“Smelled pretty bad”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Not worth the money. We stayed here the night before the cruise. It's just really a pretty crumby place to stay for the price. there were other places around here for the price that I probably should have went with. Oh well, lesson learned.

I was traveling with my elderly mother returning from a cruise. We were close to the beach and the hotel provided a nice breakfast buffet. It is on the Sun Trolley route and the Water Taxi pick up is about 2 blocks away. The rooms were updated and we had a balcony, very nice.

We stayed here with 2 children in mid April. The rooms were equipt with 2 queen sized beds and was newly refurbished. It was equipt with everything that we could need for our nights stay including, TV, Safe, hairdryer and fridge. There was plenty of space. The room didn't have a great outlook, but we're werent in there long enough to worry about it.
Only criticism with the room was the extremely noisy A/C unit - for all the noise it made you would have thought we were on an airport runway!
The lobby of the hotel was very dated which let it down slightly.

We had breakfast in the morning, which was well stocked and had a good variety.

Was a good 20 minutes walk for the main stretch of restaurants.

We arrived late in the evening (10:30) and were warmly greeted and quickly checked in. The room was gently lit and friendly. The comfort of the beds and the covers were better than home. ( in fact I copied the brand and model data ) Breakfast at the pool in the morning was a very pleasant way to start the day. The staff was helpful with local directions means of transportation. They suggested the water taxi tour to see the water side of the city and to get to and from dinner at stop 11. This saved a taxi ride and / or having to get the car from the garage.

We stayed here one night post cruise and wish we could have stayed longer. Bar is really cheap and service is very good. Room was lovely, we did not try the comp breakfast as we did not get up to pack to check out in time but I understand it is good. The beach is not too far away to walk and we preferred this hotel to the B Ocean which we used pre cruise. Goes to show - sometime more expensive does not mean better!!

Room Tip: Go for high floor overlooking the pool.

The price, at $130 including breakfast, parking, and tax, was the best deal for a beach hotel in this area. The hotel is not on the beach, but only a five minute walk away. The pool is very nice, and open until 11:00 pm. Our room was large and clean, including fridge, coffee maker, microwave, and safe. It appeared to be recently renovated.

Breakfast was the standard full breakfast you'll find at BW Plus, Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn Express, etc., but the difference at this hotel was the buffet was spread over a large space so we weren't always standing in line.

Hotel parking ($15/day) was no problem, and we went in and out as much as we wanted.

Only two complaints: Housekeeping knocked on our door at 8:45 AM asking if we were ready for the room to be serviced - too early for a beach hotel where most customers are on vacation. Also the front desk staff, while efficient, were not very polite or friendly. Several times they answered my questions without even looking away from their computer screens, and none of them ever cracked a smile. While checking us in, the clerk stopped serving us to have a conversation with the manager about another task she was assigned. And when a customer says, "Thank you," the polite answer is "You're welcome," not "No problem."

Room Tip: Our 2nd Floor room had a shared sunning balcony. Elevators are both in the front and back of the ho...

Lots of it... very inexpensive rooms that are very nice, clean, pretty decent pool and short, short, walk to the beach. Great low cost alternative to other places especially for shorter stays, layovers or trips that don't demand lap of luxury treatment...
