Service counter (clerk) un-informative. Wanted a oceanview room, and was told... More

Our room smelled so horrible, we should have left door open all night so we do not die of Legionnaires Disease. The mold/mildew was horrible. The vent over the toilet in bathroom was absolutely full of gunk. I showed a pic to girl at the front desk.

I booked a room as a guest at a niece's wedding. I was a bit surprised at the rate - but it' turns out that the first Saturday of October is the new June bride day. I'm not sure how many rooms were taken I was told all and all but one, but, returning from wedding and reception I had... More

I read over negative reviews and I must say I don't get it his hotel has newly renovated rooms with side views of the ocean - I paid $107 plus tax ($121) with my triple AAA discount on Friday Sep 30, 2016.

As soon as we opened the door it reeked of mold and mildew. We notified staff right away and a gentlemen came right up and sprayed something into the air conditioning unit's filter. It helped for the moment but as soon as we returned to the room later that evening, the smell was just as horrible as when we arrived.... More

We arrived at this hotel after dark and needed a room for the night. The lady checking us in was very nice.We got a nice room but not oceanfront. Everything was comfortable and quiet. The laminate (?) floor "sweated." This might be because of the proximity to the ocean. The breakfast was good, and we were pleased to see cheese... More

Dead roaches on floor. Phone did not work. Old wash cloth hung up on back of bathroom door. Got a spider bite when sleeping. Killed 2 spiders when I woke up. Not all TV channels worked. $136 before taxes. Will never stay here again.

It definitely is not the kind of hotel you'd want to be stuck at in the rain, but it was clean and comfortable. Also had a decent rate and a great view behind it. Our room in particular did have some paintings missing but it is the end of the season I'm sure they will have it fixed up by... More
