2/10 Poor

The place has bugs!! Roaches on the walls and bed bugs ON the bed! AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS. We didn't even stay the night! We had just settled down after a day at the beach and I saw the bed bugs crawling on the bed in front of me. We noped right outta there and went home. Bathroom was microscopic and the sink was leaking on the floor.

Roach motel on Ocean Park
It was awful. I paid for 2 nights but stayed just one night. Pavilions should be on the DONT go list. Roaches and filth. Also, the door did not lock. I place a chair inside against the door knob to keep it closed. I pray I did not get bedbugs. I did not dare look under the sheets.
