Great Beach location with clear water Poor customer service from manager Did not have reserved room type available & got downgraded with inadequate sleeping space. Broken fridge & no coffee maker in downgraded room.

Hotel manager very rude. Came in after a hurricane had to drive all night unable to find hotel half way on trip. Called and was told they could get us a room one night sooner arrived and they said they didn’t have room only 30 mins after original call!! We had to cancel and go to another resort

Staff were absolutely fantastic. The only way to stay at this hotel with with a room with a balcony. Interior rooms aren’t as nice.

DO NOT STAY HERE! Had a balcony facing ocean and still checked out with a couple of hours after we ate(OFF SITE) and found another hotel to stay at. The weather stripping was gone on both our main doors. Water was pouring in from the one. There was MOLD on the ceiling of our shower and no it was not surface mold(like it makes a difference) the silver wall plate cover was just hanging and you could see the mold INSIDE the wall. The bathroom door wouldn’t even shut. Cigarette butts were everywhere. While checking out my husband got dripped on by the HVAC system we looked up and there was black mold all around the system!! We are retired firefighters, how this place passes inspection we have no clue! They have several buildings we were in building B I think the only building the keep up is the main one. After talking with the locals in the area, they here awful stories all the time. And also don’t know how it’s still in business. The pictures online were beautiful. The two pools and tiki bars couldn’t even get us to stay. Went two hotels down found a beautiful CLEAN hotel to stay with a front ocean view no balcony bit clean!!! I looked at the reviews on the booking site and didn’t see any really bad ones. Don’t know if this will get posted or not. But check the reviews on line!!

Access to the beach was great! Staff was rude not helpful. You would think for a $400 dollar a night hotel room that staff would be attentive. Door lock to motel room was broken. Notified staff who did not fix the door lock or make contact with us. Probable will not stay there again.

The staff is great, the place and room was clean all around well kept and easy access to restaurants and shops nearby.

My family loved staying here. Loved how close to the beach it was located. The staff was super friendly and very accommodating. They answered our questions and helped with our requests. The main issue I had was the dresser drawers in the main room. It was a small 3 drawer chest that were very flimsy and would fall when we tried to pull them out. Needless to say we didn’t use them and kept our clothes in our luggage. The rooms need to be updated with some sturdy dressers.

Property was family oriented..vibrant

The property has direct beach access, which was nice. The restaurant attached to the hotel is horrible. There were bugs and mold is the bathroom which caused me to get ill due to allergies. The staff tried to be helpful.

Clean, great staff, nice room. I’ll definitely be staying there again!

Plenty of room at the pools, always got a chair at the beach. Manatee grill food and drinks was very good. Just like everywhere you go you can tell they were short staffed-had to close early somedays.

Great location !! Nice staff !!!

Need more handicap parking close to all entrances

Staff was nice but saw a few roaches in the room and had to ask housekeeping for bug spray. Didn’t feel real comfortable after that.

The property is immediately adjacent to the beach and the view was fantastic. One of the amenities was the use of beach chairs and umbrellas and that was excellent and convenient. The staff was very nice. The room could use some updating, but my overall impression is very good value.

Would go back

It was a nice hotel for the price
