2/10 Poor

Horrible stay, dirty sheets when we arrived we had to do our own housekeeping, but that’s not the worst part of everything at 1 am we wake up to our hotel room flooded from a bursted pipe in the bathroom ugh! Then we get transferred to another room which had roaches! Just a horrible experience and the owners only offered one night comp. Like really our whole stay should of been compensated. Which at check out they couldn’t even provide a receipt of all charges! So please don’t stay there, it’s more like a one star hotel. Pictures are deceiving.

Great stay
Great stay. Only draw backs was that there was some small roaches in the restroom but i think its very common in all hotels at the island. Also wish they had some kind of breakfast or danishes at least. Rooms are great price. I asked for a room on the bottom and they accommedated me with one. Fast check in. Very friendly staff. Warm pool. Was worth it. Will stay again soon. Great airconditiong. Cold. Take extra blanket.

4/10 Fair

Pictures are Deceptive
This hotel has a great location is fairly inexpensive and those are the pros for it. The parking is terrible because of how small the spots are. The bed was uncomfortable. The curtains and shower curtain were filthy. There were people arguing past 2:00 am in the morning on one of our evenings. People fish well into the evening right outside you patio. We saw a roach in the bathroom. One of the office attendants was terrible. He was very unfriendly and acted like I was an inconvenience when I checked in. In fact the door didnt work and you had to just push on the door when you use the key because it flashes like it isn’t unlocking. The same guy was there when I complained about this big guy who was confrontational to my wife because he thought she hit his car door. She didn’t but he had been out on the patio smoking pot and thought he saw her hit it so I told the office guy and he could have cared less. We will not stay there again. If you do stay here make sure you are on canal side and not on the first floor. Buyer beware!
