Great view of the gulf and walking distance to restaurants and bars. Rooms are not very sound proof and music/TV can be heard from surrounding rooms. Elevators are slow. Smoking is allowed near elevator and you have to walk through the smoke.

We had an excellent experience during our stay! The staff was very friendly and professional. We absolutely loved our room, it was clean and looked like it had been recently updated. We stayed in the King studio suite and we will definitely be requesting it when we come back!! The location was great, so close to everything! Nice clean beach,...

Our ocean view consisted of 75% wall and 25% ocean view. The staff was not friendly and thought the price was high for just an 'average' room. It is close to the beach which is nice. I wasn't happy with this hotel and we won't stay again. The restaurant in the inside is outrageously price me and not that good.

Awesome rooms right on the beach! Private beach, both indoor and outdoor pools !! Can't say enough about the friendly staff, clean rooms, fantastic pancake restaurant in the hotel. Walking distance to sea and suds or the pink pony. Only minutes to all the best souvenir shops. We will definitely be back!!

Was an average hotel. Little high on price for what you got. It is on the beach! I mean as soon as you get out the stairwell it was a matter of 20 ft then you were in the sand. It needed some maintenance and updating. When you look back from the beach to the hotel it looks a bit...

Older property but well kept. Good beach access at the property and very close to public beach and public facilities. At peak times parking is available but not necessarily convenient to the room. No free breakfast bu Pancake House integral to the property.

We arrived at the hotel late on a Wednesday and checked out on Friday, so it was a short stay. Our room was hot, cramped and uncomfortable (the AC was turned all the way down to 60 degrees and it was still sweltering in there. Also, the ice machine didn't work (and wasn't fixed after reporting it) and the phone...

This is no luxury hotel, but not a too basic motel either! In the middle of it. Very friendly staff, fabulous location at the beach and great ocean views from the room. Superb beach! (Downsides, although not very important: air condition system not very good, chlorine smell in room and hallways, motel atmosphere)
