Now we knew we were staying at a motel since we wanted to save money for a later trip we have planned. With that said, we were happy to have a mini fridge and microwave. The top shelf of the fridge wasn't working very well so I had to constantly move our food around to make sure it didn't spoil. The bed was fine for me but my husband found it uncomfortable. The remote was barely hanging on a thread.
As far as cleanliness, the first day when we got back from the beach they had cleaned the room only to find the same dead bug from the night before still there. The following day, nobody cleaned our room. We didn't care to much but on the third day, we really wanted our room cleaned since we had been to the beach everyday and sand was accumulating everywhere. When we came back from the beach, nobody had cleaned it yet. I peaked and noticed the cleaning cart was further down and would probably get to the room eventually. We each managed to take a shower and get ready for our day and still nobody had showed up. My husband opened the door and noticed that the cleaning cart was gone. We proceeded to call the office to ask for housekeeping. We called about 10 times with no answer. I decided to call from my cell phone through their regular line and they picked up right away. The lady said someone would be there shortly. We decided to sit by the pool to let them clean. We probably were there for about an hour before someone showed up to clean our room.
Also, if you value sleep, don't get room 116 or the surrounding rooms. It is literally right in front of the pool and it was pretty loud since there were a lot of kids there.
