Nice place on the beach...beautiful environment. Lots of benches and swings outside to sit and relax. Room was cleaned and fresh towels delivered daily. Lots of activities...restaurant across street great, staff there was super friendly! Improvements could be made. The walls were paper thin. Could hear the neighbors at all hours. Their TV was louder than ours! This made it... More

Our room was cozy and clean. The beds are too small for adults. My husband and I each took one. We had our small Yorkie and she could come anywhere we went including the beach. It is an inexpensive place to stay for a larger family. Be willing to be patient, elevators are hot and slow.

The rooms were smaller than I expected but it has been 19 years since I've been to florida. The grand daughter loves the pools and beach. She had a ball. She loved the onsite ice cream shop. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

This is a great place to stay if you are not looking for luxury. The worst thing about this place is the rooms. They are outdated; however, they are clean. This isn't a biggie to me because we aren't in our rooms much. The reason I go here is because we never have to leave due to there being plenty... More

Definitely not a luxury hotel but VERY fun! We have stayed here twice, both times for a softball tournament for my daughter. The rooms are small, the elevators are HOT (definitely needs air) but the rooms are clean and the staff is friendly.....except for the nasty blonde lady with the southern accent at the check in desk.....My daughter, her friends...

Our room was so small, there wasn't even room for our luggage, the bathroom was so small I could hardly turn around in it! It was not clean, and smelled.....odd, stale, old.... Something. The noise level was awful, and little brats would beat on our door at night and wake us up.... Not much other than the beach near the... More

Great place to stay, rooms aren't 5 star deluxe rooms, but they are kept very clean and pretty modern.

Room was small but clean. Wasn't excited about having to make up the sofa bed. For the price expected better amenities in the room (not even coffee) but you do get a great view with lots of stuff to do without having to get in the car.
