This hotel was in a great location (one block from the beach, 10 min from downtown) and is good value for the price (at the time of reservation $50/night and the 6th and 7th night free). The rooms were very basic, with no phone, but with a TV (I don't know what channels were available because I didn't turn it on) and internet available. I was a bit surprised at the condition of the rooms - the lino was scuffed and scratched and the overall impression was that the room was old and rundown. However, everything was generally clean. There often wasn't hot water and the water pressure was a bit low, but it was adequate. The towels alternated between old, grey (used to be white), beach towels, and fluffy, white new towels. However, there was a nice sitting area on the porch/deck/walkway in front of the room and air conditioning in the room. Since I didn't spend much time in the room, except to sleep, change and shower, it was fine. There were some dogs in a pen across the alley outside my window, so the random barking at 3 and 4am wasn't the best, but this didn't necessarily happen every night.
If you're not concerned about what condition the room is in (as long as it's clean), this hotel is good value for money, with generally good service and a great location.
