Pros: Near the beach
Cons: cleanness, I would recommend vending machine with snacks,
Location: not much around
The first night we had emergency personnel come to the hotel for a person screaming with a panic attack, The second night someone decided to explode fire crackers around 1:30pm waking me up, will not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Thanks for your feedback! Both those incidents were extremely unusual, and we can assure you that such occurrences almost never happen at our property. The firecrackers were not done on our property either, it was from a property nearby (I checked myself). Normally it is quiet and calm at the Golden Host!

Pros: Nice and neat abd clean and the personal are friendly and happy all the time.Always smileing.
Cons: There could be microwaves and refrigerators in all the rooms
Location: We go to the beach and pinecraft.
We enjoy this motel as it is close to downtown and all the things we like to do and see while we are in town.The beach is not that far away and traffic isn't bad either.

Loved how clean it was.

Would recommended this hotel. The staff was polite and the room was really clean. It's a bit out dated but for the price it was perfect.

Friendly Staff

Posted Apr 4, 2017
Pros: The pool and friendly staff
Cons: The beds were really small for a full bed and the air conditioner was very loud The carpets are in need of being replaced or cleaned well
Location: There is a miniature golf course and a very nice seafood restaurant. The beaches are about 15 mins away
We booked for 5 nites and ended up staying a 6th nite.

Nice location to what we were looking for,

Posted Mar 27, 2017
Pros: Location.
Cons: Pool was not accessible, just nasty. WIFI didn't exist in our room!!! They said it way my devise. Funny, when we got to next place I had it!
Location: Cody's restaurant.
We stayed last year with our boys, thought we would stay again. It is what it is. Nice location. Breakfast free, if you get there early to is just okay. they don't seem to want to keep it filled.

Thanks for your feedback. The wifi issue was on a per-device basis, but has since been resolved where all devices can acquire IP addresses with no issue. We're sorry you had that issue.
