Okay, let's be straight here, this is a party town and the majority of inhabitants are here to enjoy the surf by day and debauchery at night. So the emphasis is on somewhere to flop. That being said, this place was a dump. Though the day staff was very friendly and accommodating, their hotel and the night staff was something of a jail house environment. The 1st floor room was essentially a cement room(that includes the bed frame! which doubles as the box spring) that needed a serious coat of paint, the replacement of molding that must've been removed from the room years ago, the tv where the cable cord was hanging from a hole in the wall, and the mattress that defies the worst possible worn out flea bag hotel in the states. During the late afternoon, I had to 'fight' with the night manager to give us replacement towels that we used for the beach and showers in the morning. And this was WITH me giving him the two used towels IN TRADE! They put the word native in the pharse going native. Avoid this hotel at all costs, there are many better, less expensive hostels/hotels down the street, including the beach itself. Trust me, I gone to some really basic hotels with very low expectations, and there are many better options nearby this hotel. This place was bad even by spring break cheap hotels....the only reason they didn't get a terrible was that there is someone who doesn't really crash at their hotel anyway and just wants a place to change their clothes or bring someone home in the dark of the night.
