Though the staff was polite, helpful (when needed), & friendly...that is pretty much where the positives end for our experience. My wife, our son, & I stayed here from late January to early February (for about 7 days). The room was dirty, I had to ask for new towels/hand towels/wash clothes each time, the water pressure & temperature was lacking, the shower water leaked behind the paint (causing old water to settle & bubble), & there were small ants in our room which got on us and in our food. The worst thing was...one evening when returning to our room (I believe room 11), there was a trail of blood going from the front area all the way back passed our room. No one knew where it came from or what happened. When it was "cleaned up", that was only done with water and maybe a Swiffer. Did not seem very sanitary, we were never told what actually happened, and did not leave us feeling very comfortable. We were all highly disappointed, felt we greatly wasted our money compared to what we got, would not recommend this place, & will not be staying here in the future.

Dear Guest, Thank you for staying with us! I want to apologize for the inconvenience, one of our guest accidentally cut his foot on the street, but our housekeepers deeply cleaned everything after that. We regret that your visit did not seem to meet your expectations. Warm regards

Dear Leandro, I am sorry that it happened and we didn't accomodate you. First of all we didn't charge you for the bed you booked online. We have a private rooms at our Motel and we have a dorms (male, female, mix). You booked 2 beds in female dorm, that's why we couldn't give you the bed to stay with a ladies in a room. And we were sold out, so we didn't have any bed in a male dorm to switch your beds. Next time please pay more attention to the room type you book online or give us a call and we will explain everything. Warm regards.

No soap/shampoo holder in the shower. No ice machine. The rest of the room was very nice, for the price. The staff was very nice and helpful.

The property was in a wonderful location. A few blocks from southern most point in the USA, south end Du Val street and the south side beaches. Lots of nice places to eat close by. The property was dated, but clean. The beds were comfy and the bedding was clean. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We arrived at midnight, they were up and ready to assist. Parking, though limited, was enough along with the free street parking.
