I booked rooms for 3 days precruise and one post. The pre cruise was fine but post was way under expected service. I am Spire Elite and requested early check in. While I totally understand they have to get rooms cleaned after a full house, we were first Grp in (with reservations in place) yet the guy at desk took... More

My family and I stayed at this location last week. We were greeted by German at the front desk. I love German's energy while he checked us in. We stayed for one night as we were just visiting the area for only two days.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights before we left for our honeymoon. The hotel is conveniently located across from a Big Lots, Wynn Dixie, McDonalds, and a Dunkin Donuts. If we needed any last minute things, we were able to run across the street and pick it up with ease. The rooms were average, but very humid!... More

I haven’t even stayed at the hotel yet, but I’ve made a reservation a month in advance and now that I’ve got a few billing questions no one is available. Front desk goes home at 8pm and apparently no one is in that physical building… ever. The 2 times they have picked up, it’s to tell me different ways to... More

Stayed here for a month while training. All the staff are great and bent over backwards to make my stay enjoyable. When I brought my family in to visit they made sure to give them a room close to mine and extended there check out which really made the trip much easier with little ones.

Stayed here for a night while on way to miami after landing late at night at Ft Lauderdale. Room excellent. Beds comfortable. Bathroom cleanr. Ac cold. Customer service top notch. I landed late and did not have water to drink and front desk gave me two complementary water bottles. Breakfast selection is very good. Over all an excellent stay.

When making reservations I made them a day later by accident. German, the young man at the front desk was so helpful and accommodating. Got us our rooms and at a discount. He also offered that our car could stay on hotel property while we cruisekd, a lot cheaper than the port. The rooms were very nice. Bed's very comfortable.... More
