekend and we had a blast! The hotel is well cared for, our rooms were freshly cleaned and they gave us an early check in. The beach bar is a fun little spot and the beach itself was nice, offering a variety of water sports. The pool is fantastic, too.... More

The hotel was very nice! They had an indoor pool and it was about 80 degrees the whole time so it wasn't freezing and they also had a hot tub. They also had a door that lead straight to the beach and a bar outside to cool down with some refreshments.
