Okay, so my husband and I stayed in the infamous room #14 that the previous reviewer spoke of (July 2006) and some of the response by the owner is a complete lie (I thought one of God's ten commandments was Thou shall not Lie?). Anyway, what the person said was true. The room smelled, the bed was absolutely uncomfortable (so much for a new one, like the owner stated? This one was not new!!!!) and unsanitary! The bedding itself had spots of blood or something all over it. They did redo the bathroom, but the ceiling was done w/unpainted wood? That's smart considering you are near the ocean and your establishment looks like a decent amount of rain/wind would wash it away. And the doors and bathroom were repainted, but with a nice amount hair with it - they may have paid the cleaning crew extra for that luxury! The bathtub was so gross and had so much rust - it had toilet paper stuck to the inside of it to the rust underneath the spout - the shower curtain had so much mold on it! (Don't get me started on the showerhead - it was had so much rust/calcium build up on it that it was turning blue - yeah, the original color of it is off-white) The toilet wouldn't flush. The t.v. was mounted to the wall? Who does that anymore? Yes, they had a coffee maker! The thing is so old, it looked like it was going to fall apart when you tried to open it to put the 1 coffee package they give you in it. Yes, they have microwaves and mini (very mini) fridges in the rooms, however, it is not a "kitchenette" as one of the amenities is listed. In addition, the a/c did not work properly at all so that was just another lie told - they leak so bad the have to put sand buckets underneath them - they look like they have been there since 1986 (they are the old brown ones with the paneling!!!). Oh yeah, 1 more thing, my husband and I almost got towed because they don't have enough parking for their guests!
In addition, I don't judge anyone's religious beliefs, but give me a break with the quotes on the marquee's, etc. So do you think just because you obviously don't read much of anything else than the bible and quote the a couple of paragraphs that makes up for the fact that you lie to people about your craphole?
Anyway, long story short - do not stay here, unless you were like my husband and I and just went down there to fish. So, we smelled anyway for the better part of the weekend and we were never in the room.
