I am frequent traveler and often stay at moderate priced hotels. This hotel was "picked" through a travel website for a quick vacation and was extremely disappointing. True, it is on the beach, but this place has nothing else going for it. You better pray the weather allows you to use the beach, otherwise you will feel like a prisoner in this place. Never in my life have I felt more unwelcome in a "hospitality" environment. Staff is rude and unfriendly, nobody smiles. They must be oppressed workers. You will be nickel and dimed to death, including a $10 "refundable" charge for beach towels...but you check out the towel, and there is nobody around to return it later in the day. Room is old, crusty paint, musty smell, non-working fridge, broken door to outside shared balcony (used chair under doorknob for security). Creaky room floors are not level, carpet needs to be replaced, minimal furniture (how about a desk?), shower is disgusting. Hotel restaurant was completely empty for two days....open, just nobody to assist. And there are minimal restaurants or nightlife nearby to escape to and help dull the pain....just dozens of senior citizen residences. The whole place just felt shady, as other reviewers have stated. Upon checking out, I was looking forward to responding to the usual front desk question "how was your stay?", but they never asked. Why would they? Management realizes they will never have repeat customers.
