Just what I was lookin for

This place was just what I was looking for! A spur of the moment overnight family trip on a budget, couldn't of been better. It wasn't the snazziest of places, it had a bit of a musty smell, but opening a window fixed that. It had a microwave, fridge, free wifi, tv and a pool, great when traveling with kids. Definitely would recommend and will be staying again.

book it

My boyfriend and I had a 3 & a half hr drive ahead of us, it was already getting really late and we were going to be too tired to drive back home from dropping off my in law at the TJ airport. I was comparing hotels but when i read the reviews this one got (which were mostly good) and I was getting a really good deal I decided to book it with them. I liked the hotel because it was near everything (beach, downtown, sea world, etc.), the room was really nice got the kitchen suite and was more than what I expected for a 2 star hotel, and the staff were very helpful/friendly. The only down side was that the parking lot was full and had to park next door at the next hotel. But overall it was a great night stay and definitely coming back to this hotel in the future.

good place

my stay here was good. friendly staff, clean room, nice size, continental breakfast, all necessary amenities included. only downsides are that there is not enough parking spots and there were several little fruit flies on the underside of the clean hand towels by the sink...other than that, it's a good place to stay and i'd stay here again.

Okay but needs a little help

We stay for three nights the beds were okay the breakfast was good and the staff were very helpful. Only problems we had where the hotel was under construction hard time finding parking and the construction started super early so if you want to sleep in forget about. Over all I would stay again if you are trying to save money
