The room wasn't awful, but we had an iffy experience.
The location was great, right across the street from the beach and perfectly easy to cross. It was also a less busy area than Gulfport and Biloxi which I liked.
Check-in went smoothly and our room looked comfortable and clean upon arrival.
We thought it was odd that the coffee pot was in the bathroom. Not sure if all the rooms are like this, or if anyone else thinks this is strange considering there are other places it could go?
Our showers were anything but enjoyable, although I did alert the front-desk upon checking out. The tub was not draining properly and I was standing in about 4" of water during my shower. I was not very pleased with this. I did not call them at the time, because it was probably 9-10pm and I was already showering. Plus we were only staying the one night. As I said, I told them about it when I was checking out, so hopefully they had a plumber come and fix the issue.
We did not take advantage of the complimentary breakfast so I cannot say anything about this.
Oh, I also thought it was weird that there were only 4 pillows on the king bed. I'm not too picky but it looked very bare and silly when we walked in, and an additional 1-2 pillows would have been nice for sleeping.
We were staying here during a road trip across the South and this was probably my least favorite hotel. I think we were just unlucky in the room though. Overall, the hotel seemed nice and clean and in a great location. I would consider staying here again, but may browse at other hotels in making my decision.
