Price is same as other hotels that are newer or remodeled on the beach. Location only good thing. They need to overhaul the entire building.

Liked: Cleanliness
The room was very loud and felt like a prison. And why a couch in a tiny room that just faced the bathroom door? There was no tissue, the parking lot was nearly empty, yet it felt like they gave us the worst room possible.

Disliked: Amenities
Very basic accommodations, and the rooms are past due for a refresh/remodel. The beds weren't very comfortable and the bathrooms and showers were poor. Really the only reason to stay here is the proximity to the beach.
