"Clean, but Somewhat Older Hotel"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
When I booked the room online, it was supposed to be a `save 40%' deal, but had to book first. It was oceanfront side view next to second ave pier. The room was an older hotel with lots of repairs and so called `upgrades'. The mattress was old, but they do have continental breakfast. Overall experience was 6.5. The 40% savings was for Sunday through Thursday bookings only.

"Comfortable, Nice View and Economical."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The room was spacious and comfortable, but not clean. There were stains on the carpet but overall, provided a good view of the beach.

Overall Score3.0/ 5
we stayed this hotel from the 10th to the 17th of and after not going on a vacation or taking a break for ten and a half years we were so looking forward to this time off I wanted to save money to enjoy entertainment activities and went two book this motel @ 1,075. this was a lot of blood sweat and tears just to get this much money to pay for my room,we went into the room and I was a musty odor not sure if it was clean or not because of trash bags are still left in the room cushions or left out of the couch and chair that little couch / loveseat that had a rollaway bed and that's was the most uncomfortable thing you could ever I also. I also use A whole can of Lysol in the room. the bathroom had a crack in the ceiling at the corn or of the back part of the ceiling.. which is cinder block. not sure what the main responsibilities are but we know for sure they did not change our beds every day we mark the bed in our way just to see what they did and it was at least for the days that the maze didn't even touch the bed with changing the sheets,we also noticed that the floors had never been vacuumed while we were there same pieces of papers or items on the floor had been there the whole week,we had to go downsta the pop machine out by our floor, the pop machine out by our was busted into calling someone not too be able to get any item it from this particular machine, we would hold the elevator open and move out of the way and say excuse me to staff and no1 saying thank was done by staff of this hotel they were very rude and disrespectful in a matter of not even saying thank you back when someone goes out of their way to do for them and in fact we cleaned our room more than a maid did, one day we stayed out in the pool and from where we were sitting we could see them a in the room next to us and sweep the outside balcony I watched and noticed that she did not touch there were several outlets in the room that was barely hanging in the wall fire safety hazards is what I was told. .44 the lighting in the rooms were terrible you had to open up the curtains just to see what you were doing one the online site do not say if there's a bathtub or not in the rooms. it seems like every day it was served breakfast the same thing,and the big thing to me was in the pool and watching from the balcony above we could see a group of 8 people at least in the pool with open beer containers ..Music loud. .some people got up to leave because they are either way you look at it I pay way too much money to stay and get this, service or lack of it..,bottom line there are no incentives to stay at this motel quality was poor the very few amount of staff that were there that were nice deserve the credit that they getI know the day that the last people were in the pool the people were reported to management someone came out to say something to them and even give them at al to cover the open can of beer in the pool around kids but they did not leave they still stay there it seems like management had duel roles.. do we know who the manager even was with Rose one on duty and not one time do we know who the manager even was. stop eating behind the desk staff sitting whersome of the poorest reception ever on my cell phone in the wall five would go in and outould go in and out.

I wanted to save money to enjoy entertainment activities and went to book this motel @ 1,075. This was a lot of blood, sweat and tears just to get this much money to pay the room. In the room, there was a musty odor not sure if it was clean or not because of trash bags still left around. The couch/love seat that had a roll away bed and it was the most uncomfortable thing you could ever lay on. I used a whole can of Lysol in the room. The bathroom also had a crack in the ceiling. I'm not sure what the main responsibilities are but we know for sure they did not change our beds every day and we also noticed that the floors had never been vacuumed while we were there as same pieces of papers or items on the floor had been there the whole week. Overall, the staff was also rude and disrespectful. We will not be coming back.
