And knowing the staff and employees around us were doing their jobs above our expectations, reflecting happiness doing... More

Staff was very friendly and service was excellent. Hotel lobby,pool area, and rooms were clean and very comfortable. Continental breakfast was great! No need for driving, just across the street from the beach. Many dining options to chose from, beside the ones at hotel lobby which were great, too and all walking distance. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The rates were outstanding. the service was... More

After reading the reviews I was skeptical to book a room. But after staying there an entire week it was a good experience. I made it my home for a week. When I went out my room was always made up when I came back. If I needed anything I'd call the front desk and they would be super helpful!... More
