I came down with my friends for prom weekend and had a great experience at Bonito. As for non prom people...I would absolutely come down with a family. The rooms were nice considering the great price. The staff was incredibly kind. Thank you Bonito, we will be back!!

This place was absolutely DISGUSTING!!! I went into the restroom and a big cockroach scurried across the floor and into a huge hole in the wall. I wanted to shower but i refused to do so. I ended up sleeping in my car because the beds are rock hard and have plastic on them. Worst place ever. The two women...

The nastiest motel I have ever stayed at, EVER! Oh my, I don't even know where to begin. For starters I stayed 2 nights and I got a "(newly renovated)" room, as that is how it was listed on their website when I made the reservation. I actually paid a little extra for the room with the "renovated" in the...

I'm giving this hotel 1 star because it really was awful. It was fine for what my friends and I wanted though which was a party hotel where no one bothered us at a good price. The location was great. The room was a good deal but it was not in good shape. There was rust and the mini kitchen...

Seems like a party hotel. Definitely not for families! Their is rust and mold and mildew in the bathroom. The water for The shower was hot and then icy cold with no other water running in the room to cause it to do that. That made showering a 4 and 6 year old very difficult! Not a pleasant experience...
