I stayed at this hotel in the offseason (late April 2013). Paid $95 for a suite...super value! Had a terrific room overlooking the ocean/pool. Clean, well furnished, TV was just "OK" but it not a big deal because I didn't spend a bunch of time in the room.
Hotel is across the street from the Family Kingdom amusement park which for me was neither good or bad. First, it was off season so the crowd wasn't too large and I was solo so I didn't have to be concerned about entertaining kids. If you're traveling with kids during peak season this location could be a huge benefit. Not so much if you're looking for some quiet time.
Staff let me check in early, a huge plus, because I had a rather tiring trip to get there. I was so thankfulI didn't check out the room location. Bad move since it was next to the elevators. Also...it was overlooking the pool which was entertaining during the day...not so much at 1:30AM when the pool party started. So much for sleeping with open sliding doors with the surf putting me to sleep.
Overall I'd rate this hotel as a keeper...depending on the current room rates.
Regarding room location if I were to return I'd definitely get a room on the ocean side as far away from the elevator as possible.
