I would like to say that after I had read not so good reviews so I was a little nervous. I was'nt sure if we would like the place. But we went ahead with the reservation. I want to say to people not to worry.We were very surprised and happy with our room. It was very clean, the bed was comfortable.We had four adults and the room had two separate bedrooms! It also had a kitchenette and small couch and 3 TV"s ! So don't worry guys this place is really nice. Their complementary breakfast is a plus. We will go again another plus is the beach is not far either.

It advertised as having a full kitchen and the full sized refrigerator was great. However I was expecting some silverware, glasses or dishes. They did have plastic silverware and paper plates at the breakfast area. I didn't eat breakfast but it did look very good!

Very cost effective for anyone NOT spending significant time in one's room. A no frills place. Easy access off major interstate, near to shopping ( food, gas). Relatively quiet.

Awful. Need my money back from Travelocity for the last day that we weren’t there because we had to find a new hotel. We had four of us to one bed because the first two nights we didn’t get the sofa bed that was supposed to come with the room. The second check in, a sofa bed that was broken and no one to come fix it or bring a cot after calling down to ask and coming back late realizing they hadn’t done anything we asked... TV remotes didn’t work so we couldn’t even watch TVs. The kids went nuts. The pool was very dirty and we got stung because of all the bees in it. The first two nights prepaid we couldn’t even be there because our flight had also been cancelled on us re-routing to Monday night. I officially request three nights of this booking to be refunded pronto or I will do a charge back on my credit card to Travelocity because the hotel said I would have to go through the third party booking for the refund. (760)672-7975 naomigoodale@gmail.com- please contact me immediately or just issue a refund to the card used.
