"Rom 232 on 2nd floor is a great size room with King size bed, close to stairs and elevator"
"I do not recommend this hotel"
"there are only 5 floors - most haunted room is 501"
"This is an older hotel so the rooms are a little smaller. We stayed in a suite for a little extra room."
"if you want a gulf view try to get 3rd floor or higher. The second floor gulf view rooms are largely roof-view"
