We loved being away from the crowded beachfront. Great pool and we loved the cabana. Great rooms. Clean. Friendly staff. My family and I will certainly be back. Next time, we'll be sure to get there early for check in in order to get a ocean front room.

I stayed one night while in town for a wedding. The hotel was in a great location and my room had a view of the ocean. The hotel was close to restaurants and the pool area was enjoyable. Oh, and I loved the bed and the pillows - very comfortable! However, the carpeting in my room (324) was worn and... More

I was on the Island for work and it was quiet and nice. I had stayed across the island in the past but this location gave me more access to restaurants. Enjoyed my stay and the staff was very friendly and nice. The first morning there was a line to order breakfast but there was enough staff and they were... More

It's a great hotel, right in-front of gulf. If you can get gulf-view room, it would be awesome for the stay. Staff was very friendly and cooperative. You can use shuttle service to room around; with-out worrying about parking and gas :-). This hotel has an excellent pool. The reason for 3 stars: * I opted for King-size bed and... More

We chose this hotel because of the other reviews and what we thought that we could get room wise for the money. This hotel is nice, the staff is nice, the pool is very nice, the pool side mini-restaurant is wonderful and our overall stay was very nice. The only thing that left us feeling slightly bothered was the fact... More

Before booking this hotel, we visited Country Inn and Suites, Four Points by Sheraton, and the Quality Inn amnd Suites. We viewed a room at each, and left. Enough said! When we entered this hotel, you could tell it was better maintained! We stayed 2 nights. The only noise we heard during our stay was at 9 in the morning... More

We ate 2 nights in the bar area of the Courtyard and both nights the food was really good. We are burgers, flatbread, chicken and they were all really well done. Many of our tour came here on...

We really enjoyed our overnight stay at the courtyard before our cruise. The hotel staff was so friendly and courteous and remembered me by name just after checking in.

Very nice location away from the beach so be ready to walk or ride up the street to the beach. Short of that they have a great pool, work out room and bar in the lobby. Rooms are clean and the property is fairly new. I enjoy cigars and found the patio out front very enjoyable.
