It was quite, clean and the staff were kind and caring. I'll definitely stay at this place again and again. Location was superb and the area was full of little cute places and perfect for a morning walk by the beach.

There's a laundry room for clothes..every room has a view of the...

The price is very high for a dated and old structure, price is made just by the location that is in front of PB. When checkin in, the courtesy of the personnel is excellent, but once in the room your attention goes to the smell likely due to overused/old floor carpet. If you open the window, you're hit by the...

This was one of the best hotels I have stayed at. The room was perfect for my brother and I. The only downside was that the floor seemed to be damp around the tv area and we weren't sure why. Our view was amazing because we had a balcony that looked out over the pool and could see the ocean...

We stay here at least 4 times a year! You won't find a better place to stay. I recommend it to all my family and friends. Everything that you could possibly need is within walking distance. Great places to eat, the beach and shopping.

A great location for a good price and a nice, clean room with ocean view and a pool. Walking distance from a lot of good bars,restaurants and shops. It's pretty much on the beach. Friendly staff as well!

Everyone was very accommodating and great customer service. I enjoyed the stay. The only thing was the bathroom smelled of poop the entire time. I kept the door closed. Otherwise, very enjoyable stay.
