Recent guest reviews
L read all of the reviews and most said the place was clean and economical (which are my highest priorities). I was both. I also read the mattresses were very firm ...mine was. The wi-fi was virtually non-existent, so I read a book instead. The breakfast was fair. All that said, I'd stay again.
The hotel wasn't bad but wasn't good either. Needs a swimming pool for one thing. A bigger selection for breakfast. A better door reader to see u who use room key last in a certain area my daughters wallet was stolen and the machine to read who use there key last didn't work so didn't find out who stole her wallet. The location of the hotel was good in middle of town close to everything. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
1) The room did not match the pictures. There is no microwave or refrigerator, those had been removed "during renovation". 2) Our toilet leaked water out onto the floor the first time we used it, it was not floor mounted but wall-mounted, so the front desk said the plumbing has been a problem "since renovation". We asked for a new room and there the front door did not shut all the way, we had to weight it with a chair to keep it closed. 3) The rooms were both very damp, the floor was moist when you walked on it barefooted. The sheets and pillows were damp to the touch, very humid. 4) Not clean: One bathtub had foot prints in it and water running (not dripping) and it could not be turned off. We found socks and underwear in a drawer and tags from new clothing on the floor. As if the room had not been cleaned. 5) Management problems: We booked 2 rooms together, but they put on other sides of the hotel, "because the names did not match". We had two adults with different last names, one in each room, they said "next time reserve it with the same person in both rooms." 6) Location is not what we expected: we had to drive to the beach, the airplanes sounded like they were going to land on the roof, and the road noise kept us up all night. 7) The fire alarm went off at 4 am and when I tried to call the front desk the phone was dead. I called from my cell phone to find out it was a false alarm. In general, I have traveled extensively and I can honestly say I have never stayed in a worse motel. The room was booked 2 days before at over $125/night. Because it was late, and there were no other vacancies nearby we had to stay. We slept with our clothes on and left as soon as the sun came up the next day. Do not pay more than $50/night for this room.
The overall experience was great. The location was perfect. We were minutes away from the water park and the beach. There was great food and shopping right in walking distance. I would definitely stay there again.
Comfortable, clean, peaceful room. Very friendly staff. Conveniently located to fuel, food, highway.
The room I requested by phone (handicap room) was not available. They assigned me originally to an upstairs room. There is no elevator to get to the upper rooms. After telling the receptionist that my wife could not climb the steps, she gave me a room on the first floor. The room was a non-smoking room, but the smells in the room indicated that someone had been smoking in the room. The toilet seat was loose and was uncomfortable for my wife to use properly. No hand rails in the toilet seat area to assist getting up & down. The air condition system worked poorly. We had to turn it down to 66 degrees to get the room to cool off to a comfortable level.(the temperature in the room indicated 66 degrees, but in reality it probably was about 72. Breakfast and the lady serving the food was very good. The morning receptionist was also pleasant and expidited the bill for our deprarture.
We were there for a wedding. [...] the breakfast wasnt good.
Instead of having the flat egg patty, I would provide the Jimmy Dean type breakfast sandwiches that are individually microwaveable and a very close substitiute for those at McDonald's.
Decent but pretty basic. A little noisy from traffic and the nearby airport. Wireless internet is good if you are near the front where its source is. Bathroom is very small. Nice to have a microwave and fridge and the breakfast was good.
