6/10 Good

Basically very average.
For the money, this was very average, at best. Just a basic room. No frills. Supposedly, the top floor rooms are an upgrade because they have new televisions. Very small screen. Front desk personal were not very friendly. Room was not ready at 4pm like it was supposed to be. Beach view was excellent. Inadequate parking. Parking lot is shared with Sharkey's restaurant, which is a very busy place.

Do not recommend
We definitely will not stay here ever again! My email said we could check in early if the room was ready, the very rude girl checking people in snapped and said No you have to come back at 4pm. Ok, that's fine. So we go to the beach. There is no public restroom to use, parking is an absolute joke! The parking spots are so small and close together and maybe 20 available that are also shared with a restaurant, otherwise the parking is down the street on the opposite side! The tv didn't work. The elevator is big enough to hold 1 person and the luggage cart, IF you can find one to use. The hotel reaked of Marijuana and was loud at all times. I definitely would not stay here if you have children or plan to relax.

We had a good time. The hotel was close to restaurants and shops, so we walked to eat and shop. The view was great.

The location of our room was excellent. We were on the ground floor steps away from the sand. We got coupons for our kids to eat free at Sharky’s (right next door), so that was great! The room needs some attention, though. Mattresses were worn out, and the facades on the kitchen cabinets were broken. Saturday morning, I went to the front desk and requested housekeeping to come and freshen up the room - sweep, leave new towels, put fresh sheets on the bed. They never came, even after a second trip to the office that afternoon. Also, the place shares parking with Sharky’s, so we had to park in overflow a block away the whole time. That is not ideal with two small kids.

Will never stay here again
I was told I wouldn’t have to pay until arrival. I was charged the day before. I was also charged fees the hotel didn’t mention. When we asked for an extra blanket, they were none. The pool was gross, it needs to be cleaned.

Disappointed in property
The hotel was not what it looks like in the description in the pictures. I felt very unsafe. They were people loitering all in the stairwells my room did not look like any of the pictures it looked very unsafe therefore I did not stay at this place I left to go to a hotel where I felt safe. The pool was taped off

Shouldn't advertise as a resort or private beach.
The hotel needs updating and more . It had an ice machine on the 1st floor which was either slow or empty. Parking was the worst as the lot is shared with Sharky's, "move your feet, lose your seat" type of a situation. The parking pass does you no good, anyone and everyone will park there and use the ice machine. The view was great, all rooms are beach view. The room smelled of weed when we entered, not so bad if thats what you're in to, yet want to charge YOU a refundable deposit of $50 for incidentals..they should concider leaving a broom and dust pan so you can sweep up sand after hitting the beach. The room staff we met were always helpful and pleasant and offered to clean or give you clean towels and T.P. I would have to think really hard about staying there again but only due to the parking and the fact it really isn't a resort, more of a beach front motel with a view.

Hotel was clean. They don’t service daily unless asked I guess. I had to go looking for towels daily. Hotel is running down and beds are awful springs right in the back. But the location is perfect in between sharkys and senior frogs. Was loud but doable for my crew.
