I am not picky. But this hotel is an embarrassment! All furniture covered in dust. Remote didn't work. There were no towels. Had to ask for some. No gel, just soap size of a dime. I'd give this 0 stars

We had trouble finding the place, since the address is wrong. Got twin beds instead of a double bed. One was broken. Roaches were climbing on the walls in broad day light. TV was from the 80's. Shower was horrible. Not much of a view. If I could give it a zero rating I would. Don't stay there.

We needed a place to crash for one night & thought it would be fun to sleep on a house boat. Beautiful in the morning. We wished the boat swayed in the water more & the bed wasn't comfortable but it was clean, quaint & we stayed in a houseboat in Key West!

Really terribble rooms. We found a bug in the bed when we arrived there. The rooms are so simple and old and small. Beds are not comfortable and airconditioner is loud. Close to big road very disturbing. The owner does not seem to care with all these bad reviews which are giving a correct picture. We paid 120 $ which...

I usually am not very picky if I don't plan to be in the room that much, but this was absolutely terrible. I thought maybe the other reviews I saw just happened to be unlucky, but every review is 100% accurate. I can't believe this was $140 a night! Cockroaches, ants, disgusting floors with sand and hair all over, the...

I was looking for just a basic hotel since I didn't plan on staying in the room much. It was the most awful depressing thing I have been in and it was $150 during the week. I have taken pictures of what we found. We got our money back and there were two other couples that got their money refunded...

This is a very basic hotel. Rooms are dated, furniture old. Bed was comfortable. Room was clean. We stayed two nights, but no extra towels or maid service after the first night. We would have had an issue with a very noisy window air conditioner, but the evening temperatures allowed the A/C unit to be turned off without discomfort. We...

Started off baddly when we went to the address given to us on the reservation confirmation and it turned out to be 1 mile north. Got there at 2:30 and a sign on the door said back at 3:00. Someone else was there who had driven 20 hours and had been told they couldn't check in because they had to...

The "motel" was the worst place I have ever stayed. Right on the highway so you can hear every car that drove by, trucks actually shook the place. Terrible bed, mattress was so soft in the middle it almost folded. No headboard so the pillows fell off and once they hit the ground you didn't want to pick them up...

Room was spacious and clean. The owner was friendly and recommended a great seafood restaurant! Loved floating on the boats. The bed was a little too hard for our tastes. The shower was on the small side, but then it was retrofitted into an old boat. So I guess we should be happy with the private bathroom. Could've used more...
