The proximity to the beach and restaurants
Free wi-fi, free parking, walking distance to restaurants, bars, and the beach. The room was clean, and brought a mini fridge and a microwave, which I really was not expecting for that price. Heck we've been in $125 a night hotels that won't give you that. I will definetely stay here again.
If the cleaning staff catches you out of the room, they will clean the room even if you are ok with the room as it is. That was a little annoying but it didn't take away from the rest of the experience. Overall the staff was great. I will recommend this place to anybody.
It was clean, that's the only good point.
Our check in time was 2pm, arrived to a sign on the door that said 'back in 5 minutes'. 15 minutes later I called the posted phone number, spoke with a man who said the attendant should be there and that he would call him. Another 5 minutes later the attendant arrived with his groceries! He then proceeded to tell me that check in was not until 3pm. I showed him our printed reservation that showed 2pm and the text message on my phone that said 2pm. He was still reluctant to check us in. 2 more patrons showed up to check in with the same text message on their phones. The attendant finally said he would see what he had available - after I told him my husband has a bad heart & needed to lay down. Finally got to our room - the air conditioner worked, but did not cool below maybe 75 degrees.
The fact that we were only there for one night.
This hotel was about as low as you can go; the owner/manager didn't care two hoots about the guests, the location was not good and I did not feel safe sleeping there.
