We stayed here at the request of a friend who booked the hotel. The value was very good for being on the beach and close to nearby attractions. We usually stay in higher level hotels and from the pictures, it did not look bad, so we gave it a shot.
Overall, you get what you pay for. While the value for location was excellent, the hotel, despite some renovations is in need for more substantial work. There is rust on the doors, the baths have evidence of mildew, although there were clean, but the hotel in general is dated.
On the bright side, the staff was both friendly and helpful and as others have pointed out, the beds were very comfortable. On the negative, the pool did not seem too clean and they did not do a great job of replenishing pool towels. Again, you get what you pay for and if you are looking for bargain basement prices for the beach, then do not expect 4 or 5 star accommodations.
