I love the customer service, very friendly and helpful.

We stay here several years ago and we did like the location and staff friendliness however the hotel has been neglected when it comes to maintenance dirty pool , no a/c , old carpet, no double pane windows which makes it very noisy and the worst was the cockroaches $500 for a room full of roaches and no breakfast is really not appealing anymore I do have to say staff is still the only thing I like from the place helpful and friendly.

Wonderful place. Love the hot tub.

Nice area and good price

Right on the beach. great rate and hot, hot tub!

Rooms were very small and the property is very loud with seagulls and the walls are paper thin.

Nice room Beautiful surroundings right on the beach Minutes from downtown. You could walk the beach or you could drive

It was so close to the beach

They were able to upgrade me to an oceanfront view at the last minute

The end is on the ocean. It does not look like the pictures

Nothing it was old no air conditioning rooom was not what I expected it felt like a motel 6 I will never go there again

Room temp was all over the place. Couldn't get extra blankets and front staff unhelpful in resolving anything. Bed was undersized. Couldn't open windows with a beach view more than 2 inches max. Overall not worth the money

.

Very clean and nice staff. I would recommend to other family and friends

Staff was super nice,Mitch was especially helpful,the cleaning staff were nice and respectful,the view was ,fantastic!

Staff was friendly Rooms were nice and clean I would recommend
