Bathroom, parking, it just felt dirty. No breakfast
The location was excellent and it had a very 50s beach ambience
It had no coffee pot or air conditioner in the room. And little breakfast didn't start serving till 830
Walking distance to Boardwalk, downtown and Pier
Bathroom small and the recent remodel had over spray everywhere making it look "not" clean.
The location was very close to the beach
Service was poor checking in took ages, I hed to go back to the checkin desk on three different occasions to get my room card to work
The location is excellent--right by coconut grove. Check in was a breeze, the staff was cordial.
Smell of the room. Other guests were very noisy, drug paraphernalia found outside of the room in am as we were leaving for breakfast.
The location, and the office person was really nice.
The cleanliness was poor. The walls were dirty and the carpet was really stained.
I loved the location!! Pretty much a block away from the beach. I loved that I could hear waves at night while I slept with window open. Awesome price. Room was clean. Kind of smelled of cigarettes :d but got used to it quick. Nothing some Febreeze can't fix. Check-in/check-out was fast and easy. Free parking/wi-fi available.
The only thing that had caught me off guard was a fee for having extra people stay in the room. Even though the room was meant to sleep at least 4. I had a reservation for 2 ppl/2 queen size beds. There wasn't any warning about the fee on the website. So, I arrived with three friends and the clerk told me there was a $15 charge per extra person. Bummer.
The hotel employee who checked me in could hardly speak English properly and had a hard time processing my reservation. He also started shouting at other guests. At least the room was kind of ok, as long as you don't expect much.
We were very close to the boardwalk and downtown.
I wasnt to fond of the service. The rooms were also very small and not that comfortable for the price. It was over priced for sure.
Close to the beach..
When I first walked in the room there were peoples things eveywhere. Apparently the people staying there before checked out but left there stuff in the room. Had to wait an hour till the room was cleaned. The room smelled bad. There was no remote for the tv. The carpet was extremely dirty. There was no ac. Which is fine but the windows had no screens on them and someone could just reach in grab something from that window.
Fridge and telephone did not work.
