Not a thing.
The bed was very comfy.
The hotel is rundown and could use updating. The ac unit on the outside was falling apart. There was no blow dryer in the room. It would be more useful if the path to/from beach went directly to the foot wash area.
Best affordable place available
The hotel is right on the beach, not a block away, not a street away, go out the back door and be on the beach. All rooms face the sides so all rooms have a partial ocean partial city view, all rooms have a balcony. The hotel was clean and the staff were helpful and friendly. The price for this hotel was great, similar hotels are double and anything cheaper/similar price is not on the beach or not very good looking. Hotel has a 24 hour security guard so no need to worry about your car or safety at all. Our room had a small kitchenette with all the pots and pans and dishes you'd need with a fridge and microwave.
The pool is small and always crowded. The hotel is a little dated but not bad. The walk from the back door to the beach is long and there is no boardwalk, so the hot soft sand can be difficult when carrying chairs/umbrellas/coolers. If they built a boardwalk or just put down a mat to the beach id give this place 4.5 stars!
Good location, not expensive
reasonable price, location is good, no luxurious hotel but if you looking for a place to sleep and take a shower, this is the place, friendly staff, and clean place.
Location and friendly staff
Not bad for the money
Beach is just a small walk away
It's very dated would like to see the rooms updated
on the gulf side! Very short walk to the beach. Ocean view from every room. Room and bathroom was clean. Staff was very courteous and helpful.
Only negative is that the wifi was very slow. I had faster results with 3G/4g.
The bar and restaurant are as good or better as any place on the island. All beers are $3 coldest in town and drinks are $3 happy hour and $4 regular price including topshelf. But the beast feature is Harry the bartender. Which will always make your day even that much more enjoyable. With his free appetizers and bar snacks he makes himself or just being around him. And the steak and sandwich I had were top class just like all the employees in that area.
The hotel staff was terrible and they didn't protect a customer being assaulted by another man who they didn't even know was a guest or freeloader using the pool. In fact the guest left the pool area to spend the rest of the day in the room (i was the guest) while the attacker got to enjoy the rest of the day at the pool. And the staff gives you a feeling like your bothering them.
How close it was to the beach and it was clean.
They had no WiFi, no breakfast and the beds or pillows were comfortable!!
Hotel is very outdated.
Liked the fact that it was ocean front. Marina at the front desk was really nice and gave us the scoop on the area. The room had a kitchette but we only used the full size fridge.
The room was a bit humid probably due in part to the hotels ocean front location. The pillows were Incredibly lumpy. Bring your own if you have a issue with lumpy pillows.
The hotel was nice, with balconies.
It wasn't really near any bars. Being on the beach didn't offer much value as the cheaper hotels were just across the street.
