Property was very old and outdated. No top sheet was provided, all the bed linens felt damp. Staff was limited open 9-8pm. If you have a problem after 8pm no one there. I’m sorry can not recommend, Hilton down the street maybe a better choice for picky travelers like me.

We chose this vintage hotel for its convenient location to amenities, beach and family. It did not disappoint. Rooms are not plush but comfortable. That was not top on our list. Staff, pool, restaurant was very accommodating! We will stay again. Property simplicity was great.

Exterior needs updating. Room was ok: wish it had a microwave. TV channel listing was incorrect. Pool was clean, deck chairs could be updated. We didn’t know about the morning coffee till the day we left. Tiki Bar was very popular with way too much smoking. Staff was very friendly. They sure worked a lot of hours.

We're sorry to hear you were bothered by the noise, we would have gladly moved you to another room. In regards to contracting Covid, that can happen any place at any time.
