Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
It has the potential to be a really nice little place. on a good note no roaches that we saw, saying that there wasn't much paint on the walls and it looked like the shower/bathtub was painted and peeling .with some paint and a few decorations you could easily make this a key west looking motel. Also don't look for the management nonexistent, you don't get a room key you get a code via Email if you lose it or forget the code you're screwed. If you cannot find anywhere else to stay then it will do.

Sketchy old rundown place furniture not fit to sit on ..activities going on that made me feel unsafe ….spent one hour and left …..should be given a full refund

6/10 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
I’m not sure how this place got such glowing reviews. This place looks like an older motel that had previously been used for long term tenants that they spruced up as cheaply as possible. I didn’t necessarily feel unsafe due to a deadbolt on the door but the door had a glass top where anyone could peep in and the blinds on the other window were broken with a gaping hole I covered with a dish towel. There was a really strong air freshener that seemed like it was masking another odor. I was so strong it did give me a bit of a headache. I will say the place was clean.I actually left after one night. Just didn’t feel comfortable.

Single female, I booked a 2 night stay, stayed 1 night, was at facility 12 hours, some of the clientele was less then desirable, woke up to the man in next room screaming expletive vulgar comments during long phone call to someone, was very scary, so I left. You get what you pay for.
