Lonely planet said this hotel was "upscale." Boy did they get it wrong. Most of the hotel has no view, the rooms are cramped, the bed is the most uncomfortable bed I've ever had in a hotel and to add insult to this the sheets are paper thin (no mattress cover either) as are the bath towels (we did not...

This hotel is completely run-down. Paint is chipping off the walls, the A/C sounds like a freight train, food is horrible, rooms are not clean and hotel is generally not maintained. There are fewer than 10 chairs around the pool so if you are not the first one there you have to place your towel on the concrete around the...

June 27-29 We went to this motel (they call themselves a resort hotel but it's really more like the quality of a motel) with a large group and had a great time. The highlight of the stay was the weekly Saturday "night surf competition" right in front of the restaruant. This place is right off the high tide water line...

Well we were here so my sister could surf and the hotel was under construction so we were placed in the back section since that pool was the only one open. The first room we were put in had a faulty lock on the sliding door so we had to switch after some haggling with the front desk staff. That...

I'm surprised that there are so many negative reviews. I have stayed here a couple of times and really enjoyed myself. The rooms are clean, and spacious. They are no frills. If you are the kind of traveler who enjoys spending a great deal of time in your room and having lots of amenities-this isn't your hotel. The staff is...

I admit I was more than hesitant about staying here after reading all the reviews. To add to our perspective I will say that I've been fortunate to stay in luxury hotels around the U.S. and Europe. A luxury hotel this is not, but for the price it met our needs perfectly. And after a few days, I was quite...

Like many others, I was a bit nervous about staying here after reading the terrible reviews, but in the end I thought it was okay. If you are booked there as part of a tour, don't let the reviews ruin your trip. (In fact, maybe the low expectations increased my enjoyment!). I was booked in as part of the Del...
