Really bad experience, dirty rooms, wifi connection not available because rooter was broken, breakfast supposed to be in corner where you can only stand and you can have only coffee and, maybe, one donuts. There are a few parking stalls and if you are not resident you have to park n the road after 9PM. Voucher to park were over. Experience to forget. Price for all this, crazy high, more than 100 USD.

we apologize for the inconvinient stay, but our rooms are clean and comfortable and not dirty as you state.All our reviews never mention dirty rooms because they are not.You may not know what a dirty room looks like.May be look around the sarrounding motel rooms and then you can compare our property. Our breakfast is mandated by our franchise to provide juice, coffee and doughnuts. Well better than nothing as you get in Italy. Our beach area has very strict parking situation and we still provide free parking and not charge for it. but dont get used to it as next time you come to santa crua you will be paying mandatorily for parking just like san fransisco. in any case thanks for your patronage.

We chose this hotel for the location and price. The room was old and one of the beds was terrible. The towels were thin and the soap was so small that it disolved by the end of the night. There was no clock radio and the remote for the TV was broken. When we told the management about the lack of a clock radio his reply was that they did not keep clock radios in the rooms. The microwave was loud and squeaked and their was a large wet spot in front of the refrigerator. They advertised a continential breakfast but what served was stale donuts, koolaid and weak coffee. The good part about the hotel was the pool which was heated and refreshing after a day at the boardwalk. It seemed like the management was a little too focused on cutting cost which was too bad because with a little effort this could be a nice place.

We were pleasantly surprised with our room it was pretty large. The bathroom was huge. We had a room with 2 double beds the 2nd one was in separate alcove. The location was perfect for walking to the beach and boardwalk. I felt we had a great deal. I only have 1 complaint. 1st there was some sort of issue with another cusomer and at 10:30 at night they were moved to the room above us. They were takling very loud outside and then when they got in the upstairs room the floor was very squeeky. We turned on the AC to drown out the noise. Thankfully they went right to sleep. The "free" continential breakfast was coffee and Donuts the kids liked the donuts.

Room Tip: May want a top floor to avoid a noisy ceiling.

It's a last minute's booking since we changed our plan a little bit.
Got this one through priceline in which the ranking was good.
Terrible terrible terrible place!

The location is very bad, I don't feel safe when drove there.
The room smelled bad, not clean, even may have bedbugs.
I won't recommend anyone stay there.

I love this Mom and Pop owned hotel. It's a little old and out of date but the friendly service and clean rooms are great for the price. We usually spend between 65 to 80 bucks for 4 of us to stay one night. Owner is really friendly and understanding that we come here just to party!

Rooms are hit or miss, some or nicer then other some leave a lot more to be desired. We've been coming here 3 years in a row! Always great service.
