Sheets felt like sandpaper, drains are missing covers & dirty. Breakfast was included on the reservation but they do not offer it because “COVID.” Good for them saving money with false advertising. Way too expansive for a crappy place.

Location is great. Convenient to the beach, the pier and restaurants. Beds were firm but matresses sagged in the middle and springs were noisy. They should have been replaced some time ago. Light over the sink was too dim and not much use unless i was directly under it which put me too close to the mirror. Employees were all friendly and helpful. Overall we enjoyed our visit in spite of the few negatives and would go back again.

The only problem I encountered was they had accidentally put me in a smoking room, when I reserved a non smoking room. But the staff quickly changed rooms without hesitation. It had nice tile floors, the fridge and microwave worked great Looked like it had been recently painted. They had a nice breakfast pastries, cereals, fruit, juice coffee and milk. Its literally just 2-3 minutes from the beach walking....I have stayed at most of the hotels on the beach and this by far has been the best one.

Older hotel but it has been updated. For the price and location, it’s worth the money, just don’t expect a 4 star hotel, it’s a true 1970’s motel with some updates.

Dingy bedding, bathroom door knob was falling off, the front door looked like werewolves had tried to scratch through the door to get to the previous occupants. Wifi had such a weak signal that no browser activity was possible.
