good vacation spot

The hotel, was definitely not as expected since the way to the hotel was mainly industrial area. The stay,was good, the staff was friendly. The only complaint I have is there was a group of drunk people in the pool area, who were drinking alcohol in the pool area where there were kids.

We picked this place so I could go fishing. It was perfect for fishing and laying/swimming on the beach. However there was nothing around to site see or any nice restaurants in the town of Ruskin.

Wonderful Place from HOME!!

The hotel was great, my family and I enjoyed the entire room with no issues. Comfortable rooms, comfortable environment, very relaxing. Did not want to leave the room or the beach! Everything was located in one spot secluded from noise and the rest o the world!

Great escape

The secluded location was a plus. This hotel is attractive to both the fisherman and beach goers. One side is a naturalists haven and the other side includes a private beach.

LOOK ELSEWHERE!

where shall i begin? the resort as they call it is run by inattentive unprofessional teenagers who could not care less about accommodating anyone. we tried to check in early and were told to come by perhaps the room will be ready so we headed on over as a storm was brewing & filled out all of the paperwork and were then told we will call you on your cell phone. they called 5 minutes before standard check in time and the place was NO where near being booked. we headed to our room and walked down the filthy damp hallway now less than anxious to enter our room. upon full inspection of our sticky room we noticed that the shower liner was ripped and full of mold so we called the front desk only to wait & wait & wait for a replacement(one full day). the air conditioning was sporadic as well as the access to the internet. and finally one of the near by rooms apparently needed more work than ours so they had their maintenance worker address the room issues until well past 11:30 pm banging away. we were relieved to check out when we did ready to encounter another sleepy teenager who couldn't care less about our stay.
