“family visiting family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

I was very nervous as to what type of feel this hotel would have - it was really an excellent stay overall. Breakfast is $7.95 and the buffet is really good - this is coming from a person who does not "do" buffets. Kids under 12 eat FREE!
The hours the pool is open were not very clear - we were told until 11pm but then on Friday night we were told only till 9....we had been in the pool all week much later than 9pm and requested towels and there was no questions or issues what so ever. Not sure if the blues fest going on impacted the way the pool hours were managed or not?
The pool is HEATED which in this early season makes a huge difference.
All staff was friendly

Room Tip: Rooms on Higher floors provide a better view and remove you from any "noise" that might be...

We've stayed at this hotel several years in a row when it was Quality Suites. It's a beautiful hotel, beachfront and all balconies with free continental breakfast. They changed to Four Points this year - $10 breakfast and check in has been a mess. Rooms are not ready. There are several families waiting for a room. The hotel has been fully booked for months and is every year because of a music festival. We've been waiting over an hour. Check in started at 3:00 and it's now 4:45. Not a happy guest :( No one has offered any extras to make up for the long wait (not even a drink from the lobby cooler!). We'll see how things go the rest of the weekend. Hope they are better!!

We enjoyed every minute of our time here! Very clean and upscale for the money! Helpful and friendly staff! It is a busy area but not to bad to get in and out! Close access to the beach was a must and in walking distance to restaurants. We will defiantly be back!

This hotel is in a perfect setting! Just 20 minutes from the airport, and right on the beach. The staff was so friendly and helpful. We loved our room and the happy hour too! The weather was not great when we were there but that made no difference to us... thanks to the wonderful hotel.

Michaela, who was tending bar the night we checked out Four Points, was so wonderful that we decided to stay here on our next visit. So this review is of the bar only, but I'll weigh in later on the overall hotel experience. Lobby was enticing, as was the fire pit on the balcony, which Michaela lit for us even though it was an unusually blustery evening and we were the only ones out there. She went out of her way to make us welcome, and our overall impressions were very positive. Can't wait to return! By the way, they offer special rates for Mayo Clinic visitors.

I usually stay at Sheraton or Hilton properties when I travel, whether on business or pleasure. I booked this trip through the United website, while purchasing airline tickets. The value appeared good, and we were travelling with our Yorkie so we were pleased that they accommodated pets. There was nothing on the original listing that specified a pet fee. I specified we were bringing our pet on the reservation. When we checked in, no one mentioned any pet fee, again even though it was on the reservation and we had the pet with us. Several days into our visit, the girl who worked in the kitchen/bar area approached us while we were in the lobby, to say how cute our dog was. She then proceeded to ask us if we had a pet door hanger for our hotel room. I said no, we had not received one. At first I thought she was being nice when she offered to get us one and asked what room we were in. She then informed us that we would be charged a $35 a night pet fee. I felt very embarrassed and disrespected, due to the way she handled this. It seemed very odd that the waitress at the kitchen would go out of her way to approach us in this manner and then proceed to the hotel check in desk to confer with the woman working there.

I travel all the time and have no problem paying whatever the cost is for the place I stay. But this was the first time I had this type of encounter with a staff member at a Starwood property. Because of this woman's approach to us, we avoided using the restaurant and bar when she was working. Instead we went off the property for breakfast each day.

When I checked out, the computer system was off line, so it was not until I arrived home and received my bill that I saw the $35 + $2.45 a night pet fee was charged to my bill. This was an unexpected $225 cost that I had not anticipated. While I do not mind paying a pet fee, the cost here is higher than at other hotels.

The room was nice enough, the location is great and convenient to restaurants. The ice machines were broke on several floors while we were there. There were multiple days when the pool towels were unavailable. The pool area is very small, so not sure it would be that great in months when there are more travelers. There was not a lot of activity associated with the restaurant and bar, but perhaps it is better in warmer months when there are more people vacationing.
