“Aging atmospheric dowager”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Once a happening place, now kind of a nostalgic piece of history - rooms are probably 30 - 40 years old - separate bungalows - old marble floors and dim lights and windows that open. There used to be huge outside dining area, now faded and closed. The restaurant still has that tufted burgundy naugahyde from the early Vegas days, and the restaurant could easily seat 200 in those booths and tables. I was the only one in there. Happy Hour indeed. Owner/operators, two aging brothers who ran this joint when it was hopping every night, now look tired and beaten, and wishing someone would come along and offer to buy the place. Also about a dozen beautiful RV sites with full services. The beach is a short drive away, and out there in the dunes was another RV site belonging to the hotel, long since shut down - with a lone trailer out there with a guy yelling "private property" just to keep company away. There is something very sentimental about the whole place - about an era coming to a close, crowded out by Motel 6's and Holiday Express. Rooms are cheap, and the restaurant food was terrific - they were so famous for there Crab Diablo, its actually on the Hotel sign, albeit faded to the point of being unreadable. But the crab dinner was spectacular.
