Old
Extremely old hotel hasn't been renovated since the 1950's. The paint is chipping off the walls, old carpet, old tubs, sinks,furniture is very old from 1960's. Not convenienant to any stores. Need Uber/Lyft. The Armand Square has limited restaurants and the food is not that good. No C-stores in the area. The front desk and pool/bar staff were very nice. The restaurant staff was not hospitable. Their food is OK and automatic 18% service charge on all orders for less than average service. Wifi is not that good. Would not stay there again.

Older property needs updating
This is an older property that has not been updated. Felt that it was over-priced. Staff was friendly and helpful, but we had to call maintenance to even get the shower on. Pool was nice and the beach was easily accessible.

Just okay
Front desk help was prompt and very courteous and helpful. Place was cheap for the area . Understandably so. Old and tired and in need of updating. Even the bedding while clean was damp. Bathroom and room old and tired looking. All in all not bad stay. Beach was beautiful, pool were nice and good and affordable for the young ones with small children and on a budget. Staff were polite and helpful.
