Like most beach properties, the hotel is showing its age. Whether it is the bathroom door that is not plumb and doesn't quite shut properly, or the carpeting that needs replacing, the hotel could use some sprucing up. However, there was nothing horrendous about the rooms. Some things to keep in mind: 1. There is onsite parking but it is... More

The experience started out a little rocky. Like all hotels in a resort area during the busy season, prices were higher than I normally like to spend, especially since we were really just passing through. But we figured one night at the beach would be nice, so I booked anyway. I chose a rate that allowed a 3-day advance cancel,... More

Excellent all the way around! Very clean, all the personnel were friendly & professional. My wife,my daughter and I were 100% satisfied. I recommend it to anyone who's going on vacation. The location of the hotel is convenient to shops, restaurants and the beach.

This hotel is well managed in every way. The staff is friendly, courteous and gives great service. The free breakfast is great. The rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Location is close to everything. There are two good restaurants right next to the hotel. The Convention Center is in walking distance of the hotel.

Stayed here on Friday to avoid the Saturday traffic coming to the beach. We rented a condo for the week but would consider staying the whole week here next summer. Just across the street from the beach and walking distance to restaurants and shopping. No complaints.

I booked this hotel on trip advisor because of the good reviews. I went in blind. Everyone was right, very clean and comfortable, I joined the rewards program and saved. The value of a amazing breakfast and convenience of having the beach across the street and a beautiful park out back, and a pool and a hot tub was worth... More

Nothing but good things to say. From the friendliness of the staff to the cleanliness of the room, it was great. We had requested a high floor bayside room which they honored. The room was immaculate and had everything we needed. A refrigerator a little larger than a mini, a microwave, and cabinets. The rain showerhead in the bathroom was... More

Great nights sleep in very comfy bed. Crisp clean sheets. Lots of large towels. Two pools and an excellent hot breakfast. Well worth the price we paid. Can't wait to go back. Thanks to the staff! Halls were quiet even though hotel was full.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel this past weekend. It was comfortable, clean and fairly quiet. The free breakfast was good, but definitely crowded from 9-9:30. It's nice that the hotel is only one street away from the beach. Several restaurants within walking distance.
