    Warning! Bedbugs!

    Went for our Anniversary and we planned on staying for 5 days. It was the second night that we woke up with big welped up bumps on our bodies. We started to examine the room and found evidence of bed bugs! We lifted off sheets to bed and found dried blood all over the side and the skeleton of a dead bedbug. We went down to front desk immediately where the guy working was extremely rude and insensitive about our situation! I showed him the pictures and my bites! They only refunded us for the time we were not going to be staying there and not for the past 2 nights that we were sleeping with the nasty bugs. He claimed the mattresses were brand new and that there is no way it was bedbugs! I do not recommend anyone ever stay here! Disgusting and disappointed in this hotel and staff!

    Right on the beach!

    This hotel itself was ok, but the location is awesome right on the beach. The rooms were damp and dated but clean, and the bed was comfy. The pool was on the small side and Saturdays are jam packed, the beach is packed as well, hard to find a place to sit. The bar staff was very nice and accommodating, room cleaning was slow and they forgot to come one day and getting fresh pool towels was like pulling teeth. Gross to be forced to use the same pool/beach towels multiple days. Don't think I will come back to this hotel, will look for another one on the beach.

    I give it 2 stars

    This is an old hotel, and surface renovations cannot hide that fact - the rooms are small, dark, and dingy. We bought our stay here on Priceline and it was rated 4 star. Absolutely false advertising - it is more of a Motel 6 motel type accommodation, definitely not worth $188 US. Bathrooms are very small, tubs have been replaced with a walk-in shower which is nice. There is no vanity, only a sink, so no place to put any personal items. The best thing about the place is that they do have nice bath products. The front desk staff is extremely unhelpful, almost to the point of being rude, and certainly don't know how to smile. We requested two wine glasses for our room and were advised that only suites can have wine glasses??!! Balconies are only separated by a short railing so there is no privacy and absolutely no security - somebody can easily hop over the railing, Even though the hotel is right on the beach, you have to pay for chairs and umbrellas to use on the beach (about $40 for a couple). Even though the hotel is on the beach and the rooms have balconies, they are on the sides of the building - so the views are of the parking lot or building next door. In summary - DO NOT STAY here!

    Older Hotel - Great Pool & Beach

    This hotel is way over priced for what you get. The pool, hot tub and beach are beautiful. The rooms are like Motel 6 at best. They have done some remodels of the bathrooms since I was there last but not worth the money. We had breakfast the next morning..... Me, Wife & Brother.... $52 total.... not even any free coffee! The beds they advertise as queen were comfortable enough but not much larger than a full size. We will try to find something else when in the area next time.

    DO NOT WASTE MONEY HERE

    Worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Terrible customer service, terrible amenities. Did not even provide free water to guests. Do not waste your time and money here. Extremely disappointing. You are better off paying a little more somewhere else and actually feel like a hotel guest.
