Location is great. Convenient to the beach, the pier and restaurants. Beds were firm but matresses sagged in the middle and springs were noisy. They should have been replaced some time ago. Light over the sink was too dim and not much use unless i was directly under it which put me too close to the mirror. Employees were all friendly and helpful. Overall we enjoyed our visit in spite of the few negatives and would go back again.

The only problem I encountered was they had accidentally put me in a smoking room, when I reserved a non smoking room. But the staff quickly changed rooms without hesitation. It had nice tile floors, the fridge and microwave worked great Looked like it had been recently painted. They had a nice breakfast pastries, cereals, fruit, juice coffee and milk. Its literally just 2-3 minutes from the beach walking....I have stayed at most of the hotels on the beach and this by far has been the best one.

Older hotel but it has been updated. For the price and location, it’s worth the money, just don’t expect a 4 star hotel, it’s a true 1970’s motel with some updates.

Dingy bedding, bathroom door knob was falling off, the front door looked like werewolves had tried to scratch through the door to get to the previous occupants. Wifi had such a weak signal that no browser activity was possible.

Get what you pay for

Hotel staff was great. Room, not so much. Comforter appeared dirty with stains throughout it. Pushed to foot of bed and did not use. Shower was either real cold or scolding hot, no in between. Shampoo tamper seal was broke as if it was previously used. Glad I brought my own.

Close to beach but

Pros: Location
Cons: The room really should be updated.
Location: Location was the best thing about this hotel. Close to beach and plenty of good restaurants.
The room was overpriced for the age and condition of the room. They show the newer style rooms in most of the pictures. I would choose a different hotel if I ever go back.

Close to the beach and that's all

The rooms are filthy! My 9 month old was crawling on the floor and his hands and feet were black. Our sheets had hair on them. We changed rooms to one that had hard floors instead of carpet and got a new pair of sheets. There were socks from the previous people left beside the bed. Our room wasn't serviced the three nights were there. Had everyone not been booked we would have left. Close walk to the beach is the only thing going for it.
