It was cheap so used for a dive trip. Never again. Bed was old and hard as a rock. Roaches in bathroom. No maid service. It was a nice place once but owner has gotten lax on care and services. The location is good but just a touch too low for me.

Thanks for leaving a review. First of all, however, I cannot find your name in our reservation log so can't be sure if you stayed with us or what room you may have been in. That information would help in looking into the issues you mention. Beds are a matter of opinion whether they're too hard, too soft or just...

Are you going to PCB for the Gulf or the fancy hotel room? Decently clean and literally across the street from the beach. Not in the 'touristy' area which we loved.....see you Oct 2017....so no one take my rooms!!!

Room was ok, bathroom was small with a shower stall that I could barely turn around in. The water pressure was very poor also. Loved the location, nice staff, friendly people. There is a convenience store directly in front of the motel that was .... convenient lol. Overall a good stay.

The price was so good that I was thinking it might not be that great but I was surprised to see the place was dated but very nice. Our room had character and was clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were walking distance to the beach and restaurants. I would for sure stay there again.
