Unfortunately I won this bid on Priceline - at a horrible price too! $95 a night for this dump. I made the mistake of lowering my star level as I was getting desperate to book 3 rooms in the summertime for a family trip.
It is so outdated and dirty. Our room had a soaking wet old, musty carpet. Like you couldn't even take your shoes off it was that wet. Thankfully they moved us to another room the next night. We saw them later set up a fan to dry it out. The other two rooms had a newer carpet but it was still very outdated with gold fixtures, etc. I can sometimes over look outdated but not when I'm paying $95 a night in Erie, PA! I just returned from Grand Cayman and spent $100 a night for the Marriott!
The only positives are that the staff were very friendly and accommodating, the breakfast buffet for $5 was not too bad and it is close to the beach area.
