Excellent the improvements are awesome service employees and front desk was way better than ever i will recommend and will continue booking too

Dirty room and lining, bugs crawling in the room and the hallway, Misleading customers. I paid $188/ night ,this is outrageous. I don’t recommend to anyone this hotel which should be a minus low star motel.

They remodeled is way better rooms breakfast tiki bar food areas around lots of employees working and cleaning is definitely way way better than before good job for the management and improvements done price went up a bit but everything else is being like that so keep it up guys im definitely going back soon

Location is nice but property isn't really what's on the pictures. Its old, not clean and disappointing. Hope they update the picture. I will definitely not stay here again. Sorry.

The tikki bar stuff very poor to the customers everything else average 7 of 10

Overall it's a nice property with a nice & friendly staff. The tiki bar that's on the property has good food, drinks & a friendly staff.

We arrived early and needed to get into our room early to prepare for a party. Jennifer at the desk was awesome. Gave us a room which didn’t have a king size bed that we asked for but we appreciated it. Rooms need total revamp. No elevators so u have to carry suitcases up stairs. Our door to room barely closed. Very small room. Bathtub old and stained. Mattress terrible and air conditioner barely put out cold air. I believe they have many locals living there as there were several rooms with plants, shades and people smoking weed and cigarettes. The pool area was gorgeous and very clean. So was the reception area. I wouldn’t stay there again.

The staff was super friendly. It.wad a really safe area, the breakfast lady was the sweetest thing. There was also a great pool located next to the tiki bar !

Location was nice, but my room had plumbing issues. Water in tube didn't go down for hours after shower and water flow at the sink slow to a trickle. How ever place was recently renovated. Don't know what happened to the plumbing.

Unkept and exterior dirty needs some tidying up and TLC. Poor quality and interior of room bad Sheetrock and no hair dryer. I felt like I was staying in subsidized housing and lots of people loitering and smoking. One guy had a Weber BBQ in the parking lot. Big wedding with drinking in the parking lot. The pictures look good but the non waterfront bldgs avoid.

Definitely not what I expected. The side door to enter the hotel is not secure, so anyone could walk in.

Room wreaks of smoke, space is run down beyond belief. Pictures are not accurate at all. Cannot get out of here fast enough.

For a “waterfront” property the rooms were old and outdated. The room that we received was way over priced and definitely not worth even half the price we paid for it. This is an old property, and it shows.

By far the dirtiest worst motel I ever been in. this should not be called a hotel it's a motel. Bugs dirty flooring dirty bathroom and horrible pillows.

Older hotel, but updated and very clean. Staff was great. Dont miss out on the onsite bar, Tarpon Bay it had amazing food and a live band the nights we were there.

nice view boat ramp is 4 miles down the road so plan for that

Badly needs an overhaul- our box spring was covered with mildew which was visible because of the sloppily made bed ( dust ruffle partly tucked in- sheets not on straight- ) beds very soft- arrived at 5 pm and had to wait for a room to be cleaned for us.

I had reserved a 2 queen with a waterfront view. first room (501) they put us in had cobwebs hanging from the corners of the room, huge stains on the carpet -looked like someone was killed in it. The full length mirror was off the wall, there was black hairs in the bathroom, the picture in the room was coming apart from its matting and it smelled awful. Went back to guest services and explained the room was not what we had reserved and it was dirty. Was told they had no more rooms with a were view-was given room 100 around the corner from the office an the bottom floor and not offered any type of concession for the reservation issue. we were then woken up at 12:00 by screaming from a man and woman and someone started banging on our door. After 30 minutes I called the office and complained and they said they would send security, again no concession was offered to us for our inconvenience.

Nice pool and good restaurant. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were very adequate
