My family and I stayed at this hotel from July 21 -July 24, 2012. The staff was very friendly and the staff was quickly willing to assist upon request. I booked this hotel with the request of a high floor. That request was made and we had excellent views of the Gulf. Below are a list of pros and cons.
-Great beach location
-Complimentary beach chairs (2)/umbrella (1)
-Beaches not crowded
-Hotel needs updating
-Rooms not very clean
-Must leave immediate area for good dining
The reviews on TA overall show very good; however, I rate this hotel average. If you are looking for just a place to sleep, this hotel is OK. If you are looking for great Gulf views, be sure to request a high beachfront floor. Enjoy!
