Upon entering the unit, you can immediately tell this was a very old hotel. Trip hazards going up the stairs as a tile came off. The carpets inside the room was torn up. The doors look like they had been chewed up (literally) - maybe because it was a pet friendly hotel. The shower curtains were very dingy looking. The... More

This place was HORRIBLE it smelled nasty, the fire detector was in the dresser drawer, the bed sheets/comforter was stained, the refrigerator was rusty, the table chair was duct tapped and the doors/walls had black marks and all scuffed up. This by far was a nightmare motel.

Booked this hotel for a last minute vacation with our kiddos. Was very disappointed to open the door to our first room. Not only was it small, there were roaches crawling on the walls. The bathroom did not have toilet paper either. The rooms are not good for big families. We are a family of 5 and it was not... More

We stay at this hotel every summer. It is perfect for us and our family, comfortable cool rooms and a refreshing pool. We are always treated with respect and kindness. The price is great for being so close to the beach (3 minutes), next door to the grocery store and all the fun shops. We were excited to see the... More

Although the location is great ( close to the beach and grocery store), this was my worst hotel I have ever stayed. I am an easy to please person, but this was actually scary. The pictures on the website are deceiving. For the price we paid, I surely expected more. We got a shack like room, more like a dungeon,... More

Some time, long ago, this might have been a nice motel. No doubt some of the roaches remember the grand opening. Surely the carpets were there. Ok, places get old. But the worst part was the staff. I arrived at 4:00 pm- my reserved room was not ready. "Sorry, 1/2 hour. " a half hour came and went." Sorry, possibly... More

Tried to find a hotel on the beach. This one was 7 blocks from beach. Paid $100 and then changed our mind after seeing the room. Would only give us half of our money back. Finally agreed to let us off the hook for $25 cash. This place was pretty run down and depressing.

The rooms are sadly out dated and in need of upgrades. Carpets need to be replaced. The service at check in was very good. Kind owners. Attentive owners. The location of this Inn is excellent. Easy in. Easy out. The price is reasonable and at the time we stayed there, they allowed pets.
