Other than the people at the front desk I would not recommend this hotel to anyone over 30 who could afford a little more. Found the sheets to be dirty. No hot water and loud location. It might be ok for surfers on a budget but not for anyone else.

I was travelling with my family on a budget, and this place was perfect for us. A room with 3 full beds and a kitchen was only $100 a night.
