I knew this was an older hotel but for one night I decided to take a shot to be by the beach. Big mistake. The hotel is in disrepair. You can see ample daylight when the door is secure, floors are dirty, elevator nasty, railings are peeling paint and worst of all two of the electrical outlets in our room did not even have covers. Exposed wires just waiting to electrocute a child. Oh and I didn't even want to drink the coffee at the complementary breakfast let alone eat any of the dry cereal. Avoid at all cost.

It looks nothing like in the picture but the AC works great and it’s perfectly located across from the beach

The tile floor was nasty. Walked from the bed to the bathroom and back and the bottom of my feet were black. For the price we paid, it leaves a lot to be desired. This one is going on the do not stay list.

I liked the location of hotel, it had an old charm to it. I didn't like that the TV was not programmed and the message was to contact the office. The phone in the room didn't work. I had to walk 3 flights of stairs because the elevator was not working. Then there was no one available to help.

The staff was overly helpful, even hiring a Lyft driver and paying for it herself! She stayed with us and continued to call about our taxi, which never arrived.

It has great potential but not done. Ceiling peeling, and balcony door fell off, floor was constantly wet, don't know why and cable not working in some rooms. Lite garbage outside. On the plus side , our cable was great, hot water great , beds clean and continental breakfast good and no early cut off. Of course the view is great

Hateful clerk. There is no good reason to be rude. I will never stay here! I do NOT recommend this worn down hotel for anyone!

The property was super close to the beach and I loved that. The attendant did accommodate me with a room with a beautiful view. But the next day I had to change rooms due to leaking from the ceiling. A huge puddle almost made me fall. Also at night there were lots of water bugs by the pool area.
