Was expensive for the quality. Piles of sand in corners. No coffee maker or ironing board and iron in room. No sheets, blankets or pillows for the pullout sofa. Only good thing was location. Was across the street from beach access and within walking distance of Shrimp Festival activities.

Big room but more or less a place to sleep and shower. Close to beach was nice. Just an older hotel. Free simple breakfast. The hotel was ok but for money I wouldn't stay again. It was more like a $50/night not $120!

The hotel is across the street from the beach, easy walking distance and great location for a budget friendly hotel. The ocean side has good views of the beach and the back had great views of the lagoon. The rooms were good sized and clean. All in all a good place to stay for the price.

OK - this is a 2-star, budget hotel so don't expect top-of-the-range rooms or facilities. BUT for the price it has a lot going for it. It is very close to the beach (if not actually on the beach as the name suggests) which is just across the road. It is opposite Bahama Bob's restaurant, a fabulous eating place in... More

It appeared to me that this hotel was once very nice. It once had its own bar and restaurant but both are now closed. My room was spacious and had a fresh coat of paint but the furnishings were dated and worn. The bathtub/shower caulking was mildewed. I would not stay here again.

This is our second time staying at this hotel. The last time was 2014 right after Spring Break. Both times, the rooms were clean. We had a king sized bed. They are slightly uncomfortable.

So maybe didn't read the reviews or description well enough, but from what we gathered, the hotel was on the actual beach as is the Phoenix, etc. However, once we arrived, we noticed that the hotel was instead across the road from the beach- which is no huge deal. Was given room 510, which is all the way on the... More
