Good experience

I've stayed at this hotel on three separate occasions and I've never had any problems. Everything is very clean and very comfortable beds. A few things that I don't like are: There is room service, but it's from an outside vendor. So, you need a minimum order amount to get it delivered. Not a big deal, there are plenty of restaurants in the area. The TV channel selection is very limited. I don't know if it's normal for Florida hotels, but they don't even have local sports channels to watch one of the many local sports teams. Also, this may sound like nitpicking, but the bathroom doors don't stay open. They are spring-hinged so the door shuts on it's own. Seems minor, but if you're in the bathroom getting ready, the door slams shut behind you. If you're sharing a room you can't have a conversation about plans while anyone is getting ready to go out (in the bathroom in front of the mirror) And I'm not exaggerating when I say it slams shut. It would actually hurt you if you were in the way when it's closing. I can deal with these issues because the hotel location is ideal for me. Other than these things, it's a very nice place to stay and the staff is very helpful. Overall, I'd say the little things make a big difference if the location isn't ideal for you. Honestly, you'd be surprised how irritating the bathroom door thing is until you actually have to deal with it.

Yummy House for Chinese food. Salt and pepper calamari is a must-have. Everything else is great too. Ask for the 3 for $20 menu!

Great night at the hotel

Had a great time at the hotel and the location was perfect, in walking distance from where I needed to be. The microwave and fridge were great. The room was very clean and nice service from the desk clerk. Did not get a chance to see housekeeping's job. The room was pretty comfortable, not a great view from my spot and the pillows seemed a tad small, but there were four of them at least. Clean bed and room. The cost seemed a little high to me, then again my budget ideals are pretty cheap, so honestly the price is probably fair for most people. Would recommend this hotel.

Great place to stay

The front desk staff was always available and very helpful. Rooms were clean and the breakfast included was very good. I enjoyed the fact that you could make coffee in your room or get it in the lobby 24 hrs. a day. Great value for the money. Would stay again.
