A BAD experience
I would not recommend for anyone to stay here as an overnight guest. If you must, just get a day pass. The rooms are subpar and cramped, very few amenities to speak of or worth mentioning. After seeing my room I wanted to leave. The management would not refund my money and became very hostile and nasty. It’s just not a friendly place to stay and they are all about getting your money. Poor customer service, there’s no need for such poor treatment of people trying to enjoy their vacation. I would never return to this place.
GO AT YOUR OWN RISK! To get to this beach you must climb an EXTREMELY treacherous and narrow path up a high, jagged, volcanic-rock cliff that separates the small beach from the larger one next to it. I am not aware of any other way to get there. It is VERY dangerous for older or unfit men or women. I suggest wearing hiking boots or water shoes if you must go up there. DO NOT TRY TO CLIMB UP WITH FLIP FLOPS it's suicide!!!! I would even bring gloves if you don't want cuts on your hand from grabbing the SHARP volcanic Rock as you ascend. There's only one way up & down and it's barely wide enough for one person. I saw a man bleeding from a fall and turned back, for me it was not worth the difficult trek, or risking an injury while on vacation; then dealing with stitches, broken skin, limbs etc. Not worth it just for the ability to go naked. If you go, bring a back-pack with LOTS of water, sunscreen, food, small umbrella and wear hiking boots while going up and down. Bring some kind of gloves that have a well padded grip. I wish they would create a safe way to get there, but then it would lose it's cash'e I suppose and get crowded. Anyway, you have been warned...
I would NOT recommend this place, ,It's poorly maintained and cleaned, I'd really be concerned about catching something...it's a total waste of money, left very disappointed on two occasions!
Sweet & Sour
Located on the East end, a good walk to the bars and action, Rent a bike if you stay here. NO parking onsite, you must walk about 4 blocks to municipal lot or use the limited space private lot they keep 2 reserved spaces at for $15-$20- per day. No hot tub anymore, that's history..., must have been removed at the writing of this review. The patio is pretty, but locked at 11:00, not sure why? Rooms are very small in general, Beds are creaky & squeaky; the whole house will know you're having sex! Little to no room to store clothing or luggage in the rooms-very tight, no desk & chair, a small TV awkwardly placed and hard to watch from bed. Pillows and linens were adequate but I did not get a restful nights sleep as the mattress was too firm. Breakfast was nice and consisted of Granola, yogurt, fresh fruit, coffee, Orange juice, and fruit & nut bread. second floor bedrooms share bathrooms. AC units were hard to program, noisy and visibly mildewy. Fridge in the room was nice to have but the condenser made too much noise and I would have unplugged it if I didn't have drinks in it. If you are a heavy sleeper who is not particular you will be fine. If you like more space and comfort, it's not for you. Hosts were overall helpful and friendly, one of them rarely smiled and always looked preoccupied. Soap & Shampoo are in liquid form and in containers on shower stall walls, if you prefer a bar of soap, bring your own. I would only stay there again if I were in a pinch and would much prefer a small cottage or studio for my next visit.
I don't like their mandatory coat-check policy in the winter months, sometimes you just want to keep a jacket on....very unfriendly door staff , pretty dead on a Friday night at 12:30 this place used to rock in the 80s and 90s, I guess everyone is hooking up with apps...which have killed the bar and club scene. That's why it surprises me to see restrictions and rules like this which turn people off...good luck, I'm sure MIT will eventually buy the building and close this place down... As it is there is little to no parking, it's impossible to find a space. so I never come anymore
I enjoyed visiting more than staying
Get a Day Pass during the warmer months and enjoy the pool and eye candy. This is not the Parliament House, or CBC so don't expect that kind of atmosphere if that's what you're looking for... better to stay on the strip otherwise and enjoy Vegas. Rooms are 2 star
Cold and Sterile
I stopped in on a recent visit to PS to see this very small Inn. It does look freshly remodeled with a few bright orange umbrellas scattered by the pool. There was one person sunning by the pool on a cell phone otherwise it was very quiet. But honestly it does not have much charm and one of the Hosts who I spoke to was rather cold and uninviting when I stopped in for a quick tour for a future stay. He just said "go on our website" offered no tour of the grounds (perhaps because there weren't any) I don't think I'll be staying here. It also felt like the hosts were intrusive about the comings and goings of guests as their office was right in front of the pool. It just did not feel cozy...
