Cute hotel. No bells or whistles; just a clean, safe place to sleep after a day at the beach. The boardwalk is about a 12 minute walk away.

When arriving, there was a lady in the back cutting up broccoli and washing her bras. I had to wait for 10 mins for someone to come to the front desk, it was dark “no lights on” When we got to our room the bathtub was dirty and the room smelled like cigarettes. It’s literally a place to sleep. Me and my kids stayed gone all day and went back as late as we could just to sleep and leave the next morning.

It was in good location, except to close to the road and very noisy. the bathtub and shower curtain were full of hair, so it was not clean at all! Otherwise, good location, everything is so close by, 8-12 minutes.

Good only thing was our serving night we were next to a family of 7!!!! Crying kids all night slamming doors at 6an/8am

Property manager was nice people say Indian people are rude but not these guys they are very appreciative to be rich of American tourist kudos to them!

This hotel was close to the main attractions I’m planing to go back next month

The room was clean but the road noise was pretty loud.

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE Management is made up of a bunch of lying and filthy crooks.

It was a ok hotel. The parking lot was small. I have a 3/4 ton truck. It barely fit in their lot.

The staff was very nice. Holiday weekend so way, way too expensive. It was acceptable, would I stay again, probably not.

Covered parking was a bit tight but well lit and maintained. Our fridge didn't work but didn't need it spoke with staff they said would look at it. Room clean some cosmetic damages throughout but VERY affordable. Bed comfy. Over all very quiet. Staff friendly and helpful.
