I walked in and I felt like I was in the Twilight Zone. The lobby is very outdated and dirty. The lady at the front desk was very nice, but she gave me the key to that was occupied. I walked in on guests in bed. I then received a key to room 219 and the room was dirty, and little bugs were in the bathroom. I pulled back the covers and saw stains on the sheets and blankets.

I met an employee by the name of Attwane and he was VERY nice and had me moved to a room on the 3rd floor. The room was a little better, but the people on that floor looked like they just escaped from prison, smoking weed in their room and having a party. DO NOT STAY at this property. The AC unit in my room sound like a freight train every time it went on.

I stayed up all night and could not wait to check out the next morning.

Room Tip: DO NOT stay here!!!!!

We stayed as part of the cruise package. It was a nightmare. It was in the ghetto, our room wasn't ready 3 hours after check-in, the food was old cafeteria style, the staff acted like they hate being there and when we asked for another pillow, we got towels. A king sized bed had two of the smallest pillows I have ever seen. I was so happy to get out of there.

Room Tip: Dont do it!

I stayed in this motel the weekend of July 17th through July 20th, 2014. After reading the reiews, I expected the worst. The only problem I had at all was the air conditioner in the room; it didn't cool that well, but did ok.

I read the reviews before I want but at that point I couldn't get out of my stay without even more cost.

The room itself was old and a bit rundown but okay. The service and the food on the other hand was unacceptable! We were (as I believe most everyone in the hotel was) there because it was a package deal that required a "time share" talk. All I can say is that out package" included" our meals there but the food was so poor that we ate out and chose to pay. Flanigan's Seafood Bar & Grill is walking distance from the hotel and the portions are big and the food is wonderful.

If you are as unsatisfied with the food as I was PLEASE tell a manager. I let several people know that my party of 6 were very unsatisfied. I was told more than once that they NEVER get complaints and that my complaint was the first time they have ever been told any of this. :-)
