Place is in a great location and affordable. Walking distance to many restaurants. That being said, the place is really really tired. No towel bars in our room to hang wet towels. No hook on the back of the door. Mini fridge was great but shelves were rusty and us inviting. Overflow drain in the bathroom sink was a rust pit. Beds can’t possibly be queen size, more like a full size. The elevator has a soft spot in the floor that freaked me out a bit. But believe it or not, I would stay there again. I was never in my room to really pay much attention, the people were very nice and the location is right on the beach. For the money it’s doable.

Needs to be renovated. Carpets are gross, elevator floor is warped, price is good, sheets are clean, but would not recommend.

I was very nervous after reading reviews, but I cant complain. Awesome beach view, balcony was the highlight! Great location to cool bars, resturants, ice cream polar, CVS all walking distance. very comfortable bed, flatscreen tv, no bugs in my room..... all good. Yes its an old building but for the price you cant go wrong. Your on the beach!

Good location. The whole place was filthy and run down, from the lobby to the rooms to the pool to the elevator and stairways.

Very good experience! The gentleman that checked us in was pleasant and helpful when I needed assistance to open the door. Its an older place and could use some updating, but had everything we needed, including dishes and pots and pans (we didn't use the stove) and was very clean. We were on the 4th floor gulfside, and had an amazing view. The bed we had could have been more comfortable, but seriously that is my only complaint. The water was hot and our bathroom was immaculate, not a speck of anything anywhere. I was a tad worried after reading through reviews, but went ahead with my reservation, and I am so glad I did! So close to the water, very clean, great location. Lots of places within walking distance, restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream and rentals for bikes and scooters etc. I am already planning my next weekend here and hoping I can stay longer.

Disappointing

Pros: The location on the beach.
Cons: All areas need improvement; upkeep, cleanliness, friendliness of staff.
Location: Easy access to restaurants in the area.
The only thing this hotel has going for it is it's location on the beach. The facility is run down and appears little is being put back into the facility for maintenance. The ice machine was broken and the pool area filter screamed loudly so that you would not want to sit poolside. The rooms were not very clean either. When we checked in the older gentleman who we assumed was the proprietor was very rude and unaccommodating. We were told earlier by the younger gentleman at the check in desk that we could check in early (at 1pm versus the 2pm check in time). When we arrived at 1:15pm to check into our room, the older gentleman was there and he was eating a sandwich and told us to come back after 1:30 since he was eating and (this is a direct quote) "it won't kill us to wait another 15 to 20 minutes". Hhhmmm. Is he in the hospitality industry? We would never go back to this hotel or recommend it to anyone.
