This hotel was average. Taxes will kill you at the end of your stay. What starts out to be 84 or $85/nite end up being $105 per night. Have to ask for additional bath towels and the next day a guest is back down to two towels per room. Pillows were good. Not flat and stiff like most hotels. Could... More

Thank you for your recent review of our hotel. Unfortunately, we do not have any control over our local and state taxes as they are 12%. We do not charge any additional fees here at all. If your rate was $85, then you should have paid around $95 with tax which is below all accommodations with less amenities at the... More

Family of 4 (kids are 14 and 10) on a weekend getaway from Orlando. The only area of opportunity is the comfort of the bed. Other then that, the pool area is wonderful, well manicured. The bartender (didn't catch his name but he is a world's strongest man competitor) made me my Miami vice even though there is only one... More

The room is just what we needed and super clean. The staff was very nice, and also helpful. We had a problem with the soda vending machine and laundry detergent machine eating our money, and they staff took care of the problem immediately.

The hotel is older but well maintained. Breakfast is OK. The pool area is very nice. The pool bar is great. The service was really good with great bartenders. The bartenders are very friendly and helpful.They have a nice lunch menu, not a large menu but adequate. Definitely recommend this hotel.
