My husband and I stayed here while visiting family. We arrived not know what to expect reading other reviews so this is our take. The outside of the hotel is a bit dated/quirky with all the paintings but it adds to the charm. The rooms were very clean and OCEANFRONT! We had a small kitchenette which is nice if you...

I am so sorry about the overbooking we had. We tried our best to accommodate you. When we have to store luggage, we do put it in a place that is accessible to you, so we could have happily taken care of that issue.

Stayed here while friend were getting married at the Pink Shell. We saved money by staying here. It's no RItz but it's always a good party and the staff is very friendly. The bed was very comfortable. The Hotel itself needs some updating but it's still a decent place to stay and in the middle of everything on the beach!

Excellent hotel.. clean and the hotel across the street was well worth the lower cost from the actual resort with all the amenities! Would definitely stay again without hesitation! Check out the Chicago dog stand inside resort it will not disappoint. Italian beef was to die for! Owner is from chicago and knew how to do a beef n hotdogs!!
