Great staff...under some construction...great location on the bay...❤️

We've stayed 3 times, as always they never disappoint. Rooms are spacious. Pool is nice. They are remodeling and I look forward to our next visit!

This hotel is in the midst of a major renovation. At first we thought the property was closed, At first look, I was like omg, what did I get into. Room is clean, They are trying hard to update the place. Water pressure was extremely low. No fitness center, no continental breakfast, etc. If you are staying for the night, you will be fine, would not recommend for extended stay.

No towels or other wash clothes in the room. No clothes hangers in the closet. No toiletries. Television didn't work. Water to my room was shut off after I left the room for dinner. Had to move to another room. No anti slip mat in the bath tub so I wouldn't fall. Room always smelled like someone was smoking in the hall way. Room was never made up for me. Had to ask for toilet paper. Employee opened my door and walked in on me while I was dressing, never knocked. Towels I got were thread bare. Overall property was dirty, stairs never cleaned, trash in parking lot. And I paid full price for this. NEVER AGAIN

The hotel was nice. Once they are through renovating it would be excellent . Our view from our room was better than the pictures on line. We loved it! Will definitely stay again!

Is the old Howard Johnson and, for the most part, still looks old. They are doing renovations and when they’re through, it might be better. Is on the inter coastal waterway and close to the beaches.

In the midst of renovations. Rooms are clean and fresh with updated look. Beautiful view of the sound. Promising once finished. Great staff and breakfast.

Bathtub not clean, mold on the grout. The TV didn’t work I had to be moved to another room. The bed sheets had sand on them (between the fitted and top sheet.). AC was super loud, I had to sleep with the pillow over my ears. There was No hot water to make my tea with at the breakfast bar. I would like to say kudos about the breakfast the eggs, gravy, and link sausage were great; all though, the wheat bread was stale and hard. But, for $99 a night I guess you get what you pay for.

The room looks exactly like the pictures! Beautiful room. Check in was awesome! Guy was at the desk and was so personable and makes you feel like he already know you. He addressed me by name every time I saw him. We had an issue with the TV and maintenance was prompt in coming to fix it. Sherrie was also a sweetheart each morning at breakfast. As soon as something got low, she was right there to replenish. My only complaint would be that the rooms are kinda small and because they are renovating, the pool was closed. I would still recommend this hotel.

Breakfast was weak. Individual milk, butter, cream cheese, etc. A most. Fruit a most. Proper nutrition and variety is a plus.

When i checked in the gentleman at the front desk named Guy was extremely friendly kind professional and helpful. The rooms look exactly as pictured. Great location too!!! Overall great stay!!!

I walked in shortly after 4PM to check in. While I was waiting to get a room I over heard three people complaining about how the room they had just gotten was not clean. So when it was my turn to get my room I hope that I wasn't going to be one of those people. As soon as I opened the door the room had an smell. The air was off so I think it wasn't due to that. I looked over to the beds and realize that one of the beds were completely undone. Luckily the staff was right outside my door and were able to attend to it. The hotel overall looks beat down. The pictures online are not accurate. Wish I would had looked elsewhere and believed the other reviewers. Overall wouldn't recommend. At all.

Dirty, dated and detestable. It was expensive, 250 a night for a 25 a night room. The room smelled like doo doo all 3 nights, the toilet backed up, the shower didn't drain, the 1970's linoleum was so sticky our shoes stuck to it, needless to say we never took our shoes off until lifting our feet into a very uncomfortable bed with tiny pillows. The room looked like there had been a bar room brawl going on in it before we got there. Completely dissatisfied

It was affordable and a nice hotel. As soon as you walk in it smells clean! What more can you ask for.

We checked in at 8:30 pm and the hall to the elevator was dark. So dark that there was a woman using her phone's flashlight to look at the brochures of things to do in the area. The only light was a dim neon GREEN light. Very odd. The hallways to the rooms were not very much brighter. Once in the room, there were lots of wall lamps....and about 4 different kinds of light bulbs with varying colors of light. The laminate wood floors look worn out and cheap although they are new. Beds were small and hard. The room was large, which is the only good thing. The complimentary breakfast was awful. There is a sign prohibiting the taking back of food to your room, too.

Housekeeping needs to learn how to clean a room. Do not disturb signs mean nothing to maintenance and the housekeeping staff. The floors were dirty, bed spread had nasty stains, bathroom not cleaned when HK did enter. Bldg 2 facing the water, entry carpet was awfu . Guy at the front desk was great!
