2/5 Poor

Traveled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The only thing I liked about the facility was the view. The facility itsekf is so worn down. The stairs are very narrow and dangerous. The rioms were dirty, the vent was clogged with dust & dust mites, the sheets had stains on them. The ONLY nice thing i have to say about the property was the view was nice as well as the lady whi checked me in & out was very nice. Other than that, I will never stay there again.

If you are looking for a room right on the beach within a reasonable budget and not planning on spending much time in the room. Then this is the perfect place. This is an old motel with sand in the carpets and bath tub with just enough comfort to sleep and shower. If you are planning on spending a lot of time in your room then this is not the place for you. I am already planning on coming back to this motel.

The hotel afforded the opportunity to swim if the beach was not compatible for some in your party. Easy check in and out. Great location.
