The hotel is a great location and has beachfront access. It is right on Gulf Shore BLVD near the 688 causeway. There are a couple of restaurants and bars across the street. A CVS is also nearby which is convenient. Room had a brand new ceiling fan which worked well. Front desk attendant was nice. The overall cleanliness of the hotel is very sub-par. The hallways look like an abandoned insane asylum with low tile ceilings, rusted sprinkler heads, and old wood doors. Some of the room number signs were faded or failing off. Upon entering the room we were greeted with a musky smell, but we proceeded to turn on the lights and investigate the room. Filters on the AC were actually clean, but in the vents there was mildew buildup contributing to the smell. The room had a door that gave direct access to the beach and shared back patio. The room furniture is dated and the "kitchenette" is original to when the motel was built. There is a metal sink with two burners attached which seems like a dangerous combination. The counters were a mustard yellow with duct tape holding it down. The kitchenette was mildly stocked with cups, plates, and flatware. There was also a mini-fridge and microwave. The television was a tube TV from the 90's. The comforters had some holes in them and there were only 3 small pillows per bed. If you wanted ice you had to pay for it. The carpet was a dark forest green, so you cannot see how much build up is really on them. The bathroom smelled like smoke as we think it was coming in from the unit next door. The bathtub was dirty and bathroom poorly stocked. We booked this last minute and mainly for the location, but would not stay there again. We read reviews ahead of time and expected it to not be great, but it was far below 2.5 stars. We brought Lysol and Clorox cleanup to be safe! Wish we would have packed sleeping bags to be honest.
View from the room was perfect. It was quiet and close to several restaurants Hardly any hot water.
Beach and ocean is beautiful Hotel need serious updating. I think the room were ok clean. But difficult to tell. Manager and front desk no professionalism.seems occupied when checking us in. Manager was rude to several guests. We were sitting on the lawn in front of our room watching the ocean and chatting , sprinklers turned on at 9:15pm and soaked every thing. We tried to reach staff of hotel, no one was available by phone or in person. Parking was very limited. We had guest trying to visit, no extra parking anywhere close to hotel. Will not return.
Location and beach were great. Plenty of hot water. Outdated and in disrepair. Room was clean, although furnishings were old and worn. "Resort" did NOT appear as in pictures! The room rate for the surrounding area was very low, but the rate for what you actually got was very disappointing. Would not recommend.
Loved the beach location. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. Strictly a beach, old Florida type room ,no frills. Loved that there was no smoking on the property. Walls were thin and you could hear your neighbor.
