The hotel is reasonably priced and has great access to the beach, with umbrellas and chairs that you just charge to your room tab. The outdoor and indoor pool and outdoor mini "lazy river" were clean and fine for us to play in, and the indoor jacuzzi was great for warming up after a storm on the beach.
The breakfast buffet was just adequate. They ran out of the good stuff, and the lines were very long. The stations could use some reorganizing. However, we eat light for breakfast so it didn't really affect our family.
One unusual thing for this hotel chain: the front desk only had cookies out ONCE when we passed by (and not at check-in) the entire time we were there, which was 6 days in July! I guess I should be glad--less temptation!
As mentioned by some other reviewers, the staff does seem a bit stiff and grouchy, and there are very few smiling faces seen, especially among the women and older men. We travelled south, but no hint of southern hospitality here!
If you are just looking for a clean room near the beach and you are going to run around sightseeing all day like we did, this place will be just fine. Clean, some breakfast, pools and the beach--who needs cookies and smiles?
