Just spent Spring Break here. I was running a bit late due to some rental car trouble and called ahead to inform the staff, they were friendly and said it was no problem. Booked a non-smoking King Sized room, upon check-in it was exactly what I requested.
The environment is casual and normal. I usually take a look at the type of cars parked and they were all decent. The other members staying were some families and some spring breakers all polite and friendly - none of which looked ghetto or shady. The noise level wasn't too bad in the hallways, it's just that sometimes at night it would get a little loud because of some trucks in the parking lot (not sure what they were doing) although it did look shady outside at night once and was concerning (group of men hanging in the lot sort of near my car) however, in the morning everything was safe and sound with my car.
The room was clean and housekeeping changed the linens everyday as requested. Didn't try the breakfast so no comment on that. The heat and cool worked perfect. The tv was a nice flat panel. I'm very odor sensitive so thank God there wasn't any horrible smells and the hotel was ventilated well.
It's roughly 15 mins from the beach and 5 mins from I-90, around 20-25 mins from Miami Beach which is not too bad and if you're landing and leaving from FTL airport its 5 mins. There's a dunkin' donuts and few other great restaurants nearby at fair prices.
Overall, I didn't have a bad experience and would choose this place again if I'm on a budget. I usually stay in luxurious hotels (Embassy/Double Tree/Raddison) but if you're on a budget and you want to save some money, but not stay at some weirdo ghetto motel or hostel or shady places, this is your pick! For the $40 per night savings, definitely worth it.
