Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Very disappointing
Got to room and there was something spilled all over the wall, mildew all over the curtains and picture in the room. Chairs were not cleaned. Only thing that looked clean was the bedding. Stayed here last year and it was great. This year is was terrible. Front desk let us move rooms but the second room wasn’t much better. Mildew all over ceiling looked like it had been painted over but it was still coming through. Breakfast was a disaster. Kept running out of food. They were not equipped for the amount of people staying there. The third night there was no parking so the maintenance guy told us to park under the covering where you park to check in. Not worth it for the price but was basically paying for the beachfront access.
Mildew all over curtain

The hotel is old, but the staff does a great job on keeping it maintained. The staff is the most valuable asset for this location. A day at the bar with Don, the bartender, is a must! Every interaction with the staff turned into a pleasant conversation. I can’t say enough about how professional and hospitable the staff is. Thank you!
