The back door was broken and would not lock. They used a stick to lock it. Coffee pot didn’t work. Bathroom was moldy. Homeless living in the parking lot. Noisy neighbors on both sides. “Working” girls in and out all night. Very bad experience.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Great price for how close it was to the beach but overall, no vending machine(s), no laundromat, and staff were not very helpful. Had to love rooms 3 times. Water never got hot and when it did, it was scolding. And water nozzle in the bathtub was not properly connected to the wall sticking out a very noticeable inch or two.
