Dissappointing! we booked a two night stay in a king room using Groupon / Travelzoo for $386. We arrive on a Sunday at 11am , we are told check-in is 3 , come back then. nothing to do at the hotel , the common area is the size of my livingroom and it has a couch - table -tv. we return at 3 ,room ready and OMG - the hallway and room have an overpowering perfume smell - a king bed , a chair and a small "garage sale" dresser .. thats it. room was smaller than a bedroom in my house. We requested a larger room , were told if we paid $80 a night more they would move us up ,even though the 92 room hotel was almost empty(sunday) no free upgrade. bed mattress shot - room dated - feather pillows provided when requested -poor tv reception - ugg.we checked out the next morning even though we paid for 2 nights and when leaving the hotel staff only said " you are checking out a day early ? do you want to leave your resturant charges on the credit card we have on file?" no " is there something wrong - or what can we do to improve your experence ". If you stay on the island and want a fond memory of the experence do not stay here. They get your money and that's all they care about.
