We got free shuttle from the airport, the shuttle comes every 45 min. Make sure you call the hotel when arriving at the airport, they'll tip off the drivers that guest are waiting and it may shortened your wait. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the area and the cruise dock.The rooms were clean and fresh. We choose a... More

We had a very nice 3 days at this hotel. the room was clean and very comfortable. we even had the chance to see some wild dolphins jumping in front of the hotel. it was simply magic. the workers on the shuttle are nice and friendly. i will surely come again.

This is an excellent facility but the noise from the hotel bar and the noise from the establishment to the west leave no opportunity for a quiet time on the balcony watching the sunset. The restaurant serves good food but a leisurely breakfast to the thump, thump of over volumde music at 9:00am in the morning does nothing to promote... More

Dear Brian B, I hope the music will not keep you from returning to our facility. I wish you had said something about the music from our bar while you were here. They are not supposed to have loud music at breakfast and if it's too loud in the rooms, we can get them to adjust the base and turn... More

Great hotel, very clean and well kept. You could tell it was an older building, but they have done a great job at maintaining the rooms and keeping them up to date. Attached to a very fun restaurant as well!

February 25,2015 It was getting late an we needed a place to sleep close to the Laser Spine Institute because my first appointment was at 10am the next morning.

We had a great experience at this hotel. Right from the moment we arrived, the front desk clerk greeted us with a warm smile, we shared a laugh, and he even gave us tips and direction on where to go to eat since it was very late on the day we arrived and we were hungry. The next day, he... More

We stayed 4 nights here. We booked a water view room, which I highly recommend! The front office staff was very friendly, as well as the room staff. We loved the close proximity to Hogans Beach, and Whiskey Joe's. We will definitely be back when we are back in town.
