We stayed here for 3 nights prior to leaving on a cruise. As we had a rental car, it was a good base for going to beaches and visiting Anhinga Trail (Everglades). Hotel is a bit older, but room was comfortable, a bit small'ish but okay, and had a fridge, and our room overlooked a man-made lake with interesting water birds to watch (which our child especially delighted in). When we got early to breakfast was best, as we could get a good table together with a sunny window view; coming later was crowded and we had to wait for a table, and would have to "grab it fast", so it would not be cleaned. Breakfast starts being put away RIGHT at closing time, so keep that in mind if you are a late comer or want to get seconds. There was always something to choose from to get us all going (some days were better than others). Big plus is having real dishes and cutlery (thank you!). Self-serve laundry available, which we used, no problems. I enjoyed the pool one night late evening and had it all to myself. Bonus was the Kohl's next door for shopping - and I believe there was a small Winn-Dixie across the road. Numerous restaurants within short driving distance - Cuban, coal fired pizza, Middle Eastern, etc. A small thing - they did not have warm cookies in the lobby like some other CI & S, but just cheap, store-bought ones in a jar. I saved on calories but the others were disappointed :) Overall a good stay and we would stay again as a base.
