We were shocked at the trashy, cheesy room we walked into. When we went to complain they refused to return our money. This place was so bad it was a wreck, dirty and the worst part was the lack of qualified management and ownership. terrible. never even consider staying here.

We searched for budget first and were absolutely taken by the website photos. Needless to say "it aint nuttin" like the pics. These are old very tiny bungalows that have been shamelessly, poorly patched together to look like 2 facing rows of buildings, You cannot park your car in front of your room. Our "deluxe efficiency" was actually an old...

DISGUSTING AND NASTY HOTEL!!!!!!! I had reservation in the hotel from 12/26/10 to 01/01/11. When I arrived to the hotel we received a call that we had a family emergency and we need it to go back. To add to that, the room was dirty, all the dishes, pods and pans and plates were disgusting and the bathroom cover in...

Reservation made over phone after viewing online. Looks beachy and very clean, new paint. The resort totally misrepresented the size of room for our group. After asking "Are you sure and there will be no surprises?", well we got the surprise of our life. Our room was a rehabed single wide short trailer which has been connected to a row...

To start with, we decided against staying there... we had booked our room but when we checked in, we were in shock! The room was an old bungalow that needed a good renovation... The air was unbreathable, the bathroom was a closet... it was just awful! The bungalows were located by the Ocean but it did not make up for...

Pros: It's right on the beach. It is cheap (there is a reason). The kitchen is convenient. Cons: The spiderweb in the bathroom (filled with ants) was a special touch. I had to ask for a hairdryer from the office, which was at another property 300 feet down the road. The hairdryer was not readily available when I asked, so...

When you book with this "resort" (and this goes for the other 2 adjacent properties they operate) you will have to pay "in full" up front. (No refunds unless canceled at least 2 weeks before stay!) I asked when I checked in if I was paid in full as I saw something online when I booked about a $13.50 "service...

My husband and I booked a room at Bonefish Resort through Orbitz. The room smelled like stale cigarette smoke and was extremely dirty. There were bugs everywhere, and there were holes in the sheets. We refused to stay there, and promptly returned the key to the office. We were offered an "upgrade" and declined. Unfortunately, the desk clerk told us...

......The room rate was $149.00 on Fantasy Fest Weekend. I checked in on October 30th, and the manager did not know if someone else was already in my room.

I stayed at this resort while my son was in the local hospital and although I was not there for pleasure, I felt relaxed from reservation to check out. The front desk staff was so accomdating and extremely nice. I explained why I was in town and they were so sympathetic. I couldn't have asked for a nicer place stay....
