Poor 2.0
Not worth it at all
I don’t know where to start, I’ll start with the positive.... staff is friendly and location is two blocks from the beach. Everything else is negative. The hotel is very, very old. The pictures look too good compared to the reality honestly. The rooms are extremely dated, the beds are horrible. You have springs sticking out of the mattress and the rooms are dirty. See pictures attached. I would think they would at least change the blankets, I’m not surprised if they are as old as a hotel. The breakfast sucks, everything seems reheated and nasty. There is no fruit at all not many options. The WiFi in the room on the second floor is non existent. If I wanted access to the Wi-Fi I would have to sit outside in the hallway.....all this for $150 a night. No thank you, will never stay here again.

Horrible Service
as we were walking into the hotel we asked the front desk clerk if there was breakfast in the morning for guests, "JANE", immediately with an annoyed face and loud mean voice without yet answering the question on the breakfast start to tell my husband he needed a wristband, where is your wrist band, she looked at me and my children and pointed to us and continued very loud and rudely to tell us we need to wear our wristband now I am going to charge you $10.00 each, I tried to explain we were just arriving at the hotel and I would get them, and I asked why she was still yelling and being rude. she would not let me speak and I asked her to please stop treating us in that way, I tried to explain it was a simple question and I did not appreciate being treated that way, "JANE" proceeded to tell the other clerk to check us out, we were leaving. I said to JANE, I WILL leave because I did not pay to stay somewhere where I am being yelled at and humiliated in front of strangers and my young children but I want a refund. JANE stated we would get a refund but leave. JANE refused to give me her name or the other clerks' name saying I didn't need it. I asked to speak to a manager she said they don't have one. I asked to speak to someone in charge she said SHE was and she did not want us there. SHE not only ruined our mini vacation, upset my family and humiliated us I have yet to receive a refund, Jane states it was that should return my money. I will NEVER EVER return

Fair 4.0
The parking lot was full at night. There is a club behind the hotel that was taking over the guest parking lot and the staff couldn’t do anything about. It was frustrating driving around for hours to find a parking space. The AC on all the 3rd floor wasn’t working and our rooms AC wasn’t working either. The shower curtain had 2 openings in the bottom where water was coming out when we showered. I was afraid one of us could slip.

It was a very nice stay
When we arrived, our reservation had apparently been cancelled. I immediately became worried and thought I was gonna have to find another hotel or would have to re-book my room. Fortunately for me, That did not have to happen. The staff immediately saw the error and fixed it. They had to rebook my room but still honored my deal. I was happy. They gave me my keycard and I was on my way to my room. As I was leaving, I believe it was the manager, wished us a comfortable experience and let us know exactly where the beach was. It was very thoughtful of her. I found my room and was very satisfied. It was clean upon entering. The hot tub was amazing, bathroom very spacious and bed comfortable. Yes, people have stated, it does seem outdated, but it does not take away from the experience. It was very cozy, extremely quiet, and super relaxing. The pool was nice. I enjoyed a nice relaxing swim and some time under the night sky. There were some birds that screeched pretty eerily which scared us, but it definitely added to the natural experience. I was one with nature per say. One bad thing about this hotel is the number of channels on the televisions. It’s about 20-25 channels that are available. It was a bit bothersome, but I was able to watch Thursday night football and some tv shows so it didn’t really bother me. Overall, This is a wonderful hotel and the price is perfect for those who are frugal. I loved my stay at The Inn.

The guy at the front desk had a lil bit of an attitude, but I think it was from another guest being a bit unreasonable before me. Either way that wasn’t my fault and he should of not let it affect the next guest. The woman who was also at front with him was very pleasant and offered my dog a treat which he gladly accepted! Breakfast was good! Cleaning crew was amazing and polite! Location not too shabby. Would probably stay again.
