Outstanding service from John!! Very friendly and helped us throughout the entire day. Was very aware of his surroundings. He ran a few chair scavengers off that didn't pay for the chairs. He gave us some recommendations for activities and restaurants in the area. He was very prompt on setting up the area you wanted. No waiting. Thanks again John!!

Great hotel on a beautiful beach. John who mans the beach rentals was great and made sure we were well taken care of and happy. Pool is awesome after a day on the beach. Had a caricature picture done by Rob in the lobby. What an engaging and funny man! Would recommend to anyone to stay here!

Stayed here for four nights. The pool is gorgeous, and of course, the beach is there. But the "renovated" rooms are old and crummy for the price. Dirty wooden floors, leaky shower, mold on the bathroom tile. No elevator. Much noise comes through the walls. Parking is very difficult, since the hotel allows paid parking from beachgoers there, using most...

Essentially a motel with an extra coat of paint. The manager is a low class jerk who bullies his customers with lofty lies and boastful narcissistic claims. The crowd at the hotel is overwhelmingly drunk and out of control 20 somes mixed with a few poor parents with children who mistakenly booked the hotel for what it was advertised online....

We stayed here for three nights for a friends wedding. Great location on a beautiful beach! This was about it for this motel. We knew going in it wasn't a luxury resort so we were prepared so we thought. Arrived at the room and we didn't have any air. Called front desk and they were "sending" maintenance. Got back to...

One word: love! I met a friend here for the weekend and it was a great time. I have traveled to many places, and loved the character this place has. Great food and people! John is wonderful!

This place is decent, the courtyard, staff, tiki bar and views were great, but this needs a lot of work. Our room faced the parking lot, I was very concerned walking in. It seemed seedy. Not worth $225 a night. Maybe you're paying more for the view and location, but paint covering up an old motel. They're trying, I'll give...

Hotel shaped like a U, courtyard & pool in the middle. Hotel bar & restaurant and a beach bar. Visited the beginning of spring break, a lot of kids, but hotel definitely had a wide mix of people, and the kids weren't a problem. Room was clean, bed was very comfortably. Pool is very big & clean. The beach, nice...

My wife and I stayed here for 3 days. It was our first time away together in 23 years. When we first pulled up I was nervous with the looks. We got to our room and it was awsome. Very modern room. If you are a Ritz kind of person probably not for you but we loved the whole experiance....

Thank you for the great review especially on the staff. We take pride in our customer service and are very careful on who we hire to make sure they fit our culture. We will be giving the outside of the hotel a face lift very soon with a fresh look. Hurry back and see us soon.
