We recently stayed at this hotel. As others have stated, the hotel is old, dated, grungy and rundown.
The location can't be beat - it is right on the beach. We got a suite on the 2nd floor and from the balcony, you could see the ocean & hear the surf. The beach itself is beautiful.
The room was awful - when you walk in, there are 2 very uncomfortable dble beds w/small lumpy pillows in the first room. This room overlooks the parking lot & is noisy because it's exterior. The room a/c unit is 6 inches from one of the beds, so if you like cold air blowing right on you when you sleep, you will enjoy it. We didn't like it, so had to shut it off. In the bedroom are an open closet area, cheap dresser and old t.v. Off that room is the galley-style kitchenette that has a mini frig, microwave, coffee maker, very small sink & 2 burner stove top. The kitchenette was sparsely supplied with some dishes, eating utensils and pots/pans. I think it would be hard to fix a meal in there.
Off that room is an old bathroom w/fiberglass tub/shower combo and then a sitting room w/dingy sofa and old t.v. Then a door to balcony and ocean view. The furniture on the balcony is plastic, wobbly and had never been cleaned from the looks of it.
The whole place, including carpet, ceiling tiles, bathroom were all dated & in need of updating & repairs.
While this place is rundown, the room had been cleaned and the main areas were cleaned regularly. The staff there is very friendly & helpful.
The continental breakfast was nice - they have a waffle station, different hot & cold cereals, fresh fruit, canned juices, yogurt, muffins/danish, coffee & tea. There were workers there keeping everything filled & cleaning tables. The breakfast room overlooks the pools & ocean, so that is wonderful.
The smoke alarm started chirping around 6 a.m. (low battery?) and I reported it at check-out and they made a note of it. I think that even though this place is old & grungy, they are cleaning it on a regular basis and trying to maintain it as is.
If you stay there for the view, and don't mind rustic surroundings, then you'll enjoy this place. Just know this going into it. My preference is very clean, updated, more upscale, so this just wasn't my style.
