Avoid this motel like the plague!
I can only speak for the motel facility. It's possible the hotel rooms were better. My family was in an efficiency in the smaller Esham's Ritz unit on the alley and a two bedroom, 2nd floor apt in the same building. This was the week of July 28 to Aug 4th, 2007.
Here's a list of the awful:
Poorly maintained interiors. Totally amateur repairs/installations.
FILTHY air conditioners - filters appeared not changed or cleaned since installation. I ended up with a bad chest cold and ear infection - and I *rarely* get colds. My niece's husband contracted pink eye - coincidence? *Maybe*.
Kitchen areas skimpy, very worn, with bad repairs.
Fridge in efficiency was tiny. Hardly held any food.
Toilet paper holders broken. No hooks in bathrooms.
Toilet paper resembled that gray paper they give first graders to learn to write on.
No place to hang wet suits or beach towels.
Skimpy towels, bath mat and wash cloths.
NO fitted sheets for the mattresses - only a flat sheet laid down like a table cloth on the mattress top.
Large can of ant spray on kitchen counter - almost empty. Possibly why I saw few bugs.
Installation of tubs appears to be botched amateur work with resulting mold from water damage around *all* the caulking. VERY YUCK!
OLD, and WORN OUT decor and furnishings.
I don't think they even washed our bathroom floor. I think they just turn on the vacuum cleaner and let it sit.
I recommend washing all dishes in bleach water and take your own pillow.
Our neighbors reported water pressure so low that they couldn't rinse the soap out of their hair.
Our hot water depended upon who was using it in other units.
On Friday nights, the bar crowd arrives. It gets *VERY* NOISY!
The first floor units are poorly soundproofed
Check your windows when you move in to be sure they weren't left open.
Someone stole beach towels from a second floor porch one night.
Air conditioner on porch in apartment caused the porch to be *freezing*
Pool is very tiny.
The 2 bedroom was spacious.
Linens appeared to be and smelled clean.
Staff were pleasant and helpful. I talked to one motel user and she said they moved them to another room when they complained about smell.
The patio has nice, new furniture and was a pleasant place to sit
Some of the parking lots for the hotel are generously sized and we had no trouble keeping our spots. I don't think the hotel was even half full, actually. Quel surprise.
Needless to say, we will never go back here and I do not recommend to anyone.
I can't say if the Hotel rooms were better. Be interested to see a review by someone who was in one of those.
