Dirty, smelled of pine sol, stains on furniture and really outdated. I checked in and checked out within 20 minutes. I was told when I made my reservation that I could have a room on the second floor. When I arrived they had moved me to the top floor. Three days later, I am still waiting for my refund.

Check-in was a breeze...however, we were charged a $31 "resort" fee. This is NOT a resort. There are three buildings with outside entrances. The building in the middle doesn't have an elevator (Helloooo!! I had a bag with just shoes) We were upgraded to an ocean front king with a large balcony which was nice. Room was cool. Outside noise...

This hotel was terrible to say the least. Our room hadn't been vaccumed, no hangers in closet, no toilet paper, tp holder was broken, the jam on door to balcony was completely busted (so anyone could come in) knobs on AC didn't work & when tried to fix that the whole front cover fell off. Pillows were pancakes. And ladies...

Overall a good stay! Room was clean and hotel was within walking distance to most everything. The only bad thing I can really say is that there is not enough parking. And we had to ask for towels because I never seen the maid, but I didn't mind that either. Other than that I will be back! Tip: We stayed...

I really contemplated on answering this survey because I am sure it will be read and just deleted or tucked away with the rest. Then I thought, well maybe, just maybe someone who truly cares about their hotel and clientele will possibly read. We had not taken a family vacation in years. We were looking so forward to the beach....

I have stayed at this hotel for numerous years. It is one of the smaller hotels left on the strip and it is in a good location, You can walk to the pavilion area and there is a Mexican restaurant right next door. Now it does not have all the bells and whistles of the larger hotels but it gets...

This place is awful. The room was horrible it was small but beds were clean. Trash was left under beds from previous guests. The shower was awful awful!! You have to be under 4 feet tall to fit in there. The water was insane. It would start off cold, so we tried adjusting it, finally it got warm and then...

We booked a "2 bedroom suite" - which was just two crappy adjoining rooms. In the middle of the night our kids woke us up to say the bathroom ceiling was leaking. The lady at the desk said there was nothing she could do. Within an hour water was running down all the walls and out the electric sockets. When...
