Fair 4.0
deceptive, old and ants
We were so disappointed. First, the building looks like a three story converted old apartment building that is deceptive because you enter the building on the second floor. We were given a room right next to the lobby opening so literally people would have been at our door the entire time of our stay; we requested a room change and were put in the 3rd floor which was better. Fortunately service was good and they worked with us when we complained of security and safety concerns with the location (and the broken screen on the windows). The rooms are old and worn. The bed was ok- my husband thought it was too soft. In general, our room was dingy- there were carpet stains and things were falling apart. The lights in the bathroom were falling out of the ceiling and wall plates and vent covers were cracked and falling apart. The baseboards were rotting and screens were twisted and broken so bugs were coming in if you had your window open. The shower and surfaces were dingy and everything felt unclean. We found ants in the bathroom. And for several days found ants in my car- we are assuming were transferred on our luggage. They advertise access to a private beach- but the beach is 1/4 mile away and not connected to the hotel at all- it’s behind private homes down the street. This is an OLD beach side resort that has not been kept up well... the views are beautiful and the restaurant is good but expensive. It wasn’t worth the money and we won’t stay again.

Perfect location needs some updates
Beautiful location and pool with lounge chairs. Very relaxing and had a great time outside. The hotel is outdated. No ac and very hot at night during the summer. The bed is very uncomfortable. The staff isn’t the best with customer service.

Great place to see the ocean
It was amazing

Poor 2.0
What a joke!
It is old, run down, crappy everything other than view and location!

Good 6.0
Wished for a better and bigger room
Room 10 is not the best, as its view of the ocean is obstructed by the staircase and then you hear all the people going up and down the stairs. Also, the room is very small so there is nowhere to "hang out" except on the bed itself. There are 4 rooms on the ends that are a lot larger, but their windows don't open, so you have a view but not the soothing ocean wave noises (unless you open your doors). Pros: oceanfront, so you can hear the relaxing waves Cons: can only use the highway in one direction and there is only the hotel restaurant at the exit, no other services whatsoever. I realize they have to have a locking gate around the pool area, but every single guest had to touch it to unlock it and pass through and there was no sanitizer or wipes near it to prevent COVID after touching it.

Disappointing Stay
The room was very dated and the furniture was shabby. The photos on the site made it look much better than it was. The room felt grubby but the bed was comfortable. No air conditioning and we needed it as it was to hot to sleep even with windows open. Finally the service was slow.

Great spot to just chill out next to the ocean. My wife and I had a blast.

Adequate but lacking in furniture
View was great. Room was decent, nothing spectacular. No chair other than kitchen stool in room was the biggest disappointment.

Love the location.
We love this hotel. Been here many times. It’s location is everything. Breakfast was great for continental, we ate watching the ocean and listening to the waves. Beds were super comfortable.
