Good 6.0
Old hotel, liked having a kitchenette but the stove was really dirty on the inside. The refrigerator leaked water onto the floor. Rooms need updating-very old wall paper, mattress needs replacing. Hardly any outlets to plug in phones, devices. Check in/out was friendly. Short walk to the beach.

Fair 4.0
Never again
We recently stayed at a five star hotel for less money tan this dump. We could hardly walk around the end of the bed the room was so small, the shower had peeling paint, the framwork from an old door and mold. No a/c and windows that wouldn't lock so we could leave them open for air.

Pillows were a little firm. Small rooms. Not much around, but the beach is down the street which was nice.
David, usTrip with friends
Very good 8.0
best of both worlds
Actually had a good time here. the small seaside town offers maybe a lot more, but the price compared to what you get is good. Cheap stay and friendly service, the property gives a good feel. ok, you can still hear the cols road, but the sea is in walking distance. ok the bed was soft, and maybe could be better, but the room had absolutely all we needed on a road trip. some convenient shops and restaurants close and it is sure worth the stop here.
