We stayed here two nights. Price was very reasonable. Room was clean and comfortable. Great view of the beach across the street. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was good though not anything hot - bagels, rolls, cereal, juice,coffe - covers the basics. Definitely would stay here again.

We stopped here on our way to Disney. This hotel is beach adjacent so the name "Beach-side" is a little deceiving. Nevertheless, I booked first and then read reviews later. I was so nervous that we would not have a very good stay. We enjoyed our room on the 5th floor facing the ocean/gulf. Was the room perfect? No, but... More

Overall, the hotel was comfy and good for an overnight stay. It has a good location, with many restaurants and stores within walking distance. Public beach access was right across the street. The room was clean, and the staff was friendly. The view of the Gulf from the 4th floor was great. Definitely request a room on the 4th or... More

When we arrived we were very tired from our trip to get there. The young lady at the desk was very helpful and pleasant. The room was larger than it appeared on the internet. The bed was comfortable. The only negative we had about the whole experience was breakfast. There was very little choice and the two (high school age)... More

Booked online and pictures are very deceiving. The lobby was filthy with boxes of inventory at the front door. The room was disgusting. The sheets were stained, TV and phone did not work. The front desk said "Oh well and did nothing. The pool was a nice shade of green with a layer oil floating on top. Needless to say,... More

Great location, just walk across the street to the beach. Rooms were comfy, need a little updating, but we were not in the room much. Simple Continental breakfast. Really the only down side was the toilet was very low to the floor. The pool is great and well maintained with a view of the ocean.

Location and sincerity of personnel are its only virtues. Fourth floor sounds like there is construction going on all night...personnel admitted that was a common complaint. Moved rooms. The furniture is rickity, walls extremely thin.

Checked in on a Thursday for a 3 night stay. As soon as we arrived, the fridge didn't work. Reported it to the front desk and they said we probably didn't have it on the right setting. We corrected the setting and it still didn't work. The couple items we had in the fridge went bad through the night. Reported... More
