Greeted by Adrainne, she wasn't very welcoming, customer service skills need to be developed . But later on I met Nicole at the reception desk and she was awesome! Exuberant, vivacious and she just seemed to genuinely care!
Housekeeping personnel were equally attentive and provided requested items promptly! The room was nice and clean but I sure didn't like the view- county buildings parking lot !
I did have dinner on site, ordered the marinated skirt steak to be prepared " medium" it came practically raw yuck !
Didn't have an opportunity to inform server since I didn't see him again until towards the end, ate the French fries and broccoli , bread and butter wasn't served and I finally received a second cup of coffee as I paid the bill! I won't be eating there again ! But being on Ocean street allows you access to other restaurants within walking distance !
The pool and exercise areas were nice. Landscape was well kept, it's been re- opened 7 months now and the area is kept pretty clean! The price seemed high because the rooms are basic--log for table, old boards on wall...rather rustic for my taste!
