Great view, friendly staff.
Very friendly staff. Beautiful view of the ocean. Although the decor is a little outdated and the bathroom small, the room was comfortable and had everything we needed - including a refrigerator/ freezer. Would definitely stay here again.

Good but Outdated
The staff were great and the location was amazing! The hotel itself needs a big updating though. The carpet in our room was very sticky so we had to keep socks and/or shoes on the entire time.

Staff were friendly and helpful. The location is terrific, beach access right out the back entrance. The room was clean and the beds comfy with lots of pillows.

Jamie, us6 night trip
Good 6.0
Upon checking in, was greeted by one lady then waited a good bit and I asked can I check in as the lady was stacking some type of flyer. Felt like I was bothering her to check me in. I appreciated getting in an hour early. Our room was dated and not very clean. Fingernails on the bathroom floor the press on kind. Coffee maker was filthy. No plans of using it. I had to get toilet paper right away as there was barely enough on the roll. No TV guide in the room, called the front desk to ask what a particular channel could be found. The pool was covered, had a sign if you wanted to use it contact front desk. We did get to sit on the patio for a nice view in the morning. Access to beach was nice. The hotel is lacking in friendliness and cleanliness. Definitely needs some renovations, would not recommend.

Nice play to stay customer service needs work
We got there a bit early and they did not allow us to check in early at all, Room still showed signs of not being vacuumed after we checked in. We ran out of toilet paper with 24 hrs of check in and asked for a roll and the staff had to ask if it was ok to give us another roll. They should keep your room with an extra roll in case you run out. I found most of the staff not friendly. But a few went out of their way to make us happy. Decided to book another night and at first they were going to make us check out and remove all our belongings from the room. After consulting with them about couldn't they arrange for another customer to go in the room we booked next door and allow us to stay in our room. They finally worked with us and allowed us to stay saving us from a lot of trouble moving. Breakfast area is really nice and the rooms are nice. Walking distance to the pool and beach are closer than the rest of the hotels down the beach. We did enjoy our stay here and really wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Hopefully customer service works a little bit on their friendliness.

Bathtub clogged
Nice location if you want quiet. Very nice Problem with bathroom tub clogged. As I took my shower U was standing in ankle deep water

Exceptional 10.0
Some of the cleaning crew was not very friendly and I was not impressed by their appearance. They were kinda "shady" in my opinion. We had wires laying on the floor running from the A/C and heat unit to I don't know where. They were not safe looking. The door would not lock unless we slammed the door. We also had family emergency the last day we were there which means we left on Friday afternoon instead of Saturday morning. We asked if ther was any partial refund that we could get and we were told no because they would be unable to rent that room out after we left. I do understand the check out policy but we also had an emergency that required us to leave right away and make a 10 hour home.
