The room is old and not updated.

  • 1 of 5

The room doesn't look like the pictures on the website. It's very old and outdated, causing it to be nasty looking. Only enough hot water for 2 people to take a shower. I will NEVER stay there again! You do not get clean towels each day unless you use the coin laundry on one of the other floors. The building was decent but our room hasn't been updated in a very long time, especially the kitchen. Stains on the furniture and bedding, gross! The doors (bathroom and entrance door) were sticking and hard to open/close. The commode is very loud. The bathroom needs an exhaust fan! I have real pictures of the room if you are interested.

Decent room with a view

  • 3 of 5

We elected to stay at this unit for a short stay while in town for a dance competition. There were other more expensive options but we were looking for the best deal in the area since we wouldn't be in the room much. You get what you are willing to pay for. Considering the prices for hotel rooms and other vrbo units in the area, the value is good but don't expect luxury.

Proximity to the beach was awesome. The building / room is dated. The kitchen has a very old (1970s maybe?) all in one sink, stove, oven, frig unit that clearly the frig went out decades ago and is now a storage area. There has been another, larger frig unit added to the unit that worked fine. As for the stove/oven, we didn't use them so I'm not sure if they were any issues with their functionality. Kitchen utensils/plates/pots/etc appeared to be stocked decently but we didnt use it so can't be sure.

Being a studio, this is more of a hotel room feel but we knew that going in. The a/c worked great. The beds were decent. The bathroom is TINY! But the water was hot. Towels were plentiful.

Could our family of 5 stayed there for a week? No. Way too small. But for a short visit it worked great.

Thank you!

PS not sure if anything can be done but the entry door sticks majorly. May want to address.
