I made reservations early, based on the misleading pictures on the net. When we got there (two rooms, 4 people in each room) it took us over an hour to get a space in the parking lot. I was told there were 40 spaces, in reality there are 15 max. He tried to charge me 20 to park (website says 10) he also wanted me to give him my keys so he could "jockey the cars around when it got busy". The rooms are not big enough for 4 people (they are about the size of my daughters bedroom). My room never got cleaned...it was nasty dirty. We were supposed to have an "ocean view" , we had a view of the old broken beds they threw out ). No towels, wash clothes, or even bed linens. At 9:00 p.m I finally got our beds made (I had to help him make them) by 10:15 p.m I finally got towels and wash clothes (3 for the whole weedend for 8 people). We had to take out our own trash, and the guy running the place (Mike) was swearing and arguing with me in front of my children. I complained to the man who supposedly owns the building (nice guy) but not nice enough to offer me and kind of resolution, or restitution. The worst hotel I have EVER stayed at!
