It was decent enough for what I paid for the rooms. Staff was very nice and helpful with any situations we had. They even warmed up the pool a little more because of the cool front that came in. Pretty view of the beachotdog. Liked the location able to walk around to other places.

The room smelled musty and the bathroom smelled like someone smoked in it even though it was a non-smoking room. There was one washcloth and 2 bath towels but no hand towel. The breakfast was nothing special. no butter or spread for the muffins, the cereal choices were mostly sugary, and the area wasn't kept clean. The staff seemed friendly,... More

The only reason I was able to take a week long vacation was finding a deal on this site for a room here averaging $50 a night. I saw some of the other reviews and decided that a little rest and relaxation outweighed the bad. I understand the building is old, and luckily I can take a lot of punishment... More
