It was close to the beach. The staff was rude and unprofessional

We loved the property and the staff! The front desk and housekeeping staff were so kind and accommodating. The beach access was right across the street and easy to get to. We will definitely stay here again when we return to LBTS...

Nice place for the money, convenient location Some guest were questionable.

You get what you pay for I guess. It wasn’t horrible but it wasn’t great. My room was never cleaned 1 time while I was there. The small bath towels were like sand paper. The view I had from the room was the elevator door with a over flowing garbage can. The staff was friendly though.

Great people room are big cleaning is great when you call they come

Ac sucked was very slow and not strong enough. But overall okay.

I checked in went to my room and saw three COCKROACHES. I’ve now been attempting to receive my refund for ONE month. The email address of their website doesn’t work.

I loved the location and the atmosphere. It was a very pleasant stay.

found a roach within 30 seconds of being there. slow service. ended up going to ocean sky across the street. never again.

The beach is few minutes walking from the hotel. The staff was friendly and the access to the beach was easy through their partner hotel that is a beachfront property just across the street. They had no breakfast included but in the morning they had coffee on the second floor. Parking is very limited but I arrived at 9:00 PM and found what it looks like the last empty spot. No mold smell in the room, hot water came out the shower fast, and there was no noise. I enjoyed my stay and I would come back to this hotel.

Property has to add some TLC to rooms. Problem with HOT water in the shower and Size of the single room. First have of week in King room was much better with quality and size.

The property is quiet and low key. Everything is good from the rooms to the office Worker that made you feel like Family

Friendly staff. Nice seating outdoor areas. Elevator a bit small and broke down during our stay.

I stayed at Ocean Reef before and after a cruise. The staff was helpful during my stay. I left my jewelry in the room safe. The manager emailed me and kept my jewelry (thousands of dollars worth) until my return. On my last night there I was bitten by bed bugs. I killed 2and showed the bloody sheets to the manager on duty. He waived my fee for the night but refused to waive my pre-cruise fee although I am convinced he knew of my exposure. I saw evidence of major infestation on the box-spring and mattress cover as the maintenance man looked at them. I would never stay or recommend this place again. I do appreciate the honesty of the manager in returning my jewelry .although I feel she knew about the bed bugs

Only thing was $10 extra was taken, not a big deal, but they could inform you what it is before they take it out with the $50 deposit

This property was old and dirty. Water was yellow! Sheets nasty on the bed. Had to be changed. Tried to get refund and go somewhere else but would not refund us. It was horrible. Coffee creamer ruined, no printer for paper for business center, I could go on and on about everything wrong!!!! Do not recommend!

The property had cockroaches in the room, not enough parking spaces on the lot for guests, and the best was broken.
