The place seems true to form. They tell you up front no check-in until 4pm. The pool (outdoor is what I saw) and rooms look clean, staff is friendly. The places seems to be busy. Beach access is right out the back.

Couldn't get into room at 2 o'clock came back at 3. Same thing, room isn't ready, then she says check in isn't till 4. I obviously overlooked that when I was booking. 4 is really late for this hotel. Go to room and floor is gross. Stains everywhere. We then notice in the corner of the room, laying in plain...

We have stayed at the Viking now for the past 3 times to the beach. Nothing fancy but great rates, clean rooms, and oceanfront. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Love the rooms on the bottom floor with 3 beds and kitchen. Makes a nice trip to the beach when you are on a tight budget and can cook in...

This site stated there was an indoor pool -- there isn't an indoor pool. This site said they had wifi - they did not. Maintenance had to come several times. The door to the balcony did not work - there was 2 televisions but only one remote - there was no light bulbs in the lamps - the phone didn't...

You get what you pay for. It's somewhere to lay your head at night. There was some sketchy people, always cat calling. Staff was very informal and you get charged an additional 56$ for a resort fee? What resort?

Hotel was pretty nice. It was right on the beach had a great view of the ocean. Nice outdoor pool and indoor pool. They also had a nice outdoor baby pool. The elevator was scary and would break down so i walked to the top and down being pregnant that sucked.

This place was terrible, we went in the room and almost walked back out, instead we tried the pool and there was broken glass in the pool so we took our kid and went back to the room. Then we looked at the stained carpets, cigarette burns, wall unit a/c the was dripping on the bed, hole in the faucet...

I stayed at Viking because it was one of the most affordable places online at the time. It's kind of dirty and a old, but I never had high standards in the first place. What I regret is booking the room online because when I arrived I realized I could have just booked a hotel when I arrived at a...

The desk clerk was really nice. We checked in at 2.00pm. The desk clerk could tell my husband was disabled, so she helped us get to our room early. It is inexpensive ,no frills. It has analog tv. It is right on the beach front and it has rooms large enough for families with kids, that otherwise could not afford...
