    Roaches in the room shower rod broken stinky smelly

  • 5.4

    Location excellent for the purpose of being there. The grounds and surrounding activities were great! The front desk staff and surrounding atmosphere was friendly and welcoming.

    The air conditioner was inconsistent and was not working properly which inturn did not allow for comfort in a nights sleep. The refrigerator went out and needed to be replaced and with food and beverages needing to be discarded due to the time it took to be looked at and replaced. We were offered and given toiletries but no room services. We would love to return or recommend a stay there however , these discrepancies need to be addressed or checked prior!

  • 5.8

    The location is great! Easy to get around town and the area in general! Pool was nice and a little park was right next door.

    This place was badly in need of work! It is just too big for the area. The smell from the ancient rugs was pretty awful. There is no feeling of security, as most of the exterior doors could be entered without a room key!Location

  • 4.2

    It was outdated, seemed a dirty. Pillows were lumpy.

  • 3.2


    Room smelled like mildew! Furniture didn't match and was stained!!! Hallway carpets stained...,Every single elevator button was missing!!!!! This hotel was very poorly maintained!!!! Regular rate was $199....we paid $89 and feel the room was not even worth that!!! Will never stay at this hotel again or go through Booked.net

  • 4.6

    The views were amazing. The room was rather comfortable with a balcony.

    The entire facility needs to be updated.There are no buttons in the elevator. You have to use your finger or an object to choose your floor. The ceilings were sagging in some areas. There were chips on the floor for an entire day without being cleaned up. There are no towelsurprises provided for the pool. I also didn't realize that the pool is public and not only for people staying in the hotel which I thought was bizarre. I will not be returning here as a guest but I will certainly walk over to enjoy a sunset.

  • 6.6

    View was priceless, restaurant great, love that I could take my dog and the room was quite big but and for the price I paid it was good. Would not pay more than $89 for tile floor!

    Back door to hotel was broken, wide open all day and night! Did not feel that safe!!

  • 10.0

    the room was exactly as posted in the pictures, the bed was perfect, the room and bathroom clean, 1st floor with ocean view (we were like 20 ft from the ocean) liked that there is an on sight restaurant and tiki bar. Older building that has been completely updated with great thought and taste. I felt safe even being on the bottom floor with out my husband there with me.

    the water pressure in the shower I very weak, the shower should have been made wider during the remodel as well as the entrance into the shower. The cleaning people come early and wake you up by knocking on the door like at 8:30 and they gather in the hallway talking and laughing at the same time.

  • 6.2

    Location was great! Close to harbor and close to town.

    Air conditioner was noisy and erratic. Pillows were very small.

  • 6.2

    There were no eggs The bed was great

    The elevator - had to poke a finger in to get the light to your floor. MORE IMPORTANTLY, the inspection certificate in the elevator expired in 2014!!!!

  • 7.0

    Waitress was rude. paid by card, was going to leave a cash tip but waitress virtually threw the card back at us & said so you didn't like the service & stormed away. Hence no tip

  • 8.2

    The staff for the most part were friendly and helpful. The restaurant was clean, the food, the drinks were good and the staff was really nice. The rooms were comfortable and we really liked the balcony outside the room on the second floor.

    The carpets in the hallways are especially old/dirty or both. At one time the beach area was maintained but it is not now. It would be a really great feature to have the beach area open and maintained. Until my husband complained the pop and other machines were left unfilled for a couple of days, then they were filled most of the time.

  • 8.2

    Hotel has a very good location rooms could be cleaner baseboard are filthy.

    We stayed three nights had to ask for refill of coffee.they never left coffee when you stay for more than 1 night.
