“RLC II”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

We were very pleased with the overall stay and would will be returning if we book another cruise with Royal Caribbean. The staff getting us to and from the ship, excellent. The staff accomodating all of us with a room to have a meet and greet and have drinks was great and well done with such short notice. The bartender was great in handling all of our food and drink needs and we hope to return with the RLC DF'ers in the future. Thank you so much for the honesty of the staff who found our cell phone on the incoming stay and returned it to us 4 days later on the returning stay. Very appreciated !

2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

We used miles to book this motel for a one nighter after our long flight since it is near the airport. We learned that this motel is used primarily by cruise ship travelers either before or after their cruise. They like it because they offer a courtesy shuttle to and from the airport and a low cost shuttle to the cruise ships.

The room we were in is in need if a major remodel. Cracked, old bathroom tile from the Nixon era and very worn bathroom vanity is a turn off. The walls are caked with numerous paint jobs and the rough chaulk repairs were done so crudely. My wife thought the mattress was too soft and saggy. The room and bathroom was fairly clean if you didn't look too hard. I didn't want to look too hard.

They do offer a complimentary continental breakfast: grits, orange slices, some pastries, toast, bagels, OJ, coffee, and Cheerios. For $5 they'll add eggs, bacon, potatoes, etc.

Wifi is free which was a plus and I noticed a pool. There is an in-house cafe and bar but we opted for dinner just down the road named the Rendevous at the Marina.

The motel is located next to a noisy overpass and next to an active railroad track so if you are a light sleeper, that could be an issue.

The reception staff went through the motions but not real cordial. I think there are better alternatives for lodging in the area.

I think the motel needed to be updated. The place looks old and outdated. The carpet in the rooms were old and worn out but the rooms were clean. The bathroom was nice and the bed was comfortable and made well. There was no service to take bags to your room but there was a cart you could use yourself. There was no food available late but you could order food from a local restaurant and have it delivered. If the motel takes some time to update the lobby and grounds it will be more presentable. The airport shuttle service was excellent and the staff was friendly.

Booked this room for pre cruise our room was absolutely disgusting the linens were so yellow especially the pillow cases from sweat and had a awful smell I was scared to take my shoes off thankful the stay was short. Shuttle service to port cruise ship was great and front desk staff was great!! Did not stay when we returned from cruise ship
