        The location was pretty good

        The bathroom could be improve and the checkout is way to early

        Location was close in proximity to the beach.

        Awful service from the hotel staff. The bathroom was dirty and looked to be falling apart. The elevator smelled like vomit, from the time we checked in to the time we checked out. We actually took the stairs to the 4th floor, each time we left and returned to our hotel, it was that bad. I never imagined I would ever be the person to give such an awful review (I am extremely low maintenance, and have backpacked all over Asia and parts of Africa), but this experience has opened my eyes to how bad a hotel stay can be.

        Good position for the beach and good restaurants

        The decor was a bit tired

      • Group of friends

        The only nice thing I can say is that it was across the street from the beach. The bartender was nice and the front desk guy at check in was very helpful.

        One of the worst. They stated it as "Art Deco" - I would state it as "Used Target." The beds were low to the ground and had no box springs. The bedspreads/comforters were orange and red stripes. The air conditioning was mediocre at best. The room was very noisy! You could hear people walking above you. My room was next to maintenance (on the third floor in the middle of the hotel). I was awakened at 1:30 AM to the weather channel! They had turned the TV up so loud that it was blasting in my room. It cost $30 to Valet park your car - yet I had to wait 30 minutes to give him my car. They charge $10 resort fee for Cont breakfast and happy hour. No juice or fruit in the AM and only watered down drinks for HH. No beer or wine.
