“Nice place, but dont expect any ocean or marina views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Nice hotel, refurbished and clean. Nice and accommodating staff.
Only disappointment was that they did not have any ocean/marina view rooms; seems like those are for the time share units?? DId not eat here, so could not comment on this.
The marina nearby had some nice small restaurants; the Fish and Chip place was great.

Room Tip: Choose a higher floor room to prevent noise from the bar

Stayed here for a night and it was absolutely fantastic! The staff were extremely friendly and fun and were so helpful. Was so nice to see a fellow australian there - Jo had one of the best smiles ive seen and was super friendly. Katrina made us some amazing drinks during happy hour and provided some great recommendations about the food - buffelo wings = amazing!! The room was heaps bigger than I expected, was super clean and the shower had great pressure (which is always a bonus!) The beach was just a short stroll away with plenty of good eateries to choose from. Overall I had a great night here and would highly recommend anyone to stay here. Enjoy :)

We stayed here accidentally as the hotel that we booked was oversold and they sent us here. The rooms are very clean and the staff throughout the hotel are extremely nice. It's more of a business hotel and I wouldn't hesitate to stay again if I had to. The best part of the stay were the nice people who worked here. Shout out to the tall Hispanic guy. Super nice and brought us new towels when we were at the pool. The wifi was fast and free which is always nice.

this hotel isn't the best location and not exactly kid friendly (no bath tub) but the rooms are clean and the staff was helpful. rooms on the harbor side are quieter. the free coffee in the morning is good.

Room Tip: get a room on the harbor side

We have started here 4 times before and always had a great experience. The front staff were professional and helpful. The bed in our room was not comfortable for me (though I have neck and back problems from a car accident). We had breakfast at the hotel restaurant because we have always been happy with the quality of the food there. This morning, was not good, however. My bacon was literally burned black and my eggs, which I ordered over hard, were barely over easy. When it was brought to the server's attention, he just said OK, took my plate and brought the check with all charges. He did not offer to replace the food nor to take the charge off. We would stay here again only because of previous good experiences. If I had to base my opinion off of this stay alone, I would be hard pressed to pay that kind of money again.

The staff is wonderful and very helpful. Rooms are large and very clean. The location is good, just a short walk to the harbor and beach, and right off Interstate 5. Great place to stay, will stay there again and will recommend it to all my friends. We enjoyed our visit very much.

I stayed here last year and this time, I figured why not?

I really like the staff here. They're so on top of things and really nice. The hotel is near a good amount of things. It's literally walking distance down to the Marina. It's easy to find and parking isn't ever a problem. The room was nice, a good size. I really liked this hotel.
