You get what you pay for! Yes this place is cheap, we weren't there for more than 5 minutes and a roach ran up my wife's leg! Needless to say we ended up moving to the Hilton, management told us all the hotels on the island have a roach problem. If you don't mind roaches running all over the place...

Enjoyed the sunset from our room and the proximity to the beach & Clayton's. The parking area was well lite and the rooms were large enough to visit with friends. Breakfast was a bonus. Will definitely be back!

The staff was nice. The room had a nice flat screen tv, cool sink, cool showerhead, and nice granite countertop for the dresser and tv. Hot tub wasn't hot. Also, it needs a thick blanket in the rooms.
