Great website, but it's false advertising. A review of Ocean Breeze Inn

I will say that the gentleman I made the reservations with was nice and welcoming, but I was and am very displeased with Ocean Breeze Motel. Within 20 minutes of checking in I checked right on out.

I've stayed in all kinds hostels with hostel prices. The Ocean Breeze MOTEL ranks down there with worst hostels, and I was expected to pay over $100/night.

The room was hot with no A/C and no screen on the window (bugs & robbers are not my cup of tea). Their was a ceiling fan but the pull chain was completely missing so it was of no use. The walls had been repainted without being patched, so holes and bald spots were all over. The bathroom counters had holes in them that someone had attempted to repair (poorly) and then painted over (in a different color) with what looked like, of all things, nail polish . The damage was quite noticeable.

The lighting provided by the 2 small lamps was poor and I had to pay a $5 cash deposit for the TV's remote control and the room key, which was a single key handed to me. No handy keychain, no room number, nothing; easy to lose.

When I attemped to make other sleeping arraingments using the phone I found I couldn't. After pressing "0" the front desk told me I needed to come down and make another cash deposit to use the phone.

My ocean view was a small patch above the roofs of neighboring buildings, the pool buliding echoed the loud screams of children and the front desk area was an office version of a junk drawer (which should have tipped me off when I checked in).

Needless to say, I returned to the front desk to check out and forfited 60 bucks for the "cancellation." (Is it a cancellation if I've already checked in? I arrived and found the facilities seriously lacking. I held up my end of the deal. It was the motel that faulterd.)

Now, days and phone calls later, my credit card has been charged rather than credited and an extra $110 was charged 4 days AFTER I left the motel.

Still waiting for $700 to be credited to my Visa.
