We have stayed here 6 different times. Enjoyed each visit. We arrived several weeks after the hurricane. All was in great shape except for restaurant and bar which were closed.. Always eclectic group of guests. The friendliest bunch you will meet. This Hotel just seems to be attractive to very friendly people. Rooms are very basic (no TV, no phone),...

Thank you, calmseas1, for your fisherman's point of view. Much appreciated! Yup... we've been a favorite budget property for the fishermen since day one. Our huge, recently renovated, walk in freezer for their catch each day is one of the many reasons. Plus the free Wi-Fi, swimming pool and outside bar and friendly faces are a draw for the folks....

This is a great place for the value traveler. Walk to everything. Lots of food and activities very close. Super friendly people at the desk and around the hotel. Baja Peppers is good, but I miss Spencers.

Thank you Jay D for your review. We are so glad you returned and appreciate you positive words. Value and location are so important and obviously you appreciate both.

I have been staying here since 2010; you cannot beat the price, location (10 minute walk to the marina), or staff. Everything here is perfect.

I love this place, always clean, friendly great rates and location. Last New Years, however, I was bothered by the groups cooking outdoors, hanging their laundry all over the place and stringing lights, rearranging patio furniture etc. For the first time in ten years of staying there, I really felt like I was staying in a campground, not a hotel....
