Saw all the perfect reviews lately for this hotel so I decided to book. Big mistake. Either they're fake reviews or the people exaggerated ALOT. Wifi sucks, rooms are average, NO beach access. Takes 5 minutes to get to the beach if I cut through a neighborhood house. People before me mention the great views. Idk about them, but I'm... More

I used a Chase Visa free night to stay here and was upgraded to a spa suite which was very nice. I arrived at 1:30PM and was told I could not check in yet and was told check in was 3:00PM. I showed back up at 2:30PM and was given a room. The pool was clean and nice, but always... More

This hotel is immaculate, the service is fantastic and the staff are superb! The breakfast was a nice bonus, every day a warm meal and friendly staff. The rooms were spacious, very clean and the ceiling fans are great for those like me who want maximum cool. Few hotels are able to train staff to be truly hospitable. This one... More

This is a great hotel with very accommodating and friendly staff. We stay at a different hotel every summer. This place is missing a few beach amenities to make it one of the best. The one thing I really missed was not having a balcony to store all our beach gear and hang swimsuits and towels from. We were able... More

I've stayed in most of the island hotels and condominiums. This is my favorite. The lobby, dining area and guest rooms were clean and freshly painted. The staff calls me by name. The breakfast is legendary. The breakfast staff is not only competent; they are kind and look for ways to help. The manager goes out of her way to... More

Our family stayed here over the long 4th of July weekend and I would recommend it to any body looking for a place on SPI. The staff/management was always friendly (always greeted us when we walked in/out). They even remembered that I mentioned it was my birthday!!!! The rooms were very clean and the house keeping staff was very courteous.... More

We stayed here because it included breakfast and was relatively close to the beach. Overall it was okay. It is located on the north side of town near the convention center.

Reasonably priced given the beach proximity - 5 min walk thru the back of the property gets you there. There is always a guy offering umbrella and chairs for rent (~ $25/day for 2 chairs/1 umbrella) You can walk to the Sea Turtle Rescue Center and the Bird Center - they are right across the street! Beds are medium to... More
