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

We requested a non-smoking courtyard view room. The first room we were assigned, we could not even enter it for the entire room was saturated with the smell of cigarettes. We were assigned a second room, which did not have the stench of tobacco, but the 'courtyard' view, was down an alley, when we asked for an actual 'courtyard' view,... More

My husband and I stayed there for 3 nights. When we walked in the room, it had a bad odor, the floors were filthy, and there were bugs and cob webs in every corner. We chose this place because it looked nice in the pictures and the outside looked nice from the beach view, I regret that decision. I would... More

Clean room, balcony overlooking lake Heron. Breakfast shared w/ Clarion Hotel was a madhouse . We left. Pricy. Nothing to write home about. Indoor water pool looked great for kids!! Seagulls a little annoying ! O.K. Beach not many chairs. Staff was pleasant , room in good condition. Not the best or worst.

This hotel was nice and quiet at night. The beds and pillows were average. The decor was out of the 60's/70's... Which we found amusing because we are kids of the 70's. The sink was next to the 2nd queen bed. The toilet and shower were in a small room. The bath decor was 70's too! The room seemed clean... More

Thought this would be a decent hotel, for the price, but waaaay wrong. When we finally got into our room it had a terrible odor, called the front desk to ask to be switched- no extra rooms. They sent a cleaning person to sprinkle arm and hammer on the carpet and vacuum--a cleaning person who just decided to try and... More
