The entire front desk staff was very friendly and helpful! Your elevator was not working properly but it was ok also please it's very disgusting when guest dogs are in the pool! But besides those little mishaps definitely will return with my family. ..

Stayed here because a block of rooms were set aside for a nearby wedding. Read some previous reviews which were not that hopeful. Garish carpeting. We were " upgraded" because of my husband' s premiere status. Our "suite" had the jacuzzi tub right next to the bed with mirrors! We were apparently given a room w/ an ocean view, but... More

I booked two rooms for a family wedding in the area. First off the only elevator was under repair. My father asked for a first floor room due to heart lung condition. He was told they only had top floor and he would have to walk the stairs. The rooms were dirty and smelled of cigarettes even though they were... More

My family and I travel here a few times a year for a beach getaway. Very nice location and walking distance to shops and places to eat. The accommodations are nice, but nothing fancy. Quick drive to the beach and downtown area for more shopping.
