We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was large and clean. The staff was very polite and helpful. Cost was a good value for such a nice room. Very quiet and restful. Nice variety of food for breakfast. Would only suggest better pillows and better outdoor lighting. We will stay again when in the area.

Traveling with friends, we had two rooms. My friends room was clean and tidy, however, our room was a different story. Upon arrival, we were told that my room was not ready. No problem, we would go into Gulfport and show our friends the casinos. We were gone about 4 hours and returned to the hotel where we checked in... More

My husband and I stayed for4 nights. The room was a nice size and it had an area with a couch and desk, which was nice extra in a hotel room. We had our laptop with us and it was a breeze hooking up to their wireless. TV wasn't the greatest. It looked like they didn't have HD TV and... More

I stayed in this hotel while traveling from Florida to Texas. It is conviniently located by the interstate, but the entrance can be tricky!!The outside needs painting. The lobby was quite nice, small with a few sits and "modern" look. The front staff wasn't as friendly, and weren't professionally dressed for the job. Check in was quick. They gave me... More

The room was clean, front desk staff wasn't rude, breakfast could had been better there was no bacon and no waffle maker. If those 2 things get added it would be perfect as far as breakfast but over all I would stay again and recommend friends and family if they ever visit Gulfport

Stayed for 1 night. Everything was clean, front desk clerks where nice & the rooms where ok. Not a five star hotel but overall no complaints. I would definitely recommend this hotel to family & friends thats on a budget & I would stay there again if I go back to Gulfport.

For the price paid, this stay is great . The room is large and spread out. Everything is clean. I am a fan of the curved shower rod! The staff has been friendly and helpful. Breakfast this morning was good. The lady can cook grits! No bacon... Anyway, the only downside is the noise. Bump bump bam bump thump constantly!!!... More

One of the least expensive properties in the area, this is a freeway motel with the usual amenities. A little noisy on the interstate highway side. Staff polite and helpful. Breakfast is passable. If you head straight to the beach, Steve's Marina is about five miles away.
