We stayed here on a quick trip down to the coast. The price and the ratings were both good. Check in was quick and friendly, the hotel offers a free breakfast that is made to order. The rooms are a little outdated and have a certain lingering smell. Smoking isn't allowed but the hotel is pet friendly so this may... More

She was very busy cooking, serving breakfast for a packed house ,on the 4th of July weekend, and greeted everyone with a smile. One thing that needs some attention- the bathroom toilet bowl....

You get what you pay for. The room was big & the beds were comfortable. The carpet, tile & tubs need to be replaced. The room had an overwhelming mildew smell. Bad enough that it gave my 2 year old a snotty green nose. The grout in the bathroom is solid, black mold & the bottom of the tub is... More

This hotel is very close to the water, it has a beautiful courtyard and a hot cooked to order breakfast. The rooms are nice and clean and the front desk staff were very accommodating, friendly and responsive. There was free wine in the lobby in the evening. I will definitely stay there again.

We checked in at 3:00. Went to our room to find one of the beds not made, the blanket and pillows were lying on the floor, no towels in the bathroom (or anywhere), and pubic hair in the shower. Called down to the office and informed them of the situation and was told it would be taken care of right... More
