Great Location!!
This hotel is located two blocks from the Rio Del Mar Beach. Breakfast is good and served in a spacious room. The staff is friendly and helpful, heard them giving out many dining and sight seeing pointers. The room was a bit small, but there was a large closet. Obviously an older hotel that has been updated. Awesome pool and hot tub that.

great location, horrible accommodations!
this hotel needs to be condemned, tore down, and rebuilt from the ground up! it was so noisy because the walls and floors are so thin that I couldn't get a good night's sleep the whole weekend. the worst part was that when we came back from dinner on our second night there the sewer had apparently backed up and the maintenance man (not a professional plumber) was outside our door literally all night working on it. so we didn't have a working toilet or shower because the sewer had backed up in our bathroom too. so we raw had sewage in our shower for about 12 hours until they could come clean it due to no housekeeping on duty, which is a total health hazard. then when they finally got it cleaned up they left the carpets outside of the rooms wet and contaminated for the next 2 days and we had to track it into our room! disgusting!! then to add insult to injury the SAME THING happened the next night and we had to get a late check out because we couldn't use our bathroom AGAIN!! and with all of this happening the staff was completely unapologetic about it. the entire staff there was totally unprofessional and unfriendly with the exception of one housekeeper. I am calling the manager to hope to get a refund for being inconvenienced. the ONLY good thing about this hotel is the location
