Okay for the money

The room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was free but with limited choices of cereals, rolls, donuts, bagels, waffles, coffee, juices, but no fruit or eggs. The "heated" pool was very cold until the 6th and 7th days of our stay, and then was only tolerable. We were told the heater was broken. The hot tub was almost too hot at times. The mattresses were firm but caused us to awake with minor backaches. The rooms could use better sound proofing. We liked the location because we drove on the beach daily and the access point was only a fee miles away. Hotel was also within easy walking distance to the Turtle Center. There is a liquor store less than a block away. We would stay again just because of the value.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Buy the monthly park access pass from the park office south of the causeway before heading to the state beaches. You can only buy single day passes at the beach and park entrances. $5 per day or $23 per month after taxes.

So so hotel

We selected a room close to beach access but the walkway was so narrow that people had to jump our cooler to walk in the opposite direction. It was easier to drive to beach access points. The room was clean but the continental breakfast was a big thumbs down. There was a long line for food and not a good variety. I'm not a picky person but we had to leave and grab breakfast somewhere else so we could make it to the dolphin show on time. Do not get this hotel for the continental breakfast.

weekend trip!

They room was great roomy and clean, loved that it was located near the beach. The only down side was the pool area...it was super crowed and filthy. Aside from the pool area this is a great hotel for the location and price! We're willing to stay there again!
