“It's motel 6”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

This is a no frills affordable SPI stay. We had three rooms each with two beds slightly smaller than doubles and a wall mounted flat screen. They varied slightly in size. There was just enough room for our luggage and my son's playpen but not much else. The shower and water worked well and the rooms were clean and looked like they had a recent cheap and simplistic renovation. The pool area in the back was tiny and clean.The air conditioner worked really well.
The service was average. It took a little coaxing to be moved into a non smoking room at first but it was resolved. On the third day one of our beds was not made but it was probably because we accidentally left a tote bag on the bed. We had to request to be moved from one of the rooms after the first day because we saw at 3 roaches within the first 12 hours. The room was on the first floor on the left side of the hotel. Neither of the other two rooms nor the replacement room had that problem.
The location was great. We walked 5 minutes to the beach the first day and were just 10 minutes driving distance from most places(the island is small).
Overall, if you are on a budget and are looking for a place to sleep after long days out, this is an option. If you're traveling and are expecting anything more than that then you need to look elsewhere.

Excellent location, room is great and outstanding service. Have paid more and got less. The rooms are Clean and very well kept. I like the TV mounted on the wall. This location has on site washer and dryer available. Walking distance to the shore. Next door is an excellent restaurant - good food and service there!

The staff was nice. However the room that we were put in smelled wet, there was an AC problem. We had to switch rooms at 3AM because the AC was not cooling. Apparently none of the AC's work because even the second room did not get cool, we all slept with no covers. The AC was not as a bad of a problem as all the roaches that were crawling around. I would not recommend that anyone give a single dollar to this place. Do not be fooled by the "renovations"

I was attacked by vicious bed bugs after taking a 2 hour nap when we first arrived. I was itching the rest of the day! A/C did not work and the room stayed at around 85 degrees in mid July. The woman at the desk couldn't care less when I asked her about it. Had to go to walmart and buy a fan at midnight just to be able to sleep. ONLY 5 channels worked on the TV and it was super slow with bad reception. Had to cancel our second day and check out and then our vacation went MUCH better! Trust me, just spend a bit more on a better place! This place truly sucks. Oh yeah, TINY SHOWER AND ROOM!! Shower was literally like like 1 ft by 1 ft. Not close to the beach unless you wanna cross heavy traffic and walk a few blocks.. Only good thing is that the morning we checked out a new manager seemed to actually care and gave us a $50 credit along with a refund for the second day... I've never been the type to complain, but this motel thoroughly sucked! Take my warning if you are wise and don't want your girl to be pissed at you...

Yeah, its true that I got sick. We spent one night there, arrived fully healthy, and the next morning we were sick to our stomachs and I lost my voice. So, we went to the island doctor and he said to check the room for mold or mildew. I took the pillow case off of my pillow and my pillow was black and green. I had slept on that pillow all night long. We took it back to the doctor and he said that is what made us sick. We returned to the hotel to show them the pillow and they apologized and then promptly refunded our money and even offered a free nights stay, to which we declined. They also paid us back for the doctor's visit. ($100) They asked for the pillow back, but I don't know if they threw it away or not. Just remember you get what you pay for. Fork up a few more bucks and go to LaQuinta, or someplace else.
