10/10 Exceptional

Good value for the money
Helpful staff. Went above and beyond to ensure i had what I needed. You could tell, but the management wanted to improve the hotel with as many Features of a possible. It is an older hotel, but he offered put into insurance everything what's up what's up. It was relatively quiet and very close to the beach.

2/10 Poor

Decieved by pictures...worst stay ever
No I'm sorry it was was too noisy, the bed was not comfortable. I was nervous and did not sleep because of all the noise, people, ice machine, dogs. The pictures on the website are deceiving because there are no rooms that walk right out to the beach. The room was hot and stuffy with no air conditioning. And the manager guy called me very late twice for reasons I do no know which was unnerving and was told on my voice-mail that he left a key under the mat which we checked in morning and no key but thought how unsafe is that so I have no idea what he was talking about and how unsafe that would have been to leave a room key under a mat. Such a terrible stay we were not going to stay the scond night that we had booked.

Will not be staying here again
Towels were dirty. Pillows were dirty and had yellow goo on them! Bathtub jets didn't work - I asked the front desk and they said none of them do - this needs to be online! The bed was so old it conceived into the middle and was very uncomfortable. No air so the room was very warm. Only good thing was it was just a short walk to the beach.

2/10 Poor

It was an absolute scam! So embarrassed in front of my family. The room was not even close to the pictures on the website.smelly and nasty. The representative was not helpful at all and did not even try to connect us to his manager to get the issue resolved. I stuck with my family in that room since we did not have any other option and could not go back home late. Definitely my last experience with, also for my friends and family., So disappointing.

Spiders and ants
There’s small spiders all over the bed and the dresser. Some hit me. Luckily only stayed for one night. They don’t have ac unit, just a fan. At least it wasn’t crazy hot that day. Ants started to easily come in overnight that was eating my dogs food.

2/10 Poor

Other than the beach being very close, unfortunately there are no perks to staying at this hotel. The amenities are very old and unkempt, there is no central air (it was incredibly humid and hot in our room all night long) and we had roaches that came out at night.

2/10 Poor

This motel is an unsafe place to stay. It is home to transients and homeless people who ride their bikes in and out of the rooms! Several members of our group were kept awake all night with strangers repeatedly knocking on their door trying to make a drug deal. There was also what appeared to be a biker gang using one of the rooms and hanging out on the property. If you value your life, do not stay at this motel!
