The good: The pool area is really nice. Clean, large, plenty of chairs. The thatched roof tables and chairs really gave the area the "Florida" feel. Even though the hotel is outdated, the halls and public areas were very clean. The beds were comfy. The AC was a little loud, but didn't bother me. The bad: The only time a... More

Although this is a small hotel in comparison to it neighbors it still was a very quaint lodging. It is a little further away from the Gulf than I had hoped for, however it has a pleasant atmosphere. Sadly there was no free breakfast and our two night stay was uneventful except the chair in the room needs to be... More

I was charged for 3 rooms in our party even though individuals checked in with their own credit cards. At this time the hotel said they will refund my card the 600 in charges that should have been to two other people, but caused we over limit fees and made the return from our wedding financially stressful. I stay there... More

It is a great value on the beach Convenient to all the beach bars and restaurants. The only issue I had was the smoke detector continuing to beep not only in my room but several rooms down the hall. They promptly fixed mine but needed to fix them all.

Stayed for a week with my wife, we arrived on a Sunday and found it was busy because of the weekend trade. The following weekend was worse, Friday, Saturday and Sunday night were 'enlivened' by drunks shouting out in the evening and early hours of the morning. The vast majority were young people who, as usual, seemed to think that... More

Although rather outdated, my husband and I have stayed here many times over the past 9 years. Staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Pool is clean and inviting. The beds are very comfortable. We will be going again next year.
