I am not sure what the problem with the previous poster JohnTheBaptistNy had but I can assure people it is not that way at all. I was a first time customer and we will be returning next year. We stayed at this hotel I was room 114 and my parents stayed room 110 my stay was from March 11-22 my parents stayed march 11-march 30 and we had a very pleasant experience.
Is the hotel updated? NO but hey you are on the beach, we were pool side and the rooms were clean, bed were comfy. So what the furniture is not from this decade but how much time do you plan on staying in your room. We were safe and comfortable, anything we didn't have and needed they front desk had for us.
As for the greasy haired person working, most probably an exhageration since the entire time I was there the staff were clean and friendly. The manager was always on site early in the monring and late into the evening most days and also there on weekends. She was a very nice lady and also visited with customers around the pool. Everyone gets to know each other and it feels like a family.
All the cleaning staff were very friendly and if you needed something they got it for you. If this place is as horrible as John has stated then explain why most of the people who are there are return customers year after year. Everyone we saw there had been there at least the past 5 years some have been returning every year for the past 10+ years. We have allready booked our hotel for next year.
This year for St Patty's day the hotel oranized a party, hired a musician and did a dinner outside. Cornbeef and cabbage dinner and then it was asked for all the renters to sign up those who wanted to go and it was potluck we were asked to bring an appetizer or dessert or side dish whatever we wanted just to write it down. It was amazing. They had round tables set up for everyone and all the ladies were given green carnations, everyone contributed and it was a great time.
By the way my parents have been visiting this area for years and this was their first year there. They have said it is the warmest cleanest pool on the strip. The pool was amazing, so with the staff. Ihave no complaints.
As for the parking there is limited parking in front but there is a loading zone. If there are no spots available you unload your car take your stuff to the room and then move your car there were no issues. There is an overflow area for parking just two minutewalk up the street which was not a big deal and we preferred to park there most the time anyways. As for ancient keys? the keys are regular metal keys that most of us use on our doors at home. As for not leaving the door open. OMG everyone left their doors open all day and it was perfectly safe.
If you are a stuck up person who only ever frequents 5 star resorts and wants nothing but the best then this isn't the place for you. If you want something that is for an average family is clean and fun then this is the place for you. Its on the beach has a clean warm pool, staff and patrons are super friendly and it is inexpensive. Aboslutely give it 2 thumbs up.
