My wife and I stayed there from March 18th to March 27th. We stayed in a remodeled room. Not only it exceeded our expectations it was an experience of a lifetime. Having tile floor was a bonus coming from the beach we would bring sand in the rooms. In carpet you don't know if a room is really clean. Front... More

This is truly a gem in the rough right now, but so worth the time and value. The new owners have you look at your room first before to move into it. Now that was a very nice suprise! The place is in transition and work was being done while we were there, but the staff was so friendly it... More

Well I was here a little over a month ago and there were some exciting changes going on in this place....I ended up coming back unexpectedly and was very surprised at how many changes had been made just since February. More rooms are completely renovated and it seems like the last of the riff raff is gone. All of the... More

I have been staying at this location for approximately 10 years, 2 weeks each spring. This year has been the best by far! I have always loved the pool and location. That remains the same, excellent. I had tolerated the other issues because of these two items. However, with the new owners and extremely helpful staff, the rooms are clean... More

There were 3 garbage cans outside our room that were overflowing and had obviously been there for days, because they smelled like death. When I mentioned it to someone who worked there, they emptied half the garbage and the rest stayed there for 4 days. It was absolutely disgusting. The whole place is under construction. While I appreciate the fact... More

New owners are in the middle of rehab. This hotel will likely be REALLY nice once the construction is completed. If you can look past some of the debris right now, it's not a bad stay for a night. Many rooms have full kitchenettes (however oddly, they were missing an in room coffee machine). The AC unit was a bit... More

Thank you for sharing your thoughts about your stay with us. You are correct in that we are currently undertaking a huge renovation. We have tried to minimize the impact on our current guests. We are nearly finished and are excited to show off our new hotel. Upon completion, our guest rooms will be just as fabulous as our beautiful... More

from the street the hotel looks ago but you know you are in trouble when you enter lobby with AC off and a Parrot behind the counter. Next warning was an extra $100 security charge on room. We walked to room past lots of construction and finally arrived at room. Door was busted, room smelled like smoke in a nonsmoking... More

We are sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us. We are a Florida hotel in a very tropical location. Along those lines, our property mascot is a parrot and we like to introduce her to guests. She is very pretty and many enjoy meeting her! As most hotels do, we either keep a credit card on file or take... More
