rooms were specious and clean. Staff were friendly and professional. Amenities were comparable with value. The only recommendation is to upgrade the continental breakfast with a few more choices. Location was great for the venue we were attending.

We chose this hotel because of the proximity to our daughter's home and we just needed a place to sleep. First hotel I've stayed in that did not have a coffee maker or a hairdryer in the room. Coffee was available in the breakfast area until 10 am. Breakfast was meager. Beds and towels were clean but carpets and especially... More

Cheap and cheerful is a reasonable description. Beds are comfortable, bathroom clean, and plenty of hot water in the shower. For the money how much does one expect? If you want hot breakfast and airconditioned hallways, stay somewhere else and pay a LOT more. We have not had a bad experience in this very conveniently located hotel. Breakfast is self... More

Not a bad motel only a block from the beach. They also take pets for only $10 extra. The rooms have been recently upgrades and were very clean. Plumbing need redoing and only basic analog TV, but room rates were$100 less a night than any other nearby hotel. Free continental breakfast is included and there is some covered parking.

We went into this stay with no idea what we were getting into. We have never travelled this far from home and this was the cheapest hotel close to beach. The breakfast is not good, but the rest is great! The pool is perfect for any hotel.

Price is great. Location is great. Issues: "Breakfast" was coffee and muffins only. Faucets in bathroom and tub did not work. Had to use a plunger a couple of times during the week on all plumbing.

My family and I were in a hurry so we booked this hotel last minute. This was the biggest mistake I have ever made. First, it is located in a very sketchy area where homeless people and "interesting" people were walking around when we arrived at nearly midnight. Parking was in the back which was an even more scary area... More

Stayed for 2 nights with my parents, not too bad for the price but could be cheaper. They got pool, really close to the beach (about 3 blocks distance away). Also it is close to the aquarium, which I think family with little children will love it and people who loves marine life will love it.

What a sad little place. We waited 10 minutes for a clerk to show up to check us in - the foyer looks like a tired brothel waiting room. The door opened up into a seamy room with torn curtains and beat up accoutrements- and then they had the nerve to offer up their branded water at $1.50 a bottle... More
