  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

The hotel was good. But, the rooms are small and the double beds are tight. Location is ok. A good 15-20 minutes from beaches and historic district. Further than we wanted to be and it easily could be a 30 minute drive to the beach with traffic. Hotel was fine for two nights but not longer than that. It was clean and safe but not close to any attractions.

Everybody was happy and polite. We like the hotel good price. But the room wasn't as clean as it should. One of the beds had a few stains and the bathroom curtains was smelly like it wasn't changed in a while, there was hair in the bathtub. That is the only reason I don't give a better rating... cleanness is my first priority. And wasn't good.
