Horrible! Talk about a nightmare, the room stunk, holes on the walls, broken door knobs, dirty bathroom. Broken mirrors in the elevator, security camera hanging off the wall, parking is at bare minimum, rude employees, trash every where and it don't stop there...don't waste ur time and money!

We were unable to enjoy our ocean front room and balcony due to room below up smoking marijuana, brought it to owner attention he did nothing. Lied to use said the couple and there small child checked out. Was completely untrue . If your on vacation and have a government job this is last thing you wanna smell for your stay. It obviously okay with the owner to accept this type of behavior he did nothing did even allow me to change room. On top of that these people had a very small child in room with them. If you smoke weed go here, if you want vacation in a better setting this is not the place!!
