Verified Reviews of Coral Reef Inn & Suites

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Less than I expected."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Took three tries to get a reservation that would stick and each time the price went up. In the end, I had reserved the smaller room option but got larger/more costly and nothing else was available (nor were any other rooms available in town). It was dirty and smelled awful. The drapes were hanging half on their hooks and half off. Mysterious brown liquid dripped onto patio from roof. It wasn't worth half the price. The man at the front desk was rude and in my opinion hostile. I will say that the two front desk ladies I interacted with were pleasant and helpful. Because of these ladies I give it a three and not a two.

"Seen better but have seen worse"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The beds were comfortable clean down pillows, down comforter, the hotel is old, rugs were as described in other reviews, could use a good cleaning. We loved the location. We plan on staying again in December as we need to be in the area again. If you feel you must have a 4 or 5 star this place is not for you. If you looking forward to a good location, a clean bed, then this will work. I read bad reviews about the continental breakfast. Not true. We had a choice of 2 cereals, toast, pastry, yogurt, milk, orange juice, tea and coffee. I liked the little kitchen; again older appliances, but nice to have a fridge, coffee maker in room. Next time I will take paper towels. If you take a small sauce pan, fry pan and some paper plates and plastic utensils you could buy groceries and cook in you room if you so desire. A microwave is also available in the room. I heard and read so many bad reviews I was actually relieved when entering our room. I liked the deck off the kitchen as well. Also by going through your service we only paid $80.00 including all taxes etc. Do not expect the Hilton it is not. But better than a Motel 6 I stayed at in Oregon.
