“never again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Stayed at this hotel per a coupon from a vendor at work, I am sure they didn't research before selling. Very confusing to find front desk and then walked forever to find the elevator. It is not a handicapped friendly hotel as my spouse had to walk a ways just from the handicapped parking spot. Oh yea, they charge you 3.00 (18.00 total) more to park handicapped. Even the hotel down the road is free for handicapped and 33.00 for valet. The hotel needs some major upgrades it is smelly and rundown. Now if you look from beachside it looks nice. The hotel bar/restaurant upstairs had friendly staff. All I can say is thank goodness for the boardwalk.

the price was right the room was clean .the beach is just out the door.the pool and hot tub very clean. jimmy max's hideaway has awesome food .parking is a paid per day lot 15.00 aday .the hotel adds a 10.00 per day resort fee to your bill when you get there. there is valet parking for 18.00 aday recommended the parking is safer less chance of a dent in your new car !!!
the hallway near owner held rooms smells a little like cigerette smoke but your only staying overnight so get over it.the beach makes up for it. security is 24 hrs so your safe walking through the building.we would say again!! dont let all the negative feedback discourage you ... have a great trip

I have been staying here now for about 3 years when I travel down to South Florida a very good hotel and the staff is very friendly, and very clean rooms, never a problem. This is a very good hotel would recommend too any travelers, it is also very location friendly to the beach and the boardwalk.

Property is very confusing. Hard to find and then once there it took me a little bit to find the actual front desk for the hotel. Staff was helpful, security very good. Hotel is very old and really needs updated. Room was very small and disappointing. Even saw a cockroach in the bathroom. However, the next day, a sign was posted saying the fifth floor was going to be sprayed for bugs. Nice pool area. Liked being on the Broadwalk close to alot of good restaurants. Did not like the food at the hotel restaurant. Will not stay at this resort again.

No Pickup at the Cruiseport. The Hotel in general is a dump. Our flight left the next morning at 7:00, but the shuttle only starts at 7:00am, so much for a free shuttle. So we would have to get a cab. Arrived at noon and rooms were not ready...that's ok they gave us towels and sent us to the Fitness Room to change. Impossible to find, and it was a disgusting gym. Smelled, holes in the walls and ceilings, old equipment. The pool is really nice. It was big and heated. The Hot tub was the highlight of the trip. 104+ Degrees. It was nice to walk across the boardwalk to the Ocean. Our room was ok, but old and very dated. The bed was comfortable. I wouldn't stay here again for $160 + the BS $10 Resort Fee.

Stayed at the Hotel. property is very confusing. Hard to find (had to call twice to figure out where i was going) and then once there it took me a little bit to find the actual front desk for the hotel. Evidently there are several properties that are involved and you have to choose the right one. Front desk was in a temp location not even in the hotel. Staff very nice. Security is good. This was important since i was traveling alone. Hotel is very old, but the rooms had everything i needed.
One nice part was the bar/restaurant O'Mally's. Food was really good and the service was wonderful. Sat at Bar since i was alone and the bartender was the "do all". She was wonderful!

Old hotel and resort on the beach. Has condo units and hotel units. Convenient location on the boardwalk and steps to the sand. Showing its age. Rented a 1 bedroom unit from an owner who has a dozen there. Clean, but even though it faced the ocean, you had to sit next to the small window to see the beach. Windows did not open, so even with moderate winter weather, we couldn't enjoy the sound of the surf and the warm breezes. It looks like they have started replacing all the windows while we were there though. Interesting diverse clientele. The price was moderate for the location, but if you are used to more modern American Hotels, you may be disappointed. Nice pool and spa area, and they do have a gym for your use. There is a seedy element to the area, but seems safe enough. Close walking distance to some good restaurants including Billy's Stone Crab Restaurant across the street (awesome!).
