First We had to check in at Quality inn,second the hotel was very old and dirty.Definitly needs improvement and renovation

I will DEFINATELY be back at this hotel again! The room was clean and well stocked with towels and everything else we needed. No microwave but we didn’t care. It has a fridge. The remote didn’t work so an attendant immediately came and fixed it. Wonderful service. Didn’t care that we had to Check in at the hotel next-door. It was no big deal. We had a beach side room on the top floor and it has a balcony that gave us an amazing view of the beach and people swimming as well as the ferry’s docking! I loved staying here and didn’t want to leave. The beach was so nice. Bon fires all along the beach at night. So beautiful. Clean beach and they even have lounge chairs down there. I face timed either kids at home and they thought I was in Mexico. Lol. Thank you for the amazing affordable stay. It’s by the lake so you’ll get tiny flying bugs but I really wasn’t bothered at all by then. Great place to stay.

No one was in the office we have to pick up the key on a different hotel, the room was not ready floor we’re duty they didn’t vacuum.

Beach was amazing

No elavator - saw brace on my leg were able to give me ground floor on the beach. So nice!

Old and falling apart. Electric plugs not up to code, bathroom walls were chipped, the shower curtain were falling down and there were spiders all over the place.not like the picture

Disappointing

This place was disgusting and not as advertised. Definitely not Orbitz’s fault but Orbitz was great in assisting accommodations. The rooms were dirty and full of bugs. The hotel was stinky smelled like old wet carpet. The bedding had stains. The reception was located in the hotel next door and the water park was closed. I do not recommend staying here. Staff was extremely rude.

Poor condition

Only thing that was nice was the view. Everything was falling apart, faucet was just hanging, countertop in bathroom was broken. Fridge didnt work. Neighbors partied all night. Had to check in at another hotel. No breakfast in the morning

VERY DIRTY AND NASTY PLACE PLEASE DO NOT TAKE KIDS HERE.

I will stay here anytime in in the area again! The room was huge. We had 2 sliding doors and right on the beach. Also we had a private patio. My dog was welcome and happy. The staff was friendly and sweet.

Property was not kept up well and facilities dirty. Room access was from outside with only a door knob lock no dead bolt from the outside. For paying top dollar for rooms it was terrible. We left without staying.

The room was filled with bugs and cobwebs and when I spoke to the Manager she was very rude and initially refused to give me a refund and didn’t believe me about cobwebs and bugs until I showed video footage. Also the water park and pool where under construction and unavailable for use so that was false advertising on part of Hotel. Finally, breakfast was also not available on site and you would have to go next door to another hotel. Very poor service and hospitality by the manager. I ended up having to leave hotel and cancel the reservation and this was 11:00 at night and I had 3 small children. It was a very frustrating and horrible experience.
