The front desk was friendly. They were accommodating. It was a busy day so they didn't let us check in early. We were able to use all the amenities until our room was ready. The room was average but the air conditioner had a stale smell when it came on. They would only allow us one parking pass but we had two cars. One of us had to park off property and pay $20!!! Other then the parking the hotel was not bad.

I am glad that you found my front desk friendly and accommodating. I apologize for the challenges with parking. Unfortunately, parking is very limited at the beach and like most hotels in the area we do allow one vehicle per room. I apologize for inconvenience that this may have created for you. I hope that you visit us again.

Extremely loud and drunk neighbors. Pretty much 75% of clientele is the same. Its definitely not a place for a family. Drunk and belligerent and flat out disrespectful guests. Front desk is just as worthless. Broken glass litters the only walkway to the beach. That can be thanked to all the drunks and hookers at the toasted monkey.you have to walk with your family to the beach right by this place. No way around it.gunfire / fireworks being lit off from balconies at hotel.customer cars littered with fireworks debris.absolutely terrible.

I am sorry that you had a bad experience during your visit. It is unfortunate that some guests are not as gracious to each other as they should be. We do have security working nights during our busy season. I apologize that you feel this was not enough.

The hotel is older but well kept a very busy place, they got us into our room early which was a nice plus! The hotel has a restaurant and a bar connected to it but was still quite at night.
