Great location

The location is perfect, 1/2 block from the beach and close to dining, shopping and the A1A beach district. Decent value, rooms clean, beds kinda hard, but from our room perfect view of the morning sunrise and the Atlantic ocean. Staff was friendly and tried to be accommodating a few rough spots but desk clerk did what he could. Room did not have a coffee maker and hotel doesn't provide coffee until 930 am and we had to continually ask for more coffee. I'd stay again if I needed too. Location made the hotel.

Great Place for price and location

I had a great stay at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and it felt family run. The room was fine-- clean and nice enough, and the cleaning staff was very accomodating to any requests that we made. The location was incredible-- very close to the beach and some great restaurants/nightlife. The pools and facilities were also wonderful-- we especially liked the heated pool and the availability of outdoor grills for guest use. For the price, I'd say this hotel was an unbeatable value. I would definitely stay again and probably would upgrade to one of the two room suites instead.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Get one of the two room suites for only a few dollars more and hit the grocery store (a 5 min drive away) to stock up! Save money on food!
