My stay was a pleasure from beginning to end. The property manager (who seems to work nearly 24 hours each day,) is very professional and welcoming. He obviously knows how to train and motivate his staff. I could not find anything that was unsatisfactory. The property is older, but is spotless and everything functions properly. I will return!

The hotel is right off of a busy road, but set back and has a very nice large pool/courtyard/grass area in the middle of the rooms. The staff was friendly and helpful. At first I was somewhat leery of the safety of the parking area but I didn't have any trouble and the other people staying there were fine -... More

Had a job in Merritt Island and rented rooms for me and my guys. The rooms were nice with refrigerators and microwaves. Nice beds and pretty clean. The pool area looked nice but we were working not on vacation. They had a full gym that was open to patrons. The free hot breakfast was the reason we stayed. Every morning... More

The only reason I am not giving this property 5 stars is because this older property shows its age. They have done a wonderful job keeping it up, but several spots were cracking and just needed a full renovation. For example, the wall under the air conditioner was pretty beat up. Don't get me wrong; overall, the property was immaculate.... More

Place was ok - we went down 1 day early for cruise the next day. Place needs a remodel on the outside. Room was clean and orderly and very spacious. One of the sleeper beds remotes did not work. Caught the bus from the hotel to the ship - the process was a bit crazy but it worked.

No entertainment, no lounge, restaurant only open for breakfast till 10am, not someplace I would want to stay again especially for the price. I like staying at a place where I can party, dance or get drunk and not have to drive to a motel, just go back to my room.

This is an old well maintained property. The staff went overboard to make sure everything was just as we needed it. Our room had been updated and the bed was very comfortable. The morning of the cruise we had breakfast and then a shuttle picked us up and took us to the cruise ship.
