Just... DON'T DO IT! ***After our stay July 7-9, 2016, never ever will we return! *** Handprints on walls/bathroom, dirty mirrors, huge hole in our ceiling! Our friend got LOCKED INTO her room and was treated horrifically by the staff in the office who told us to "go away" or call 911 when we asked for help getting her out...

We stayed here during Memorial Day weekend, and understandably the price was high. $300. Rooms have been someone upgraded, and are clean and decent. We really needed to work on the air conditioner to get it to function, but in the end it worked, but with a roar. TV worked great though. The seam and grout areas in the bathroom,...

This is my go-to summer vacation spot. We have stayed at this hotel for the past 7 years and really enjoy the location, cleanliness, and the friendly staff. The hotel itself is right across the street from the beach, so you can walk out your hotel door and be in the sand in like 3 minutes. It is about a...

I was placed in this hotel through social services. Bad time of my life. Now I am doing well. Let's just say the owner forbid me from the pool. He also made me feel like complete trash for my misfortune. I would never consider this place for anything. The smile on their face is a sham. They don't care about...

This place is sketchy from the get go. Even the security guard in the parking lot warned us. The comforter in the bed could stand on its own with all the funk on it. The sheet had a noticeable blood stain even though it had been washed. The lamp shades were shredded and hanging off. Even though they charged us...

When I called to confirm on the week of, I was told that my reservation had been cancelled, and they had attempted to contact me several times. This was a lie.
