This hotel could be great given the amazing location right by the beach and the friendly staff. Unfortunately, our room had a terrible smell (alcohol, sweat and smoke) and felt really dirty. When touching the chairs, hands turned out all greasy from the padded backs. We also had a cockroach in our room which was in for a real treat....

The first room did not have a chain and the deadbolt would not work. Called front desk and got prompt attention. Late so he could not fix, but they gave us another room with deadbolt and chain. Spring breakers probably damaged and it wasn't repaired yet. Clean room with average decor. Bed wasn't very comfortable, but the room was clean....

This is a great hotel with great service.Everyone was so friendly.This hotel is very well managed. The rooms are clean, very comfortable and the hotel location was perfect. The beachfront bar and grill is an added benefit with good hearty food and good service. We will be back !!

Over-all, it was a great place to stay. Could use a little more TLC in the rooms. Sliding doors need cleaning, refigerators need to be replaced and the shower curtains need to be replaced. All the staff was very nice. Continental breakfast is just that.

If are a spring breaker this is a great spot, its a little away from the hotspots but that can be nice when you want to relax. You can always take party shuttles down here which are only 5$ . We were able to have people in our room, unlike a lot of hotels, in which you have to show...

My wife and I read mixed reviews on the place before booking. We were put in this room on the first floor with the most amazing view of the water that I have ever seen. We were at first only in there long enough to change out of our traveling clothes. It was not until we returned that it started...

room was shabby, beds very uncomfortable. Internet service limited to lobby on your own laptop (no laptop? no service!) Conveniently located right on the beach, but nothing else good to say about this place.; you could definitely get better value for your money (even at other By the Sea locations)

Stayed here one night before flying out the next morning. Got a great off season rate. A bit hesitant d/t reviews but really enjoyed it. Yes, the rooms have junky carpet and the hallways are old and stained but you can't beat the sunset, closeness to the beach, and white sand. Rooms have personal balconies. The pool is a nice...
