I drove past this hotel multiple times at night unable to find it in the dark as it is completely unlit an set back in the shadows. The power in the room mostly came from a single extension cord. But besides this the room was acceptable for the price and the staff were polite and welcoming.

Close to the beach but in need of an upgrade.

Cons: Most of the room is in urgent need of a renovation.
Location: Location is good and close to amenities and beach
Good position to walk to the beach. On a very busy street and also very noisy. Bathroom needs an upgrade and the place is very dated.
