This motel remains under renovation. We had an old room but it was clean and comfortable for the two nights we needed it. Cable was cut so no TV the first night. They gave us a DVD to watch. The free breakfast was good. The facility was able to handle our group of over 150 people. I understand that the...

Stayed here for the weekend. From the outside didn't look like much but you can Tell they are in the process of remodeling to make it better. They did go above and beyond to make our stay here good. In the future I'm sure this will turn to be a good hotel.

The city is great, and there is a lot of places to see. I stayed at this hotel for 1 night, the room was very clean which is very important to me. The hotel is also right next to a stop for the shuttle to take you to where you can get The Old Trolley Tour of the city. Also...

I stayed here for two nights, and it was disgusting. I was given a room that had just been renovated, but renovations were not complete. I tried to be understanding, as I thought maybe they were recovering from recent hurricane damage, but the entire place (inside and out) was covered in dust from them cutting tiles. The crew of workmen...

We had a fantastic time. We stayed for my birthday weekend. Very impressed with the owner who was on-site each morning during breakfast. He was AWESOME!!!! They went above and beyond with making sure we were happy with our stay. They are remodeling, so I look forward to staying again to see the improvements. I would not hesitate to recommend...

This property was under a remodel. All the furniture was thrown out in the halls in front of the guest rooms. The mattresses from the remodeled rooms were piled in laundry room on floor. The existing room was stinky and the safe in the room was locked, so we were unable to use it for our valuables. The hotel offers...

I booked this room at last minute. The rooms are being Renovated. I got a updated room it was large and had a huge jacuzzi. The room was pretty clean and a solid rating of 3. Price was good for this size of a room. Pool looked like it needed cleaning.

We needed a place for one night before our return flight home so we chose this based on pics (showed the water side view and the pool). Check in was easy and the front desk (Gary) was extremely polite. We were put on the back side which faces the water. Oh yeah....it's also got a set of railroad tracks right...

All four desk staff we dealt with went out of their way to provide personal service. When there was a problem with taxi transportation they stepped up and solved the problem. They even picked up dirty plates from the breakfast table while we were eating. Incidentally the breakfast was above average with waffles, eggs (two kinds), toasted bagels, fresh fruit...

“Choose the front if you don't like the trains going by out back. Also, choose away from wherever the renovation is being done.”
