“You get what you pay for.”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

The cost per night of our room was around $90 per night. We stayed two nights. There were pros and cons. I saw an earlier review where the manager replied and said they were making improvements. From what I saw I believe him. The room was old and outdated but it was clean. They did provide a fridge and lots of towels and compliementary toiletry items. The bed was comfortable. The location is excellent. Just a few blocks down from Garnett which is a sweet spot for alot of the action in the area. There was plenty of parking and the hotel workers were friendly. We checked in late and found out the tv made a humming noise. After bringing it to the front desks attention the following morning, they promptly replaced it with another one that worked fine. While I had the maintenance man there, I had him tighten up the power socket next to the bed where the sconse lighting plugged in, that fixed that problem. Because the doors open to the outside, and this is a beach town with younger crowds, we did hear alot of late night noise. But thats to be expected at most hotels in the price range.

We had not checked any reviews before checking in to this hotel, however we had found many good hotels the same way on our trip before. We arrived at PB in the evening, looking for a hotel room for 2 nights. The rate given was in comparison to rest of the motels at the PB very good, so we just thought we made a bargain...what a mistake
Arriving in the evening meant we did not see too much, which had been better that way. Waking up to the same weard smell we had the evening before, we looked around the room...More or less everything seemed very old and broken...The windows were so dirty I think they have never been cleaned before, a tile in the shower was missing and seemed to be fixed with a chewing gum, the bed cover was very dirty and had various stains, only one power socket was working, so I had to dry my hair next to the entrance door instead of the bathroom... Anyway we thought we stay here only for 2 nights, so arriving back in the evening late that day, of course no one had cleaned the room or done the beds.
Well it was an experience, which we hope not do do again...I would recommend to spend a little more and stay away from this hotel!!!!

I'm responding to this review because I can definately understand your concerns. This property had many isseus before we took over ownership and management in early February. I have to admit that most of everything you stated was quickly fixed or resolved. If you were to check in again, you would notice the differences before even getting to your guest room. Our plans are to make this one of the best values in PB by the end of the summer! Thank you again, and I hope you'll give us another chance in the very near future.
