3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service, amenities
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The hotel was okay it could of been cleaner and nicer for what we paid. The bathroom ceiling was peeling and the room had a smell. Also the room next to us was really loud. But we still enjoyed ourselves.

1/5 Terrible

Travelled with group
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This hotel is poorly ran and has literal grime and mold on both the showers and the AC unit. The air within the elevator and the hallway is whatever temperature it is outside. The staff working in the bar connected to the hotel were fighting outside at the hotel entrance or very clearly oogling women. The outside of the hotel smelled like urine and trash, and the bathrooms within the hotel lobby were poorly lit, unclean, smelly, and in need of bath tissues. Upon checking in we were told that because our booking was only 3 days the room would not be cleaned at all during our stay unless we requested it? The woman at the front desk on Friday 10/15 mid afternoon looked as if she wanted to be anywhere else but at work, had no positive greeting, ran through the details of our stay monotoned and was audibly annoyed when I called down within 3 minutes of seeing and cleaning the room MYSELF to let her know someone needed to come wipe down the room at the very least once again. I explained there were brown and black stains all over 2 of the 4 of our pillows in our room, and when I pointed out the dust and grime on both the air conditioner's vents and rear I was met with blank stares. The shower had ants, and the entire room smelled muggy and old. I took my own cleaner because of Covid and ended up turning one of their white towels black from simply spraying cleaner and wiping down the doorknobs, the remote, the fridge and microwave handles, and the sink.

The staff provided excellent customer service. I enjoyed the rooms with oceanfront balcony. The price is very reasonable. I wish there were more inside amenities for kids.
