“what it used to be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2007

If you are needing a place to lay your head and you miss what it was like before double digit night stays. This is the place. No frills. Nothing fancy. Clean room and a place to park the car on a busy Memorial weekend. Actually, the only time we were in the room was during a break from being on the beach. All staff were courteous. Housekeeping did an excellent job on the room. We will return and thank you.

Yes, this hotel is old...but, if you don't have lots of money to spend on a room you won't be in very much because you're out in the sun, then stay here! Found the staff to be helpful re area restaruants, etc. Nice to have a microwave and small fridge in the room for such low prices. You can walk right out the door to the pier for coffee and sunrise in the AM. If you want luxury and pampering and high prices, stay somewhere else. If you just need some clean sheets after a day "at the beach" - this is it!

Stayed for two nights with family. Had two rooms, the only two with what they refer to as "ocean view" which was over the roofs of two buildings. Rooms were old, dirty, and carpet was so bad in one room you could have tripped. Elevator broke for one day, stranding parents on third floor. A cockroach in one room big enough to cart the suitcases. One room's roof leaked requiring a change in rooms. NO one responded to the leak at the time of the move, nor the next day by checkout. When we left, the front office was still closed, and I believe we were the only ones there. We did turn the lights out!
