I liked the location of hotel, it had an old charm to it. I didn't like that the TV was not programmed and the message was to contact the office. The phone in the room didn't work. I had to walk 3 flights of stairs because the elevator was not working. Then there was no one available to help.

The staff was overly helpful, even hiring a Lyft driver and paying for it herself! She stayed with us and continued to call about our taxi, which never arrived.

It has great potential but not done. Ceiling peeling, and balcony door fell off, floor was constantly wet, don't know why and cable not working in some rooms. Lite garbage outside. On the plus side , our cable was great, hot water great , beds clean and continental breakfast good and no early cut off. Of course the view is great

Hateful clerk. There is no good reason to be rude. I will never stay here! I do NOT recommend this worn down hotel for anyone!

The property was super close to the beach and I loved that. The attendant did accommodate me with a room with a beautiful view. But the next day I had to change rooms due to leaking from the ceiling. A huge puddle almost made me fall. Also at night there were lots of water bugs by the pool area.

No coffee maker, fridge , or microwave in the room. This is such an inconvenience early in the morning. It was freezing in an our room 50 degree's. Had to switch it from cool to heat as it would not cut off. No tv.

The view of the ocean was outstanding. Even though the air conditioner was noisy, the room was cool. Sheets & towels were clean. However, even though the disinterested staff had cable tv in the office, apparently none of the rooms had tv. We probably killed about 25 adult & baby cockroaches in 3 days in our room. The shower water pressure was very low, but more importantly, after 3-4 minutes in the shower, there was NO cold water, & the shower water became scalding hot. Finally, the interior of the rickety outside elevator (4 floor facility) was hot, the elevator moved very slowly & jerked at both start & stop. Most importantly, the elevator inspection information, required by law, had been removed. I have stayed at The Commodore almost every summer for 20 years. But I believe, with the current management, that this hotel is definitely overpriced, & I won’t return.

I booked this hotel for the "oceanview". The only view i had was the pool. The tv didnt work, there was no hot water, and there were dead bugs in the bathtub.
