I have stayed here twice now and have yet to be disappointed. If you are looking for an upscale hotel, this isn't the place. It is old Florida charm! Rooms are very clean and spacious. If you request a view in your reservation, they make sure you have one. The customer service was great! The only downside is the smell... More

The venue was perfect for our event and the staff was courteous and accommodating. They went out of their way to make our event a success. Our participants were thrilled with the new location and we look forward to... More

Upon inspection my cousin's bed had dried bloody stains on the white comforter & an insect in his pillow case. We called the front desk to request a new pillow & comforter. The desk person said they... More
