This is an older property which could probably do with updating, however, I found it very good value for money considering the location, which is one block from Ocean Drive. Check-in(and check-out) was very easy, friendly and professional, I had a corner room on the ground floor (1st floor US), which was super spacious, it had a separate "walk-in" wardrobe. The room had a safe, A/C (loud but very effective) old-style TV (no flatscreen), desk and chair. There was no fridge or coffee-making facilities. The bathroom was small but had a powerful shower with plenty of hot water. Both room and bathroom were very clean, although housekeeping didn't clean the room until 5 p.m., which wasn't that great. Breakfast and free WIFI are included with the daily resort fee which is payable separately.
Breakfast was a bit of a sorry affair, the buffet was arranged in the bar, which is really narrow and there tended to be a long queue. Breakfast itself was taken in the lobby, again, not the cosiest of environment, however, there were also tables outside. It's all plastic and styrofoam cups and plates and really only serves as getting something in one's stomach rather than a pleasant experience. Breakfast items were fruit, yoghurts, muffins, bagels, etc.
This is definitely a budget hotel - there was a musty smell in the lobby, hallway and carpets are really due an update, however, I would not have been able to find another hotel in the same location at that price and for the time I actually spent there, it did me perfectly well. I would stay there again if I got a good price, however, I would hesitate to pay more than I did.
