Good Morning, I am very sorry for the experience you have while staying with us. I am aware of this, and we addressed it with the staff so this will not occur again. We are working hard to make these changes. We do hope you come and stay with us again.

The hotel did have a musty smell. Definitely needs some updating. Bed was comfortable. Staff was friendly.

Disgusting rooms. Had to be moved to another room due to the toilet being broken. Next room had a broken toilet seat. Broken lamp. Absolutely the crappiest hotel I’ve ever stayed in. Rather spend 700 more on a nice place

We loved the location! And, you know what? Lots of people have posted really negative reviews about the hotel, but, let's face it - it's an old hotel! So we thought it was just fine. We loved the staff and the breakfast. Sure, there are some repairs and updates, but why not focus on all of the terrific aspects of the place and stop complaining if things aren't perfect? Great parking, great bar area, pretty good exercise facilities, good housekeeping, decently comfortable bed. We'll go back.

It’s location is the only positive thing about this hotel because it’s very near to the beach. However it’s a very old hotel that needs massive renovation. It looks so old inside and smells so old. Even the beds are old and uncomfortable. I am surprised how they are still in business. I will never go back nor recommend it. It’s not worth what I paid for.

Beds felt like they were 30 years old. Hotel was a little dingy and could use a little updating, but other than that it was ok.

Hotel Close to Everything

The hotel is dated and definitely needs updating. Our room was clean but the carpet was old and needed to be deep cleaned. Bathroom could be cleaner. If the hotel was not walking distance to downtown St. Joseph, beach and any of the other attractions, I would not recommend to stay here.

Needs to be updated!!!!!!!

When we arrived we where welcomed with the smell of a India restaurant throw out the hotel almost made me turn around and walkout . The lobby was clean and somewhat updated. We checked in and went to our room (king with a tub). I walked in and looked around tables had scratches on them and the overall room felt very dated. Went back down stairs to see if I could upgrade to a different room and they said it would cost me another $35 on top of the $98 I just paid for the suit so I did it. When we went to that room same thing everything was very worn down and in need of updateing. The pictures on their web site looked to be doctored up to make it look nicer that it did. The pool area was under construction but sill open not like the pictures. The free breakfast Was "okay at best"
