Very short board walk to the beach. Gorgeous pool and bar area. Restaurant very roomy. Our rooms were better than we thought we had. We enjoy this hotel very much and will be back again.

Don't ever stay here, the rooms are okay at best, service is horrible, amenities are sub-par and the staff will argue with you about what they are required to provide to you. I will never stay here again

Worst place to stay! I have literally been in a nicer, cleaner Motel 6. BUYER BEWARE!! They couldn’t get us into our room upon arrival because the door was broken. You could visibly see the entire metal component had been broken into. The hotel lobbyist even tried to open it with the master key, which failed. Was offered a second room after attempting to get into the first one open for an hour. Second room was infested with mold. So bad I coughed upon entering. Air conditioner was unusable and broken. Went to sit at the table to think about whether I could sleep there, found the table to have sticky ringlets and food chunks on the chairs. Unable to breathe, hot as hell and disgusted I couldn’t even bear to look at the bed so I had to leave and book another hotel for the weekend. The lobbyist apologized and attempted to contact management. Management of course didn’t answer. I told him that I wanted a refund and he stated I could talk to the management in the morning to get a refund. Showed up the next morning and spoke to management. They said they would give me a full refund. I thanked the, for their understanding and reiterated how bad the rooms were, heck, we didn’t even get in the first one! I asked for a receipt confirming the refund. They stated they couldn’t because we booked through travelocity and the refund wouldn’t be the full amount because of the “commission.” I asked how could I trust that I would receive the money back? They quoted me the amount stated they

Worst hotel ever

Pros: the pool
Cons: everything!
Tiny room hardly big enough for the bed. Bathroom had barely any room to even close the door. Light so dim in the bathroom you could barely see. No microwave in the room or anywhere on the property to use. Refrigerator was half the size of a normal hotel refrigerator. Restaurant was supposed to be open until 11pm per sign in the elevator, but they closed at 8pm of a Friday night. Breakfast consisted of the smallest bowl I have ever seen for cereal and each guest was allowed 1 bowl of cereal and 1 piece of fruit. Pull out bed in the room was ripped in several places and even the kids couldn't sleep on it. For the price, I was expecting more. I received better service and amenities at the Motel 6 for less than half the cost of this room. Wont make this mistake again.

Updated rooms, great beach location and very clean

Great experience, friendly staff. The rooms was very modern and clean. The view was beautiful and the balcony was large. The pool had a basketball hoop, awesome- for my kiddos. Thanks! Will definitely stay again.

Unpleasantly surprised.

We viewed the website first. Pictures and amenities looked promising, but once there, the experience was horrible. View sucked, elevator was slow and stinky due to the wet mat they keep in there, odor outside smelled like sewer, most staff was unfriendly and unhelpful. Even though pool was empty, they ran out of towels. We will not be staying g there again and will not recommend.

A Bright and Shiny Piece

Pros: Beach proximity and access
Cons: Everything
I ignored the poor reviews because there were so many outstanding ones but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE listen to them/us and do not stay here. Our room was obviously new but lacking in so many ways. First, our door was not working properly and we had to wait for maintenance to come reset it, which took about 45 mins -- we were hungry but couldn't leave because we would have no way to get back in our room. One of the beds did not have a comforter on it, that took about another 30 mins. No washcloths. It was the most ill conceived shower design I have ever seen, it forces you to get wet when trying to turn the shower on, which by the way, the handle is blocked by the shower door so be ready to contort your arm. For a business that makes their bread and butter from being so close to the beach, one might consider NOT having everything laid out with canyon sized grout lines. Having not touched the thermostat, the same setting that freezes you out during the day will burn you up at night. I will say, the staff was very pleasant and the beach proximity and access is amazing. The pool was nice but the hot tub didn't work, at that point I was beyond being surprised with everything that was not right about this place. It was NOT WORTH the money I paid. DO NOT STAY HERE. Spend a little more and stay somewhere else.
