Comfortable beds, Great Staff, Excellent View

From the start it went Great. I was arriving before my husband so I called the Hotel to add an extra night or two on (in my own room). I got Amber (WoW), she's the best. Even with Bikeobterfest going on she was able to Completely take care of everything!! Once I got there, the room was great. I did have a small issue on the 2nd day & maintaince was there in minutes to fix it. I was impressed how fast they responded especially with the hotel being so full. Then on the 3rd night fickle me decided to stay in my husband's room. Yay Amber again, she took care of the changes & was so Polite & professional. Not only was Amber great but Everyone there is Soo polite & nice. You only need ask & it's done with a smile. Nice little continental breakfast - I had my yougurt, cereal & banana just like home - Of course, they had more like coffee, tea, milk, juice, bagels, doughnuts & danish & it all looked good. I almost forgot the best part, inches to the beach & 2 adult pools & a kiddie pool - I used the pool by the parking lot & it was Very clean & water temp was Perfect. They give you pool towels which are a bit small but they give you enough of them. There's even a raised platform with beach chairs built above the pool area right on the edge of the beach so you get the ocean breeze - Loved it!!! We almost didn't stay because of the other reviews which would have been our loss. For the reviews that criticized this hotel a Hilton it is not but we Loved it just the way it was & I am not easily pleased, I need away from elevator & ice machine etc. The way this hotel is set up even rooms near elevator don't hear because there's not loud beeeep when the elevator arrives - Also Florida salt air gets to things & if you don't tell the front desk how do they know. As I said earlier, Maintaince was there Fast!! I gave it 5 stars even though is was not a High Priced Resort because in my eyes it's a Great little place. We will be back next year.

on the beach

We only stayed 1 night at the end of our vacation, for the money this place was awesome ! Front desk staff very helpful allowing us to check in very early and upgraded to ocean front on the 7th floor. The only down side i had is that the balcony attached to the next room and only had a 1/2 wall divider. Kind of creeped me out personally. out side of that i would stay there again

Older hotel, but kept up quite well.

Fantastic view of the ocean from the balconey. Continental breakfast could use some improvement. No restaurants within walking distance. Need more handicap parking spots.

beach getaway

Room had a wonderful ocean front view w/balcony. Average/ordinary room had a college/dorm size frig, microwave, small coffee maker, iron, and ironing board. Hotel has two nice sized pools and one kiddie pool, all located outside.

Great location and price

I booked the room last minute for a quick day at the beach after few days in Orlando. The staff was super friendly and even allowed me to check in a little early when I arrived before the normal time. The location is great. Right on the beach and close to the action. The room was average size and clean. I would definitely stay there again.

Nice place

The room was clean; dated but clean. The kitchen had no counter space and bath was small but overall a decent value. The location is great. We usually go next door to Perrys which has many more amenities. Overall a pleasant experience. We would go again.

Family getaway

I was happy to find out when we first arrived that we were allowed to check in a little early, because our room was clean. We got in our room to find out, it was anything but clean! The side of the fridge was all dirty, and there was hair in the sink and on the counter. We went back to get a different room, and because of the trouble,we were upgraded to an oceanfront room, and we had a great time. I would recommend this hotel, I just hope, the maids do a better job cleaning so the same thing doesn't happen to someone else!
