Amazing location. Simple clean pool. Great beach. Great for families.
Look this is not a resort. It is a very basic room but to get an ocean front room with a balcony in high season for 2 nights for less than $400 what do you expect. Yes it's basic. Yes it's dated and could use a facelift but it was spotless and front staff was excellent. Kids had a blast. Only 4 stories so no mile long walk to your room. Filled with families. No drunk 20 year olds. For the price. You cannot beat it.

Love the location- right on the beach, walking distance to pier and a few bars/restaurants and a short drive to the marshwalk. As for the place itself- still needs quite a bit of work. Note that if you are staying on the 4th floor, you will basically be sharing the rooftop with the whole floor. You won't have your own private balcony. Same deal if you are on the bottom floor, you will be sharing the pool deck. We know we didn't spend a lot on the room and are not very picky but I feel like some of it was a little hard to look past. The bottom corner of our door was missing. We had to stuff a washcloth in it so nothing might crawl in and our neighbors couldn't hear every word we spoke. The AC unit was scary looking and we thought it might burn the place down when we left. From what we could see from the beach it looked like we were one of two that hadn't been replaced yet. The shower didn't drain so that was pretty gross to stand in. The bathroom looked like it had been updated other than that. We saw a few cockroaches alive and dead. I went up to the room to grab something and found that I'd been locked out. When I went to the desk they gave me no explanation why my card wouldn't work, only gave me a new one. Parking was great however I'm guessing because of the large dumpster the lot smelled disgusting. The porch and pool area looked nice and recently updated. The mini-mart attached to the hotel is convenient and actually not over priced. I'm thinking/hoping that we may have had a better experience if we had been in a different room.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the 3rd or 4th floor for a private balcony.
