I wish the sign had said that! I was in town for my Son's wedding, and what should have been a wonderful quaint experience, quickly turned into the vacation from Hell.
On my recommendation the entire Bridal Party, relatives from out of town, and the Parents of the Groom, all booked rooms here.
The first impression was very disappointing, but we had high hopes that it would get better. Was not to be! Each step from the lobby to the room was upsetting. Unfriendly staff, wood floors that creak with every step, walls paper thin, showers that scald, extension cords everywhere you look, cold water tap in the bathroom that didn't work at all. Spiders inside the windows, airconditioning that was all but non-existent. Three Bridesmaids tried to blow dry their hair - and blew the fusses in their bathrooms.
The desk staff is only there during the day, so if a problem arises, which it did, there is no one there to help. They THREATENED to make us pay for rooms if guests left because of noise etc. however, they booked those guests in between the wedding guests, even though we have requested the rooms all be together, and warned them before booking that it would be a noisy group due to the occassion. They said not to worry, they had big parties all the time. Judy the Manager, complained to every single guest that crossed her path, and sent a threatening letter to every guest in the hotel, warning about noise, and that they would have to pay for lost revenue, even though we took up all but 3 rooms. Believe me, if we had had the opportunity, we ALL would have checked out and relocated. What kind of hotel does that? If they had a night staff, a lot of these problems would be avoided.
They are NOT, I repeat NOT on the Beach as advertised, the Beach is 1/2 mile away and you have to drive.
