We were pleasantly surprised to find a clean room, 2 double beds, newly painted and updated bathroom. We had a corner room with balcony. We had previously stayed at the main Courtyard Villa, which we enjoyed, but this was every bit as nice and much quieter. Although there is no one in lobby, the place is secure. Five digit code...

Please do not stay here. Hotel doubles as a hotel and rehab. Appears lovely outside but beware. Very awkward setup. Do not think the building was meant to be a typical resort hotel. Hasn't been touched since it was built in the 99's. stained carpets, torn drapery and dirty bedspreads. Not to mention the rest. Had to buy my own... More

The place is outdated, dirty, overpriced, and most of all unsafe. The elevator inspection certificate was expired since 2010. I have never been at a hotel or motel without a telephone in the room. So unbelievable! There were no photos on the website of the rooms which I understand now why. It such a shame because from the outside the... More

Rooms smell musty and is very dirty. Management doesn't want to help with refund, discount or change of room, people that work here say that's how it's always been. This place needs a full reno ASAP!!! Disgusting .....

When we arrived at the hotel it looked pretty modern on the outside. Then going inside we were shocked to find out how much of a dump it was. The place was built in the nineties and has never been renovated since. Now if they took care of the place it would prob hold up well but I was horrified... More

We found this hotel by chance, made a detour into this little town and were lucky enough to find a room that was clean, staff friendly and in walking distance of everything. Had only intended on spending one night but extended our stay for a few more nights. The hotel is only across the street from the ocean and the... More

We had many conversations with the hotel staff before arriving -I was with a friend and my elderly father. Shortly before arrival I was told there was a problem with the room -no details but they had a second floor 2 bedroom "suite" similar to the one we had booked. From the parking lot it looked like we were the... More
