Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This property was ugly and so run down. Also, it wasn't cheap at all! It offered no coffee, which is standard in all rooms I've ever stayed in! I will never use your site again for posting availability here. We were so uncomfortable we didn't sleep and left early. Honestly, I want my money back. Photos make it look decent...It's not. GROSS!

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Property is dated and needs attention. There is false advertising as it does not provide air conditioning and there is no breakfast. A cup of coffee and a gas station plastic wrap coffee cake is not breakfast. You might overlook these items but then the customer service provided by the front desk (James) is deplorable! He was confrontational and unprofessional. Would not recommend this property.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Very quiet and clean.. Room was large. Bathtub needs a mat and a hand bar. Coffee service in room would be nice. A plus was room had a mini fridge. Price was very good for the location. Also one more chair would be appreciated as my husband always appropriates it if just one. Also, room had a nice fireplace.

Nice quiet area. Disappointed for the amount paid for the room that there was no coffee maker and ocean view was partial. Most of the view was a roof. Most disappointing was that there was no hot water. Definitely will not be staying here next time.
