This resort is no resort. It sucked. The photos are VERY deceiving. I took true photos of this resort. The rooms are shacks. There is no beach at all. Scorpion in the bathroom. Front door did not lock. We ended up leaving as soon as we saw the room. Dead fish everywhere. Smelled so terrible. Money wasted. When trying to... More

If you travel thinking in a camping adventure, is not bad, but is not fair at all that you pay a hotel fee, for what we found there, not beach at all, ocean view, but impossible to get into the water, not bathroom near to the pool, so you have to wait until you do the check in, to use... More

Very small room. Old, needs updating terribly. Cracked and missing tile in shower. No pressure shower sputters water out in all directions. Not given any soap. Pool was ok but small. And they call this a resort and charge you a resort fee of $12.50 a day. Never again. Find another hotel. Room is so small you could not have... More

The first room was awful. The door was partly off the hinges and you had to slam it just to shut it. The room itself was so small. There was no room for a suitcase at all. There was a double bed (we had requested a king). We were moved to an "upgraded" room that had two double beds. The... More

you have to walk a bit down the road to check in. Dirty sheets upon check in, towels are tiny! No water for the first few hours, and then terrible pressure! The a/c worked, in fact there was only one temperature...freezing! The staff was over the top pleasant, but that does not make up for dirty sheets and no water.

Needed a place to lay our heads and everything else was booked. Our room was what I expected looking at the exterior of the building. Plumbing was backing up by the time morning came and the office was closed so we couldn't report to anyone. I wouldn't recommend staying at the this location, the owner's other two places might be...

I recently booked and attempted to stay at what I believed and was represented as an Old Keys experience property??? We will start with the fact that the pictures online do not represent the property and as a result mislead your expectations. From the point of arrival at the property it was easy to see how dated and run down... More

We selected this online but when we arrived it did not fit what we were looking for. I was ok but a little old and of course we thought it was a little more modern than what we expected. It is a economy older motel, but not what we wanted. It turned out fine after all. We spoke with the... More
