Despite the tropical storm that caused major flooding and issues, the hotel staff was working hard to restore all amenities. Other than that, staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was and ready when I arrived and during my stay.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I spent eight nights at this hotel and enjoyed it immensely. The hotel is seconds from a pharmacy, barbershop, spa, corner store, food, and of course the beach and boardwalk. The restaurant and café were very convenient with good coffee and friendly staff. I didn’t need much from staff, but they were helpful when needed and quickly help me get laundry done at a very affordable price. My room was also cleaned every day and I very much appreciated it. The hotel is by a major street but I slept without issue. Thank you for everything.
