We have stayed here once before two years ago and loved it at that time. However, we came back here last week (August 2011) and it was terrible from the moment we walked into our room. First, we walked into our bathroom to find a dirty sponge still laying on the bathroom counter. Next, we wanted to go get some ice, but there was nothing left for us to get ice in. Next, I went to turn the light on next to the bed and it didn't work. I finally tried to complain via phone, but the I couldn't even hear thru it, so I went and complained to the front desk and they just apologized and brought us a few new bags to get our ice in. Okay, so we left to go walk the beach for a while and when we got back to our room, I was in the bathroom again standing at the sink and something behind me caught my eye in the mirror and I screamed for my husband and he came in and got it - A ROACH! So, we put it in a ziploc bag and take it to the front desk and they assure us that it's only a Palmetto bug, no harm they say. So, I say that it looks just like a roach to me, is it in the roach family? They say NO! They do agree to give us our first night free "for all our trouble", we go back to our room and I "Google" Palmetto bug and guess what?? It is a ROACH!! So, we ask for another room and they say they do not have anymore. We unwillingly stay anyway because we have no other option and a day's drive from home. So, we decided to cut our six day trip short and go back to TN! They did give us the first night free, but still charged us for the 2nd night. We will not go back to this hotel, and we do not recommend it! It is unbelievable to think that two years ago we loved it and this time, it was like we were at a totally different place. I don't know if it had to do with it being bought owned by Innisfree now instead of Hilton?!?
