The room was nasty & the bathroom smelled like vomit. Gnats were flying all in the room. People standing outside their door on the balcony smelling like weed. The elevator was terrible it shook so bad we started using the stairs. It was like staying at a bad motel 6 but across the street from the beach for $300 a night!! I did not feel safe & I would never bring my grandkids here. Never stay here, spend a little more money & stay in a name brand hotel.

First and foremost this isn’t a Hotel, it’s a Motel, there weren’t towels in the room, the A/C was broken. Couldn’t sleep under the sheets in the bed at night due to the heat, would wake up completely wet from sweating so bad. The location is good, within walking distance of everything, but that was the only good thing. Definitely not worth the price and wouldn’t recommend staying there again as the photos online are very misleading.

Great location. We had roaches in the room. I asked the staff if we could have it sprayed twice and it never happened. The 24 hour coffee was not there and no coffee pot in the room. There was a fight in the room next door, no one would answer the front desk phone. Horrible vacation!

The staff was so nice. The breakfast lobby area was a quaint beachy decor. It was right across the street from the popular Casino Bay with restaurants and pier. The room was okay, but it was clean and okay since I was just there to sleep at night. The kindness of the staff made my stay good.
