The staff is nice, the outdoor part of the property is nice, and the location is good, but to give a hotel a good review you have to have decent rooms. These are not. Not to put too fine a point on it, they stink. It's a combo of BO, stale smoke (coming off guests over time, not smoking in the rooms, which is forbidden), the lack of renovation and/or deep cleaning in too long a time, and ridiculous amounts of perfumes used to try to cover it all. I'm not picky, but I almost couldn't stand it. It would be manageable if the windows would open, but they don't - you can't get any fresh air in here at all to clear out the stench.
There also were wall items (picture, mirror) missing, and there were open cuts in the ceiling for the sprinkler system, which made the room look even more run down. In the hall, there were patches all over the ceiling due to water leaks. Also, their towels were dingy gray - they either don't use bleach (and this is a town where people do go to the beach and track in dirt, so they should expect sand and such in their towels!) or they don't replace towels except once in a blue moon.
If view matters to you, don't pick this place. Ugly, ugly tanks and other industrial views will make you jealous of pretty Moody Gardens next door.
