I knew something was wrong when locals were staring at me as I approached the property in my rental car. It appeared to be used as a welfare motel off season. Bug droppings on bathroom counter in 1st room which I reported to front desk only to find 2nd room just as disgusting. My eyes were burning from incectides. I retuned key and booked last minute at Ocean Reef Hotel where I felt safe in a clean room.

Im not sure why anyone would stare at you because you have a renal car. There are a lot of guests that visit and drive rentals and they had no problems so we are unsure of the difference between you and the other guests. We just recently stated renting to local guests and we do not have many that is staying here. However we do apologize you were unhappy. This is property is older than the ocean reef but our room are clean and we have guests that love it here. We are glad you enjoy Ocean Reef.

The location of the hotel and the staff were great. It took less than 5 min to get checked in. The only things I didn't like were having to park across the street, not getting the ocean front hotel room as I booked, and the nastyness of the actual hotel room floor. The floor was extreamly nasty and you could'nt walk around bare footed due to the floor leaving your feet black almost instantly. I was very dissapointed with that but the rest of the room was pretty clean.

Dump

Pros: It was located on the beach.
Cons: Everything
This place is a dump. First, I prepaid for the room on Travelocity but I still had to pay the resort fee. I was going to pay the resort fee with my credit card but I was informed that I would also be charged a deposit which I would get back upon check out. However, if I paid with cash, no deposit was needed. We got the keys and went to find our room. Upon arrival, the door was open and room smelled of cigarette smoke from the wonderful people standing outside smoking. The door did not latch very well, so we had to put a chair against the door when we went to bed. The chairs in the room were stained and needed to be cleaned but the sheets appeared to be clean and no signs of bed bugs. The people staying at this hotel were shady at best. It probably has not been renovated since the Vikings. At this point I am not even sure a renovation would help...throw some dynamite on it and start from scratch!

Smoking is allowed in all rooms. Everything was old and worn, but appeared to be well maintained. It was very inexpensive, so I feel like I got a decent bargain. It will not be my first choice, but I would stay there again.
