If you just need a place to shower n sleep it's ok for being so close to the bay.. the owners are rude the parking lot is cramped and it's full of out of town const workers. We paid a $100 for a downstairs single king but I seriously doubt we'll stay here again.

Came to this hotel because it was the cheapest with okay ratings for spring break 2014. When we arrived we had to come from the back because in the front the roads were under construction and closed off. But as soon as we went into the property our first reactions was "Oh my gosh! its ghetto". Small parking lot/very tight...

The rooms are old, Beds are not clean, we asked for a non smoking room and it smelled like smoke all over, there was a cigarette butt on the floor in back of the door. The parking area is small. The pool Is small and looked dirty. Never again. Like I said you get what you pay for.

Location was great, could walk across ocean drive, and shoreline blvd to beach, from motel to water was about 150 yards. One day we parked at a parking lot near the beach, ( the spaces on the...

Pros... A/c worked very well. Spacious room with microwave and mini fridge. Looks clean. Staff friendly. Cons... We called the night before we would be arriving and made the reservation. We got the confirmation number once our credit card was charged, and told the girl we would be in after 10.00pm the next night. We were assured everything was fine....

I stay at this hotel when my father is in the hospital. Location is great. Beds & pillows are horrible like concrete. Always smells & if you are down stairs it's noisy from the floor above.

“Hotel faces sideways to beach. Only room 201 has a view of beach from inside the room. We payed a little more for this room, and we requested it while making reservation. Room 201 has a counter with 2 bar stools at it, just for looking out the window at the view. THERE ISN'T A FITNESS CENTER, OR RESTAURANT, SO THEY ARE NOT TERRIBLE- JUST MISSING.”
