Last Minute Memorial Day Trip

The staff is very friendly and the beds are awesome. The room could have been cleaner, and since the hotel allows pets, there was constant barking at any noise in the hallway. I was surprised that there was no refridgerator or hair dryer in the room.

Great Stay!

Great hotel experience. Staff was prompt, friendly, and professional. Rooms were beautifully decorated and even the base boards were clean (though the calking in the shower could use some bleach). The pool was open until 11PM and even though we were in the pool before it opened the staff was friendly enough to allow us to swim and quickly provided us with towels. The balcony did provide a gulf view although it was at an angle and you also had a "great view" of the parking lot and pool.
