We wanted a nice long weekend in a hotel near water with some sort of kitchen set up. We picked this hotel cause it came as a "featured" hotel when I searched for hotels in Hutchison Island. We got a small studio on the second floor. I'll just give the run down in bullets:
- run down and very dated unit with slanted floor that made me think I was in a Batman episode.
- no amenities other than soap. no tissue box, no alarm clock, nada.
- only one small wobbly table with a lamp next to the bed that was jammed up against a wall.
- terrible bed with an indentation so deep in the middle we kept rolling into each other all night long. it was like sleeping in a taco.
- poor lighting throughout.
- one a/c unit high in the wall. since the controls are all on the top you have to drag a chair over to climb up to be able to reach the knobs which you can barely see.
- the kitchen's setup was THE BARE ESSENTIALS: some plates, silverwear and about 4 plastic cooking utensils: all huge spoons, no spatulas!! 2pots and 1 frying pan. that's it.
- living room had two cushioned easy chairs and the tv. no tables or anything to put a drink down on.
- their continental breakfast was granola bars, packaged danishes, horrible coffee and OJ. that's it. it was ridiculous actually that they call that a breakfast.
The only good thing I can say about this place is that the dock was nice to go out on and feed the pelicans. We left early and will never be back.
