Negative Reviews

Rooms Beyond Their Prime

Guests cited issues like a leaking tiles, toilet troubles, tubs that didn't drain properly, worn-out bedspreads, thin walls, TVs that didn't function and just an overall lack of modernization or upkeep. Rather than one particular issue, there seems to be lots of little ones that add up to an unpleasant stay for some travelers.

Rooms Don't Justify Price

For some visitors they felt they paid way too much for far too little. The hotel is short on amenities and even the rooms, given their lack of disrepair, are unappealing to some guests.

Ocean View Deceptive

While guests can see the ocean from their rooms it's little more than a glimpse according to some travelers. The hotel is set across the highway from the water so you may not get the stunning sites you're expecting.
