cum stains on the sheets, ants in the room, poor service, rude people, didn't get the room we booked. we asked for lakeside and got courtside, we had rude neighbors, didn't get our own parking spot. we were told to find somewhere else to park and walk. just one of the worst place to go!

Hotel was a great deal and was right on the beach with a view of the bridge. Close to the boat docks and all kinds of attractions. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was very large and beds were comfortable. The decor is out of date and the pool and water park (only fun for young children) need some freshening... More

We got smokin deal, nice room, and a breakfast. But: there was only one bath towels for the three of us (we could have called the front desk, but did not really notice till it was time to go) and the breakfast left allot to be desired (the meat looked like Armidillo) But the price was fine and we were...

I am surprised at the horrible reviews, we were quite happy with our stay. The price was right. Actually got the room $10 cheaper directly through the hotel than Booking.com. We had a delux two queen room with balcony. The room appeared as though it had just recently been remodeled and was very clean. Breakfast was a little crowded, but... More

I had read the reviews AFTER I had booked. I must say the people with previous reviews must have expected 5 star catering. The hotel was great. My kids Loved the watermark. Only 2 things were wrong, hot tub wasn't hot at all.... And these tiny black fly things had made their way into our room (don't worry they are... More

For only $67, we booked a room with two queens. Upon arrival, they told us they had freely upgraded us to a beachfront room. The furniture was old, but clean, and the free breakfast was pretty good. We also enjoyed going to the waterfront a couple hotels down (access was free). I thought for $67 our experience was very good!!

I read some of the more recent reviews and was a little afraid of staying but I am glad we booked here. The rate was quite a bit less than others. We had a waterfront room that was clean with comfortable beds and a nice hot shower! The staff was nice and it was great! If you're looking for a... More

We made the reservations on the internet without seeing the facility. Bad choice! Reserved two nights and by the time we got into our room it was too late to cancel for either day. Nothing like it looks on they website. Our room was filthy, food or something on the walls. Stains on our bedding. TV from the 70's sitting... More
