Unclean and uninviting

I checked in and out of this place within 45 minutes! Unclean, fusty smell, noisy air con, broken lock on door, dead cockroach next to cutlery tray. The air con was producing pieces of dirt which was being distributed all over the 'kitchenette area'. The microwave plug wouldn't even reach the plug socket and you had to hold the microwave over the sink so you could actually use it! I was on the ground floor and just felt very uneasy and unsafe, the area just did not feel right and I had a very bad feeling as soon as I walked through that door! I went back over to reception to complain and get a refund. I spoke to Curtis on the front desk and he was so polite, friendly and apologetic. He had to get the manager to check that it was ok to get a refund etc and the manager didn't seem particularly bothered by my experience, wasn't very apologetic.. it felt like it was just an inconvenience to him! However I checked out and managed to find a different hotel which was clean, comfortable and welcoming!

Pics online are deceiving. Awful rooms. Checked in and back out within 30 minutes. Left with no hotel for spring break, but found one within the hour. The only good thing was the asst mgr Marcus! Sorry, this property is a bummer.

We booked last minute for a family spring break. Had a no-view room but upon arrival they upgraded us to a bay view room. The room is a standard motel room and as others have said, is dated. It was clean though one pillow had s nasty red stain on the pillow itself (not the cover). The view was nicer than expected. The heated pool and jacuzzi were fine. Ate at the restaurant twice and it was decent. So, not fancy but nice enough to return again.

Spring break mini vacation

Stayed during spring break. Staff was friendly and rooms were good. The one down side was the weather was cold when we were there. They stated heated pool which we did not think was very heated. Not even a warm hint to the water. That was the only down side to the property. Would stay there again.

Don't feel safe!!

The pictures on the website are very deceiving and the actual hotel is very old and outdated. Two of the lamps in our room did not work, the door handle on the outside of the patio door was broken off, and room was very small. Also, we did not feel very safe because the locks were rusty and old. On the website it states that they have modern accommodations but everything was very outdated. We paid way too much for what we got out of the hotel and amenities. The website advertises a game room for kids but multiple of the machines were out of service and it was very small. If you are looking for a beach side hotel this is not for you! This hotel is not ocean side, it is by a bay. There is sand and a bay that you can hang out by and play in but there is moss in the water and on the sand. This hotel is fine if you're just looking for somewhere to stay but not if you're looking for a resort. I don't recommend!!!
