My stay at the hotel was excellent. The rooms have all been updated and were nicer than I expected. The hotel is an older hotel but the rooms were clean, beds very comfortable and staff is very friendly and goes out of their way to make sure you have a great stay.

Our stay was planned for 3 days but we loved it so much we added another day and thought very seriously about adding a 5th day. The bed was very comfortable, room was clean, view was great and location could not be beat. It was a case of location, location, location. The lady who worked in the office was very...

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay here. Our renovations will continue. Yes, we do allow small pets. Every now and then larger dogs will be here, because they are service dogs and we cannot legally refuse them. Thank you so much for posting such a nice review!

Room was recently renovated with an updated decor. Too bad they stopped short of a complete renovation. The outdated kitchen cabinets, counter tops, & appliances remain & totally clash with the new modern decor. Room was spacious & clean. Beds are extra firm. No hairdryer, no elevator! Staff was friendly. Nice large pool outdoor seating. Parking is limited.

Kitchenettes are going to be upgraded as well. We just haven't gotten to them yet. We are also going to put hairdryers, irons, and ironing boards in all rooms. In the meantime, they are available at the front desk. We too wish we had an elevator! We appreciate your staying with us and posting a review! Thank you!

We arrived to the motel to be told that the motel was full that night and that parking would be hard so if we wanted to guarantee our spot not to move from it. We later learned that this motel is actually short enough spots for each unit. We were told of some eatery placed near by to walk to...

Would highly recommend to anyone in a budget and looking to stay right on the beach. Putt putt gold right across the road and lots a yummy restaurants near by. Souvenir shops and other shopping not far. Daytona is just a couple of miles or so on down . Beautiful area and not crowded and I went in July. 2016....

Our room was clean, attractive and everything the website advertised. Staff was helpful and very nice. I would certainly go there again. The pool was also great - at night the pool lights changed colors - really neat. Overall great experience.

This hotel has a great view of the ocean, and is not so expensive that you can't enjoy other things to do at the beach. Pool is very pretty and has nice palm trees around it. The room itself is a bit dated, but is good for the cost. Really when you're at the beach who spends a lot of...

Yes this hotel was under refurbishment, but there was not one but four COCKROACHES that we had to kill that were two to two and a half inches long! The only enjoyable thing about our hotel was that the view was amazing...but I can deal with not having a great view if it means me having to sleep with cockroaches!...

The large roaches you speak of live in the palm trees. They do get in the rooms when balcony doors are left open. We apologize that you had to experience the ugly pests. They are not from a lack of cleaning or pest control.
