Pros: private beach, close to beach, pool, rooms with two beds and bunkbeds for large families or groups, good location, cheap, small fridge and microwave Cons: small bathroom, beds are VERY uncomfortable and hard, pillows are flat, itchy blankets (no comforter, blanket shown in pictures, like a towel), no tv channels, cheap irons that don't work well, old fridges and...

Look, this hotel is a little dated, but it's relatively clean, it has 2 nice pools, we could bring our dogs for a total of $45, and it was the host hotel for Ironman Florida. Shut up and take my money! Our room was on the 2nd floor of the Tides building and T1 was right outside our door. We...

The nice thing is, the hotel is not too expensive, located directly at the beach with a beach bar that offer good food and drinks. However, if you are looking for a nicely looking new hotel, this place is not the right one for you. Also, when I called the reception to confirm the booking two days before our stay...

The only valid reason to stay here again would be for the easy access to the Ironman event. The hotel is old, but that is no excuse for not being clean. The linens were overworn, rough, and dingy. The white washcloths were anything but white. The beds were hard as a rock. The floors dirty. No hangers for your clothes....

This hotel is sooo conveniently located for the Florida Ironman race on a beautiful soft white sand beach BUT IT IS DISGUSTING! The room was awful (we also stayed here in 2013 for the same race and it was bad then too). This time the bathroom was totally awful - see the picture. Like no one had cleaned since before...

This was one of the worst hotels I have seen in my life, was there for an Ironman event, and it was dirty, filled with cockroaches, smelled and totally unclean. They tried keeping me for 4 nights and after the first night just walked out.

The BOARDWALK BEACH RESORT HOTEL AND CONVENTION CENTER is an old well worn out hotel with terrible beds and very small toilets. If the finer things are not your thing and you want to be right on the beach, and if you want very a reasonable rate, this is your place. I was there for a military reunion and I...

Was grateful to find such a place on a last minute booking due to our original trip to Tybee Island GA being cancelled due to Hurricane Matthew evacuation. Room was nice, view was spectacular. Loved having a private beach so you didn't have to worry about your belongings while in the ocean. Only a few minor disappointments: building was run...

This place is a total dump for the ridiculous price they want to charge you. The room are old and nasty. The beds are uncomfortable. Needless to say I won't be back to this dump. From the time we got there the staff was rude and when I got to my room I almost went and asked for my money...

This is very sad! We arrived on Thursday and told we couldn't get into out rooms (our room numbers had been pre assigned) so we went up and looked in rooms and they were "ready" but not inspected. I did call in a couple of favors and we finally got into our room 1 1/2 hours later. I found it...
