Yes, the hotel is dated but the property is very very clean and the rooms smell wonderful. It is a very nice place to stay. The property is huge. I had 2 different rooms both on the waterside and the views were incredible. My second room in the Club building was amazing with a full kitchen, granite everywhere, 2 large... More

Our room was a good size and the bed was comfortable. That is really all the positive things I can say. The room needs a new paint job. The bathroom needed to be cleaned. By that I mean scrubbed! The shower floor was disgusting! The air conditioner was something else! The flap over the controls fell off every time I... More

This hotel has been remodeled, the staff was friendly and accommodating. The pool is wonderful, and the views are the best. The breakfast was yummy, and the restaurant on site is very good. The pool bar looks fun, but I don't partake, however, it was low key and not a bother.

Very disappointed in the cost of leaving our boat on the dock. They wanted $50.00 just to park our boat overnight. We've been all over Florida and left our boat at hotel docks all over with no cost. $50.00 is way excessive. Made our weekend much more complicated. Rooms are a little dated but our rooms were clean and well... More

Dear Lagboat, Thank you for your review. I am sorry you felt the dockage fees were excessive. We actually charge a slight discount in comparison to our neighbors Sarabay Marina. I am happy thought that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the compliment about our clean rooms. Sincerely, Navid Kichi More
