I see this has happened to many but I will write it again just to make sure it does not happen to another family. We also made reservations and they said they changed owners and we did not have a room and were very unhelpful. Left me and my 4 kids stranded on the beach with no room after a... More

We rented our room back in January. They charged the credit card that day. We get there on July 12th and we're told that because of new owners we had lost our reservation and there was no room for us. We were never informed about that and they definitely were never going to offer a refund for the $900 we... More

I see this has happened to others as well. We booked back in early Feb only to find out that they had no room for us when we arrived. They blamed it on PHR Goldkey who were the previous owners. I contacted them and they said that everything was transferred to LAP Group (Bharat Patel), the current owners. After doing... More

Got there said they changed owners so they did not have my reservation even though they charged my credit card 6 months earlier. Parking was a mess not enough spaces and took about 20 minutes to rock back and forth in and out of spaces. Did not clean the room until like 4 when I called and asked for clean... More

I booked my hotel back in feb i then canceled in march due to having surgery around the time of our family vacation. It took them 4 month to refund me my check because of it going under new management. I called them at least once a week and got the run around for ever. I dont care if they... More

Worst place ever. Don't give them your money. Booked a room in February drove 10 hours to get there and they did not give me my room. Said they changed owners and would not honor any bookings from previous owner. Made no effort to satisfy the situation. Crooks. Calling a lawyer for sure. Dolphin inn ruined my families vacation that... More

Stayed here for 4 days in June. They let us check in at 2. Room was clean and well stocked with towels. The location is great. Right across the street from pizza, ice cream, a $9.99 store and a pharmacy. There's a DQ on one side and a Sweet Frog on the other side. The amphitheater is also right beside... More

This is for the thrifty-vacationer, like me. I was a bit hesitant but the location was exactly where I wanted it to be. For the price of the hotel I would rate it Excellent, but overall it is an average hotel. The staff were pleasant enough. The cleanliness was sufficient, no major issues. The only thing that was a sore... More

One good thing about this rental was that we had a room! This is apparently a sister hotel to the Quality Inn, which was where my reservation was made. When I got to the Quality Inn to check in, they did not have a room for us. Reservations were made well in advance but they overbooked. They asked if we... More
