        the bathroom was the only update in the room, but sink did not drain water,

        looking off of our balcony was a roof that was full of trash , cans, paper, it was pretty discussing, elevators dirty, glass doors into the hotel filthy.

        I feel that everythink was perfect until the moment that I was cheking out my hotel where I spent my vacation call a tow truk and they tow my car and I ending waisting my time and money paying to get my car back and paing the taxi cab and I find out that I was the 3er guess who have this problem during the weekend it was a bad experience to me the person who atend me didnt told me that I need to put the piece of papar on my winshiel of my car and also when I feel it up the information about me and my car and she didnot say anythink about it if need more information about it so I think there is somethig wrong about. When I check out today the lady has told me that she didnot found information about my car and I told her to look because I did feel it up and she didnot look for and told the manager of the hotel that they didnot found any information about my car anyway I paid a taxi cab to be able to get to the lot where myh car was towing and I have to wait like 30 min. Until the tow man came and gave me my car. So that was everything that made my vacation unhappy.

        The location of the hotel is perfect & all rooms are ocean view...that was a plus.

        Hotel staff never addressed our requests, our room was right above & behind the compressors for the ac units, (loud & hot) so balcony sitting was not an option & only had one chair anyway.

        Our Stay was horrible. Rude staff, filthy room, tv didn't work, no remote, headboard from bed fell out of the wall and was lying on the floor, horrible odor like 50 people had puked all over the hotel, and the sliding patio door was glued shut. Miserable time,, would never tell anyone that they should stay there. Well never stay at that mess hole ever again. Wish I would have gotten my money back!

        No one single thing! Horrible

        Location, price was lower than other hotels next to boardwalk.

        People would smoke anywhere regardless " no smoking" signs. Lobby smelled like cigarets, entire hotel looked run down and shabby, rooms were clean and descent. U get what u paid for.

        The location is great! And the staff was good.

        The hotel needs some minor upgrades to the room bedding, tv, microwave, and frig. The bathroom was pretty decent. The hotel needs to be air conditioned throughout the entire hotel, hallways were unbearably hot! Elevators need improvement too.

        Très bien situé juste à traverser le boardwalk et on est rendu à la mer et ont est près de tous les services.

        Il fallait toujours demander pour faire la chambre parfois il était 3:00 pm et ce n'étais pas fait ausi j'ai du demander par 2 reprises qu'ils lavent le bain.

        The Calypso outside had great entertainment...the view was great..the room size was good.

        The refrigerator ws stinky....you had to unplug tv to plug in the microwave...not enough outlets....the coffemaker we requested was put in the bathroom for an outlet...the plastic handle on the toilet broke at one pull....bugs were flying around the lights at night... These things we could deal with-however-it was our vacation...the young girls at the front desk were not friendly or helpful....and the one very hot elevator to the 8th floor...whew....the hallways are very hot also...don't get stuck without a key....in which we had to replace ours twice because it wouldn't work..... All in all the trip was fun...but the hotel was too much work for us.

        Wonderful oceanfront view

        The first room I had was hot and smelled as if there was perfume covering a bad odor then when they switched our room there was trash all over the carpet.the bathroom was dirty ..there was a dirty towel hanging on the door. The shower Händel fell off as I tried to adjust the water temperature

        It was a great location we had a clean room.We had no complaints everything was good. We was there for our first anniversary we made a good choice of picking this hotel and I would recommend it to my friends.

      • Older travelers

        Room was good size bathroom was also. Great view of the beach. Room was clean.Bar on site and remodeling a restaurant. Live band one night singing 70-80 and current songs!! Very good

        Looked like it was getting a remodel but some areas were pretty shabby. Air conditioner was loud and noisy and would only keep the room cool on constant run. Door to get into the room was a Bi#%h to get into took 5 time at least to get it to finally open. Our room was above the pool and outdoor bar that they have on site so it was noisy till about 12:00. Not a good place for your room if you have kids.

      • Older travelers

        The staff was nice and helpful. The location was great, and all of the rooms were oceanfront! The price was adequate. Overall good experience.

        The hotel was undergoing some renovations, which was inconvenient. Also, the parking area was away from the hotel. The pool was small and right in front of the bar where onlookers was a bit awkward. The sliding door in the room and the bathroom faucet were broken, but were fixed when told about.

        It was located in the city I wanted to go to. Free coffee in lobby.

        Poor parking, elevator not working, dirty hallways, dirty stairs. Hotel staff working on maintence issues all day. TV not working. Loud music till 2AM

      • Family with children
        4.6

        The location was great! All the rooms are beach front which was a plus.

        The hotel was in need up repairs and updating. The elevators didn't work half the time we were there, our bathroom door didn't close, the remote control for the tv didn't work, there was no coffee maker in the room, the sliding glass door to the patio was extremely hard to open and close and the building as a whole was just old and needed cleaning.

      • Group of friends

        Great view from room. Made up for everything else.

        Not the cleanest hotel ever (not dirty though). Staff was friendly but did not give the impression they would bend over backwards to make your stay more enjoyable.
