We received great service! The room they gave us had a broken door, and when we went downstairs to tell them we couldn't open it, they promptly gave us a new UPGRADED room, 2 hours late check out time, and $30 to spend at their little store in the lobby. All given to us without us even asking for compensation. Our room was clean with good a/c and quiet at night. Common areas looked clean and modern and the courtyard was very pretty. 15 minutes from the beach, the room showed its age in places but ultimately I don't think one can do better than this property for its price range.

Paper thin walls and concrete matresses - Oh My!

Upon arrival I was really pleased - I mean, it LOOKED nice. Tall ceilings and full wall windows which I found out later we’re all the better to reverberate noise with. I was in town for a wedding and retired around nine Friday night. I laid in bed and listen to what sounded like two little people running foot race is upstairs in playing on the trampoline For about two hours before finally calling the front desk and begging them to ask them to knock it off. It took two more calls before something is finally done around midnight within 30 minutes the gentleman, at least I think it was a man, judging by the roaring bear noises coming through the toilet paper thin walls, as he lay no more than 4 feet from me next-door and began snoring like a freight train. I turned the TV on, I turn the TV up, I turn the air on, I even tried air plugs. To no avail, it was as if this person was in bed next to me snarling like an angry wolverine. At 3:15 AM I finally called the front desk and even though the clerk could clearly hear this person snoring his head off the phone, I was told that since this was clearly a health issue, there was nothing they could do except move me to a new room. Yes that’s exactly what I wanted to do, I certainly wanted to have to load everything up at 3:30 in the morning get dressed and move to another room, one that night most likely also had paper thin walls. I moved the next day but enjoyed second night on another concrete hard bed. Avoid! Avoid! Avoid!
