This place was overpriced for what we got. I loved the location, right off of Beach Blvd and a few miles from the beach. The room looked like they stopped mid-renovation. There were 2 different mattresses, one pillow top and the other was hard and worn out. There was a newer looking vanity and tile, but the paint was literally... More

That is all this hotel has going for it. Room smelled like a truck stop hotel with patched holes all throughout. Leave this hotel for the high schoolers to party at.

The hotel was ok, looks add though they are in the process of a remodel. We had the suite, set up a little odd, but not too bad, although there was only an air conditioner in the front bedroom which had the small bed. The king bed was in the back with no air. Not really sure why the room... More

We just stayed one night. Our room was waiting, and it was what we requested. Spa is more like a pool , very impressed. Beds were a bit hard, that was our only complaint !!! Also breakfast is done at 9:00am , too soon for us :(

The room and fixtures exceeded our expectations. The staff was always willing to answer questions on local attractions, always smiling and would always wish us a good day or have a good nights sleep whenever we entered the office. Would my family and I comeback....already making plans for Spring Break 2016. Great job, Ho Jo.
