Without a doubt the most disgusting hotel I've ever stayed in. Everything about it is sketchy feeling... Super old building that's in need of a total rehab, not to mention extermination. Newpoint Apartments shares this building with Castle Beach Condominiums and something called "Design Hotel" which appears to be a hotel company that books exclusively out of Europe, hence there is no signage on the exterior, so good luck finding it.
I stayed here only 2 nights, thank god, with my Dad and Sister. The first thing you notice when entering the lobby, besides the sickening aroma of fast food and mildew, is that all of the fluorescent lights constantly flicker, setting a mood of class and sophistication. There are different front desks in different areas for each business which is confusing and after checking in we rode up to the 11th floor on the jankiest elevator I've ever been in. The hallway presented another foul combo of scents, this time bleach and enchiladas. The doors to the rooms all had different signage. Some where metal numbers, some ceramic or plastic plates, some were generic stickers, ours was half sticker - half hand scrawled sharpie. Inviting to say the least.
The whole reason we booked this room was because we needed three beds, not easy to come by and although they promised three twins we were given one queen and a twin bed with a trundle that looked and felt like a coffin. All beds were covered in dirty, mismatched sheets and blankets. We also had a "kitchen" which was essentially a sink and microwave directly outside the bathroom and a "dinig room" - an old wooden table attached to the wall, with no chairs, naturally. The bathroom wasn't terrible, but had its share of rust stains and chipped porcelain. The room was also at about 58 degrees with the AC blasting when we arrived. We turned it off immediately but somehow the room remained an ice box the entire 48 hours we were there. Bring a jacket and wool socks. The ceiling in all areas was chipped and peeling and in need of serious repair. And to top it all off every night at around midnight or I'd assume as soon as your turn the lights off, there was a full on cockroach family reunion in the middle of the "kitchen" floor. Roach moms, roach dads and several roach babies all scurrying around looking for food. A welcomed sight when you turn the lights on to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, even better when you're sleeping inches from them on the floor in the trundle coffin.
The rest of the grounds were just super random and weird. There's a creepy mini mall underground with a bunch of travel agencies and a convenience store, and just below the pool there's a "Turkish Bath" that wreaks of mold and STD's. In case you're wondering what kind of scary things happen in their jacuzzis they actually provide a live spy cam allowing you to see exactly what's taking place. The pool and pool area are huge, but with only about 30 chairs which makes no sense. Good luck getting one. They also don't monitor its use so at 11 pm there was a loud group of people enjoying it with bottles of beer and liquor. On the plus side it has direct access to the beach which is great.
The area is a bit sketchy and you can't really walk to anything besides other hotels here but even that is a welcomed change of scenery after 24 hours here. There's a restaurant in the lobby that's comparable to Denny's on a bad day. We ended up walking next door to Lola's for dinner which was decent and I took a field trip on the bus to Walgreens to kill some time and clear my nose of the constant offensive smells emanating from the building.
One last story: upon check in we had asked for two keys since there were three of us and were told they'd have to spend some time locating a copy since they're old school metal keys. I came back in the morning and asked a new gentleman for a key and without even questioning who I was the desk guy said sure what room number do you want and just handed me a key. Clearly I could have said any number and probably gotten a whole new room which would have been smart.
In summary AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS. For all of the luxurious amenities described above my dad threw down over $500 for our two hellacious nights here which blows my mind. If it wasn't the day after Christmas we would have immediately left but our only option would have been over a grand and I would have had to share a bed with my sister which is creepy.

First - the valet takes FOREVER so if you're trying to get anywhere, give an hour extra time for valet to get your car. You can't get it yourself. The place is split into two hotels/condos and smells like stale cigarette smoke. You have to pay a cash deposit for a key to the gym. They clean your room every other day. You must take out your own trash.
The view is nice. Wish I would have celebrated my boyfriends bday elsewhere.
