The hotel is well decorated. The suite was small, but clean. However, in the morning our trash can was crawling with a million ants. We were on the 5th floor. This upset us. Beds were comfortable. Tub was deep and clean. We did not use indoor pool, but outdoor pools were clean and not overly chlorinated. Picnic area was very nice also. Balcony was decent sized, but we were unable to enjoy it. They are said to be smoke free, but everytime we tried to use the balcony a neighbor was smoking on thiers. My children and I cannot breath around smoke so we were very disappointed the rule is not enforced. The parking garage is across the street which was inconvenient with all the rain, but parking attendant was helpful.

Clean resort, close access to Beach. Room was actually bigger than we anticipated. Wish they had a bigger pool. But they do have a few lazy rivers in the resort.

The propert was good. Did not like the fact that golf carts were allowed to take up parking spots in garage. Property is a little dated.

Basic hotel friendly staff made the stay great very short walk to the beach. Clean room. This was our first visit. I didn't see any cops or security made me wonder. Found out from someone who live there that the hotel was located in the rich white ppl area. Very quiet.

THE staff was exceptional the grounds were capacious yet the parking garage was not accommodating for Pick up trucks. the rooms were nice looking but the night stand drawers were shot and the beds were worn out. the included amenities were of a enjoyable quality.

Loved the ocean view of my room. The restaurant in the hotel served very good food.

I liked the amenities the property had to offer, such as the jacuzzi tub in each suite.

The room was dirty! The vent in the bathroom leaked water on the floor causing my daughter to fall and get hurt. I told them about it and they didn't care or ask if she was okay! Sent a tech up to fix it and it still leaked. So it wasn't even fixed. There was black mold on the ceiling so this has been an ongoing problem.

Great property, on the Ocean, great looking building well maintained. Staff was friendly and helpful, room was clean and comfortable, housekeeping was very good. Other guests were polite and respectful of space and property, very comfortable place to relax. Location is great, very quiet but two blocks from Main st. Restaurants, and very close to major stores making it so convenient to buy all necessities while avoiding tourist trap rip off prices. Overall it was a great experience would recommend facility and will most likely return.

I had stayed here when this property was newer - they've let maintenance slip BIG TIME. A/C unit failed the AM of our last day/night there. They did ZERO. Ended up having to sleep in another room and had to move late at night. (Why not call text prior to 10:00 PM???). BIG issue also - the smell of WEED in the halls and on the beach/pool area. Staff didn't seem to care. Maids we extremely slow. Didn't get maid service until very late afternoon. Won't be back.

I love that we were so close to the beach, also the room was clean and spacious.

Great customer service. Friendly. Eager to help.

I really liked the suite. I would have liked room service (did it exist and I missed it?). The beach access was great!!

Restaurant atmosphere was bland and food choices limited. No signage suggesting food service poolside. Overpriced for the accommodations.

Access to beach was easy nice pool cleaning services excellent beach clean Good water pressure in shower Need bigger beds parking garage difficult to park in concerned with rental car getting hit by door

Thank you for your comments and we do apologize that we have so many guests who ignore the no smoking policy and continue to do so. We do try and catch this action but do rely on guests to help us as it is very hard to see from the ground. Again we are sorry to see it impacted your stay.

Thank you for your review and glad to see you enjoyed the Condotel concept. Rooms are typically twice as large as hotel rooms and you have a separate bedroom to enjoy.

Thank you for your response. While we do not allow golf carts in the Parking Garage normally we rarely are able to determine who rented these and understand and are working on handling this concern.
