Great vacation

Everything was good except our key cards never worked, we had to get new ones at least twice a day. Staff was great except one who stood outside smoking and on her phone while I waited five minutes for her to come inside and she continued her conversation for another two minutes not even acknowledging me.. Quite annoying. The live music at calypso was great nightly.

terrible for booking!

Called on phone and booked our stay and it was terrible, they lost our reservation in system. Had a 2 hour wait before manager was able to get us in room. Glass door was stuck, had guy spray stuff on it, which made us leave door open to air the smell out room. Asked for handicap room, was put on 8th floor at end of hall, not great when you are handicap and cant walk!! Asked for towels, finally got them after we shared beach towel to take showers. Just terrible visit.

Pretty Good

It was a decent hotel, our room had a nice view of the pool where can just walk in and out from while being able to see the nightlife at the bar/grill at our hotel. My room was bigger than I expected which was nice. My view of the ocean could have been better, but my overall stay was good.

decent for a short stay

Hotel location is great. Staff was very friendly and willing to help with anything. Room was decent. Nothing fancy but, not too bad for the price. Parking is located around the block from the hotel which is inconvenient if you have a lot of bags or children. Would be ok for a short stay or minimal people...Unless you don't mind walking back and forth to your car. They do offer valet or you can unload your bags there if you prefer, which is what we did, but if you forget something etc.., it's a block away. DO NOT BOOK WITH LIMITED VIEW! Our first room we got was booked on the phone and the rep chose limited view and when you looked out the window all you could see was the roof to the top of the restaurant connected to the hotel. To move to a different room we had to upgrade and pay an additional fee, which we were not too happy about but, did and it was way better. Overall, not too bad but, not the best.

Yuck

We were put in a smoking room, but were too tired to argue. The patio door was broken but we were able to secure it after slamming it shut. There were no cups for water, no coffee pot or cups, and one tiny bar of soap. The beds were ordinary, but the place is old, old, old. The bathroom was new and the location was awesome. The furniture looked like it was from the 1950's. The staff was very nice, though.

Not a family hotel!!

One of the worst hotels I've stated in. The extremely loud bar played vulgar music until after midnight. My children had to listen to this garbage even though the balcony door was shut and TV on. We stayed a total of 3 nights and only got to use the pool once since beer cans, cigarette butts and other items floating in the pool. I contacted the front desk twice about this and was told well the cleaner didn't show up. The pool is also directly beside the bar. So there is no privacy there and all the drunks get to stare at you. Also contacted the front desk multiple times for towels and no one came. Do not stay here if you have young children. Several people were canceling there reservations because of the bar. I was stuck there because orbtz wouldn't refund my money to get another room. Said that money could be returned on the card in 5 business days which didn't do any good when you are already there and you live 5 hours away. Will never stay here again or use or orbtz
