1/5 Terrible

Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This property was filthy. The flooring was diplorable, carpeting in elevator areas were filthy. Furniture was dirty, and the accomodations were not kept up at all. We stayed one night and checked out first thing in the morning. I would recommend that this hotel have a complete makeover and powerwashing from the inside out. I felt like we had entered a 3rd world country. I would not recommend this hotel to any one.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The only positive I have for this hotel is that it is on the beach, it is relatively cheap for the area, and the bed was comfortable. Otherwise, this was a terrible hotel. The WiFi did not work for our entire stay even after the desk clerk told us it was fixed. When we followed-up, she told us to contact the repairman, but then she couldn’t find the phone number. The room was very dirty and in bad repair as was the rest of the hotel. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. I guess you get what you pay for!

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Property is dirty and needs major repairs and updating. Pool was dark green and filthy, shower was clogged and flooded not only the bathroom but the entire room. We called the front desk 20 times before someone answered. They said maintenance was on the way up right then. It took them over 3 hours to come. They stated there were no cleaning services due to Covid, so we had to exchange our towels in the facility laundry room. The guy working there was obviously on drugs. Front desk staff was slow and showed no concern for any issues. We were one of two people in line checking in and there were two clerks at the desk. Someone called with a question and she told them to call back in 45 minutes because they were “super busy.” When checking out early there was only one front desk girl with her kids on the desk and one of them kept repeating “fu**” over and over. We couldn’t even open the balcony door let alone sit on the balcony because marijuana smoke blew straight into the room 24/7. We stayed 2 nights until we found another hotel to stay in for the rest of our vacation.
