“Visited during Tropical Storm Debby”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

We flew in during the tail end of the tropical storm, having never stayed on the Gulf Coast before and expecting placid blue water. The hotel beach was flooded and the surf was unbelievable - we (dangerously, probably) had a ball for hours bodysurfing in the stormy water. The property itself was perfect for my two teenage sons, husband and I. Our rooms were adequate size, the full kitchenette and bathroom were not huge but large enough not to feel cramped, and the daily housekeeping service was reliable and kept-us well stocked with plenty of towels and amenities. I must mention the staff - they were friendly and helpful, and amused us with their suggestions and personality. The pools were nice, bar was small but friendly with a nice bartenders, and the patio with grills was a great place to hang out. I would definitely go back. Although not luxe, it was a really wonderful value.

Room Tip: Go for the "deluxe Gulf-front" rooms, If you like a bigger balcony, specify it. Some of...

Booked a trip chose Alden from a pick and it started as a nightmare. Arrived at midnight and unpacked then water gushed from hotel ceiling, moved us to a room with a room air condition unit which was molded and the room stunk and it wasn't a pool side room which is what we paid for then moved us to another room since the mold was so bad and opened door and cockroach was staring at me from the counter, so we said enough is enough just give us our money back since the manager home in bed wanted to "take care of things tomorrow" which by the way this was happening at 1 am finally the manager came to the hotel to "take care of things" took us to the next building over from our original destination and it was beautiful clean up to date and had a beach front view. The manager did help but we still went to bed at 4 am and slept until 11 am the next day bc of the mental exhaustion. I won't stay here unless I take the "beach front view building" oh yeah...elevator went out of service today!

Room Tip: Choose the beach front building if a good $$ deal otherwise choose another resort

This was a family trip. We had such a great time. The Hotel is on the beach! it was GREAT! The hotel room accomodated the 6 of us comfortably for sleeping. We had a first floor, beach view unit so the kitchen was small but the view ad location of the room were perfect. The beachfront units are great, literally just a few steps away from the beach. I would go to the beach every night to read my book. There are laundry facilities on property so it was nice not to take any dirty, sand filled clothe back home. The area is really nice and we really enjoyed the pier, it was a 10 minute drive from the hotel.

Room Tip: If you want to be beachfront the first floor units are best. There are a few more levels of beachfro...

Everything about the accommodations was perfect and the employees were all very friendly. We spent lots of time every day on our balcony overlooking the beach and Gulf. We will definitely be back!

We rented 2 units. Units could use some updating, but they were clean and on the beach. It was satisfactory, but we usually get much more for our money. The staff were very helpful and laundry prices very good.

Room Tip: Would only chose a room with a balcony.

The rooms are old for what you get for the price. We will be looking for a different place to stay next time we spend the weekend over that way. The staff were very helpful in pointing us to good places to eat and drink.
