When I booked the hotel, I requested the floor with the least stairs as I was supposed to be recovering from a major surgery and would be unable to climb stairs and get my luggage in. Luckily, my surgery was delayed. They put me on the floor with the most possible stairs there. Had I had my surgery, there would...

Went on Friday, Dec 16 and was put in room 312, so as we get our bags in and everything and relax awhile, we saw a roach in the kitchen part in the back. So we killed that one. So as we laid down, we saw 2 more on the wall above the bed. So we called the front desk...

Was a clean and tidy for what we paid, although the beds are only a double and very difficult to share between two people (of normal size). Was a very uncomfortable sleep, and the blinds did not shut out any of the light in the morning. Breakfast was held next door and was not appealing at all ... oats, cereal,...

Stayed November 24 thru 26, 2016. Is it older and in need of renovation? Yes. Other then that, it was a clean, functional room right on the beach. Balcony view is awesome. Didn't use the pool but lots of other people seemed to enjoy it. Same with the hot tub. Would we stay here again? Probably, but we would look...

Over all a good stay. This might not sound like a good visit but it was. The shower was terrible, you had to squat to take a shower. I am only 5 foot 8 inches and had to lean down to wash my head and face. The room was a king, kitchenette and it was a small room. The room...

This hotel is an older one without an elevator so we were lucky enough to be on the 2nd floor. It's really in a great location. Much to do within walking distance. Our rooms were clean, and we could get internet where some others had problems. The staff at the front desk while we were there, were quiet, not quick...

Not worth the money spent, No elevator, nasty stained carpet, was promised a nice room, and still ended up with dated, old, raggedy, furniture. Not safe, the rooms situated near the stairwells, could be easily accessed by anyone (could have climbed over the rail, so we couldn't even sleep with the balcony door open to listen to the ocean, It...

Booked a one night spur of the moment stay. Very tired older hotel. Typical of many cheap beach motels. Though the room was clean enough it still had issues. It is right on the beach which is great, but there is no way I could "vacation " here for a week or more. One night was my max. I used...

Spent 2 nights here during our road trip of The Panhandle, because we only stay at places for a maximum of 2 nights we tend to choose low budget motels, this one falls far short of others we have stayed at during this trip. The good - we arrived prior to the official 4 o'clock check in and were allowed...

We found this place over a year ago. Rooms are always clean. Parking lot was busy so my reviews are being read. Not a bad place on the beach for the money. Light breakfast included. We will be back again soon.
