This hotel came personally recommended by a coworker. Had I read the reviews I probably wouldn't have stayed. HOWEVER, it was wonderful and an answer to a much needed mini vacation away with the family. First, I was worried about arriving early...no problem, waited 10 minutes while they finished a room and they adjusted. They noticed we had kids so asked if we would rather be poolside and on bottom floor. Our room was on first floor towards front of hotel. The room was clean. There were no signs of bugs (as I have read in other reviews) that are actually common to florida and especially beach side. I felt safe in leaving towel in door so kids could go in and out to get a snack or drink from the firdge (that was in perfect working order). The atmosphere was wonderful and friendly. Other guests interacted and was a great environment for the kids to play. We met several other families and socialized. There are a couple of restauraunts just a 1.3 mile walk along the beach. We did this twice for dinner and my husband did it for breakfast once. At one of them kids eat free on Thursday and they had spongebob and bounce houses set up. There was a market store just across the street on the corner. It was a bit pricey but we made do. Next time (and there will be a next time) we will just stop at publix on our wasy into town. Overall the stay was fabulious. Although we couldnt open windows to hear the ocean each morning i did wake up to hearing the waves. The hotel is older but it is obvious the owners are working on that. Whatever we needed it was fixed. my boys and husband needed tv to go to sleep and of course they needed the remote, LOL. It needed reprogrammed and housekeeping did it as soon as we asked. If you are looking for a peaceful getaway where you can just relax an not worry about what is at home or even whether your kids are doing something wrong this is the place for you. Pool is in great condition and maintained ( I am a certified lifeguard, INSTR, and pool manager). Highly recommend unless you are expecting the Hilton, if you are, go there!!!!
