This hotel is good for one night. Rooms were clean and spacious. Bed and pillows were alright. Pool was non existent (tiny and not inviting). Two strip clubs within walking distance and super shady people lingering around. Worried about our Tahoe getting broken into. Einstein's bagels Jamba Juice and Starbucks across the street as well as an elementary school.

The room was nice, everything was clean and the rooms are good size! I got the king size bed and its pretty comfy. I'll definitely be back when... More

This hotel was so accommodating and they had a shuttle to the ship for only $10 each which was convenient. We got to leave our car for the entire cruise at a small fee. Staff very nice.
