The hotel was clean and the bed was comfortable. Their breakfast was great and they even had a free pancake dinner in the evening. It's a short walk to the beach and we really enjoyed the place. The biggest negative was one of the two elevators was down. This made for a long wait and the note on the elevators... More

I wanted to take my kids to the beach this summer. We chose this hotel because of it's close proximity to the beach without the "on the beach" prices. With all the reviews raving about the pool I was a little worried the beach wouldn't be that great. No problems there! The walk to the beach is about 2 blocks... More

The location was okay, beach near. Unfortunately there was only one working elevator and it would take several weeks for the part to come in. WiFi was terrible, had to keep signing on to it. Breakfast was average. They had pancakes after 8:30pm for a late snack which my 10yr.old took advantage of. Overall, I would probley stay at another... More

The rooms are very big and the beds are comfortable. Breakfast offered each morning has something for everyone.We booked this hotel 2 months in advance but ended up on the first floor next to the stairs and main exit. Guest kept slamming the doors and our door would shake like someone was trying to get in and it scared my... More

My stay here was awesome! First off, the staff is so nice and friendly. They immediately let me know that I could always ask for any recommendations on places to eat or shop in the area. My room was very clean! The pool is great! A short walk to the beach. It's not super close to all the shops, but... More

I like that the rooms are clean. Also like that that staff is very courteous. Alma at the front desk did a great job of referring us to several restaurants and a fishing trip. I felt very much at home and plan to stay there again next time I am in SPI.

This is my second review of this hotel. The rooms are still comfy, the complimentary breakfast buffet is still good, but the WIFI was very slow this time. Nevertheless, prices here(I stayed over a weekend) were quite reasonable compared to the Hilton Garden Inn, a few buildings down. This hotel is only a 5 minute walk to the beach.

This place is located within a 3min walking distance to the beach. (On a sidewalk & a paved street). No problems getting to the beach from hotel. Just remember if you want to hear more of the ocean and less of the booming from stereos - go to the right when you reach the beach. There are chair rentals with... More
