Cheap hotel, cheap people staying, cheap.

Member Rating 1 out of 5 by a traveler from on July 2, 2009

First of all, this is a cheap hotel. It's the only hotel that's within 3 blocks of the ocean AND under $100. Having that said, because it's a cheap hotel it's got a lot of problems. You really get what you pay for, and in this case I wished that I had just paid $30 more for hotels. In fact, I should have read Yelp's reviews that are more conflict free than a hotel reservation site. Noisy. Lots of noise. It's a cheap hotel and it attracts a lot of people that are cheap, and loud, and this is on a week day! I was trying to nap but there were so many kids in the pool. The floors are LOUD, as if wood would pop. The rooms are small but I don't mind that as long as there are amenities-- there's a small microwave and a frig which is pretty handy. The toilet... doesn't flush very well. Flush 3 times, and it should clear up. The bed is super soft, too soft actually. I don't weight that much but I sag when I'm on it. WIFI connection is good and that's probably the only thing that I thought was good. And the location. I mean, the location kicks ass. But that's what you're paying for, not the hotel. Overall, I learned my lessons-- don't trust online ratings especially those hosted by hotel search websites, that Yelp reviews are quite accurate, and you really get what you pay for.
