“Should have been better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2012

This hotel is a college party house!!!!!!!!!!! Not very clean. Our appliances in our room were damaged. The remote didn't work. We were promised the hotel would have the indoor pool open, but they didn't. However, they did move us to the one that did have the indoor pool and on the way there I was approched by two thugs standing in the parking deck!

Needed an inexpensive place for one night. Sceptical because of the low price of $29, but was checking in late and leaving early. Not much to look at on the exterior, but our room was actually very nice. Clean, nice bathroom, nice kitchen area with large fridge. Would definately stay here again in the off season.

They gave us a room with an old fashioned room key that we had to pay $5.40 for because as the front desk clerk said "people steal the keys all the time". No concern for your safety except for the fact that they also gave you a dead bolt key that only locked from the inside. Elevators were damp and smelled. Our room door appeared to have been kicked in at one point because the door jamb was broken and the door did not close..hence the need for a deadbolt key. Of course when you left the room you had to leave the door open I guess because it wouldnt close. The room smelled immediately like urine, there was garbage in the cans from the last visitor, the bureau which was wall mounted was hanging off the wall as was the bathroom vanity. The tub was filthy, room chair visibly dirty and greasy. We immediately left and told the front desk clerk who offered to have maintenance fix the door...ok.. I told her this wasnt a maintenance while we wait issue because the door jamb was broken and needed to be replaced. She offered us a choice of 3 other rooms...not beach front of course, which is what we paid for. This hotel is a bait and switch scam. They get you to book beachfront and then because they know it is a nasty unfit room, that you'll switch so you dont lose your money. She even said that the only thing they could do was offer us another room so we couldnt try to get our money back because she had fulfilled her part of the reservation. There was no way we were going to stay in this hotel. If you dont clean one room and dont know where the keys to the rooms have gone then how can we feel safe. I plan to report this hotel as far as I can go. This is what they consider a $120 oceanfront room!!! We drove home that night and skipped our night on the beach.

Room Tip: Rooms are not clean and at best this is a run down tenament
