The location of the hotel to restaurants and other attractions, the view of the bay is amazing and the hotel itself is clean and staff is very friendly! I did not like that the restaurant only opened Thurs thru Sun. We didn't get a chance to dine there.

PLACE IS BEAUTIFUL BUT A HAVE PROBLEM WITH MY ROOM ON CLEANING

TONS OF UNDERAGE KIDS RUNNING AROUND THE POOL DRINKING AND ACTING CRAZY. REPORTED IT TO THE FRONT DESK SEVERAL TIMES AND THEY DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT IT. WENT TO GO TO MY ROOM AND THERE WAS A DRUNK KID BANGING ON DOORS YELLING "LET ME IN I JUST WANT TO SHOWER!" CALLED THE FRONT DESK TO LET THEM KNOW AND THEY SAID THEY WOULD SEND SECURITY BUT IT TOOK US TO CALL THREE TIMES FOR SECURITY TO ACTUALLY SHOW UP. BY THAT TIME THE KID WAS LONG GONE AFTER HE ATTEMPTED TO COME INTO MY ROOM AND THEN RAN DOWN THE STAIRWELL.

Location is great-on the water, 5 minutes to airport, 20 minutes to Busch Gardens but I would stay somewhere else if I came back to the area. They

We ‘checked’ in 10 min before check in time and were told we’d have to wait, after they took our $ so we went to the back of the line and it was almost an hour before we were back at the counter where we were told our room still wasn’t ready how long would it be? Up to 2 hours but we were the first on the list they took my # and they’d call when it was ready 2 1/2 hours later I was irritated and went to the counter to see the progress there were 15 cards on the counter ready for customers what did we get in return for this madness? They waved the ‘resort’ fee needless to say I get they were busy but to keep up with demand they should have more people on staff never have I ever had an experience as absurd as this was

There were some updates (TV stand, bathroom sink), but other things desperately needed updating: -Plumbing (toilet took forever to flush and barely drained) -Shower/tub -Beds -Toilet (the flush handle was about the fall off) The staff was great, but for a resort, the restaurant downstairs was closed before 11 pm, so I had to go off-campus to eat, and the hotel left something to be desired. In all, this is a dated party hotel.

The location is very good. It is an old dated property and the walls are paper thin.

It was beautiful and it was close to other places.I loved it.

This place reminded me of a motel. It was so filthy and the AC in my room wasn’t working either. The hallways had food/ crumbs. The elevator was filthy. I also noticed that the hallways smelled like cigarettes....since there are balconies to every room people smoke and it goes through the hotel. My rooms floors were sticky and I found hairs on my bed and in the bathroom. I don’t think they clean their rooms, just dust them and keep moving. I will not be coming back here. I would say if you’re on spring break and don’t really care then go for it.

Not as clean as it should be location is great restaurant were not open except weekend pool was not heated could use some talc to be a great hotel. First room lock broke, second room wring view we pd for water not city. 3rd room was perfect 😄

The view from our private balcony was amazing! That was the only good thing. Room was dirty-toilet clogged upon arrival, hair all over the floor, dark liquid in the balcony that I had to clean myself. Staff and guests were not wearing masks inside majority of the time. The grounds were filthy with cigarette butts and old NYE favors. Our neighbors were out on the balcony talking about how they smoked crack the night before. Not an enjoyable stay for a middle aged couple.
