We took the kids down for one night from the 26th to the 27th. Jenkinson's Aquarium was having an evening event and thought it would be nice to stay over. It was! We've stayed here in the summer and never been disappointed and the winter was no exception. The room was perfect. Two king beds, and spotless! We received a... More

Our telephone did not work, and the staff knew about it but wasn't fixed. The slidding door was broke. The jacuzzi didn't work, only two jets would go on. Would have to think twice before returning...people at desk where really nice.

Stayed here for a wedding. Rooms are in need of an update. The bathroom was terrible, with things broke/hardly working. For the price, I expected a lot more! I know it's a good "location" but would think twice before staying there again!
