Cheap for a reason - Avoid - Jan 2008
The view is good from the higher floors if you're facing the ocean. There are new high rise buildings being built around the Aqua Marina, so the views are becoming more cramped. That's the only redeeming value the place has.
The rooms are tiny, old, dysfunctionally shaped like triangles, dirty/moldy, and have worn out furniture and counters from the 80s. There are no hotel services. The entire week that we were there in January 2008 only one elevator worked. One long term resident said that only 1 elevator has worked for 5 weeks now. For a 40 story building, this just isn't acceptable. The place was apparently built as condos, so even the 2 tiny elevators if working couldn't carry HOTEL LOADS of passengers. It might have even been iffy for a condo.
Staff could give a rat's behind about helping and even said "we're a low end hotel" in response to asking for a different room due to the moldy smell in ours.
All in all, a poor choice, even if cheap.
My advice, if you're here for spring college break, buy a couple air mattresses at WalMart and put a bunch of people in the room. It won't be any less comfortable.
