We checked into this hotel for an overnight before a cruise, despite the negative reviews that I had read. Our flight arrived at 6:00 AM. We were met by a very cheerful van driver, just starting his day. He told us that while they have a full restaurant in the hotel, and snacks at the bar, the hotel offers a free shuttle to a nearby shopping center with other good restaurants. We arrived at the hotel, the lobby was very clean and inviting. A bar sets in the lobby that serves Starbucks. The first pot of the day was brewing and the lobby was filled with the aroma. We had planned on sitting by the pool waiting for our room to become available.
A very cheerful desk person greeted us, welcoming us and offering to get us some of that coffee. I told her that we had just flown in from LA and were beat. She turned to the auditor and told her that we needed our room early. She quickly and efficiently got us checked in and up to our room.
After a power nap, we came downstairs and relaxed out at a nice clean pool. We enjoyed a couple of drinks from the bar then set out to walk over to a nearby sporting goods store. A bit of a walk, but not too far.
Later we hopped into one of the vans and were whisked over to the shopping center. We ate at one restaurant then walked over to a little gem called Millers Ale House. Enjoyed a couple of frosty adult libations and called for the van back. The desk person told us it would be 20 minutes. Before we could finish our drinks, the driver walked in checking on us. He was so darn nice, zoomed us back to the hotel. We had a nightcap in the bar that was now bustling with patrons.
We got up the next morning and enjoyed a delicious FREE breakfast, served by some very warm friendly employees. The breakfast was perfect, fresh warm, cooks bringing out fresh food on a regular bases.
Each of the employees we dealt with we're outstanding. They seemed to genuinely care about us and the hotel. Really terrific people! The employees make this hotel!
I had one negative in this hotel. As we sat having lunch in the bar, terrific food and service. This couple comes into the bar and orders several drinks and lunch. The man was talking loudly with some business stuff that seemed like BS. I looked at the pair and thought that if I were working I would be Leary of them. But, the bar tender seemed to be keeping an eye on them as they kept ordering more drinks in quick succession. Darn if that couple didn't scoot out of the place, pulling the old dine and dash. I was pissed at myself that I hadn't warned the employees of my grifter suspicions. The employees were just too darn nice...
On our future cruises we will be staying at this hotel.
