A Pleasant Stay...

We wish the restaurant lounge would have been open. We liked being right on the beach. The lazy river was relaxing, but the indoor pool was too chilly and the outside jacuzzi was too HOT! Overall we enjoyed our stay.

We recommend that you drive to northern shopping destination unless you are prepared to walk 30 or more blocks. However there were a few convient mini marts close by.

NOT A FIVE STAR RESORT

The location was great. The dining room was only open for breakfast, but it was very good, and priced right. Swim in the pool early in the day as the water becomes cloudy later. Phone use was extra. No note paper in the room, and nothing to write with. Staff was very friendly, and the rooms were clean. Enjoyed our stay. Rooms were a bit on the small size, with no area for food prep in the efficiency room. Very quiet and private.

Great escape from reality weekend

Any dealings with the front desk personnel were not very friendly. It appeared as I was more of an inconvenience than a guest in their hotel. However, had an issue with the air conditioner and the maintenance staff was quick to respond and resolve the issue.

Good Hotel But Overpriced

Staff friendly. Hotel needs more pools, very crowded and over chlorinated. Couldn't swim in the indoor pool because of the overwhelming smell of chlorine. Hotel was decent. Beds not very comfortable. Housekeeping always there around 12, but never visited my families room. A few minor changes could make this hotel a lot better.

Decent hotel for the price.

All and all the hotel was alright, nothing to get excited about. The hotel is right in the heart of approximately 30 other hotels so it is not excusive at all. You can tell the entire place has certainly seen better days. It has that ballpark restroom feel, everything was cleaned at some point but more of a once over not really a deep clean. Great view, our room looked right over the ocean as promised. Although, if you want a good spot on the beach you have to get out there pretty early because a company sets up chairs and umbrellas all along the beach and "rents"/rips people off for the day. I beleive we got what we paid for, but I will never be returning to the hotel again.
