I had stayed at this property before, and it was fine. Nothing special, but it was OK with no complaints. I visited recently, scheduling my stay not knowing that the hotel had been badly damaged in a hurricane and that the entire hotel was a construction zone. The condition of the hotel was chaotic, cluttered, crowded with workers and NOISY,...

Love this place. It's right up against the beach in a residential area. Very quiet. The oceanfront rooms offer stunning sunrises. There is a nice full service bar and restaurant downstairs and the check-in staff is always pleasant. This is perfect for a night or two if your traveling for business and want a taste of the beach.

The hotel is disgusting, its falling apart and Im sure the Health department would not be happy. Floors are soaking wet, rooms smell like vomit, old items let from prior guests, insulin left in the fridge, etc. It was non-stop issues. We had 35 guests and almost everyone had problems ranging from ants to plaster falling to toilet not mounted...

My first impressions upon checking in: I had an oceanside room. Great view. The bathtub had hairs from previous occupants draped around the side. Not a great view. The facility is generally somewhat rundown, and cleanliness is substandard. The bed was reasonably comfortable, and I really liked having a microwave & refrigerator in the room Most of the staff were...

I really appreciate them booking my family of 5 (3 teen kids) for a single room at a very short notice for a very short stay. This was during the peak season in summer.

This hotel is located right on the beach. You go down to the pool and through the gate and onto the sand of the beach. That is the best part of this hotel. The lobby is very nice and the front desk staff is polite. It is also a pet friendly hotel for an extra $25 per night. Once in...
