The location, the pool & the staff make this place acceptable but I do not think I will be back. There are not many "hotel" options here so we tried this place because it was on the beach. The beds were comfortable, we had a patio overlooking the beach, & the pool was great. (3 ft only) but the room... More

You walk into the hotel and your first impression is a clean reception area with very friendly staff. The girls at the desk were very helpful with suggestions on where to eat and places to see. They make you feel very relaxed and welcome. The layout of the hotel can be a little confusing but the rooms are clean and... More

Absolutely beautiful family-friendly hotel. Right on the beach with room facing the beach and ocean. We were in room 304. 2 queen beds, kitchenette, balcony with table and chairs on it. Extremely clean and had good service while we were there. They did forget to replace the dish towels after we used them and they took them to launder, but... More

This was a last minute vacation for my family before my son went back to school. We have not had a vacation in many years so we were very excited. We were not disappointed by anything during our stay. The location of the hotel was just minutes from many of the different attractions offered in the area. The parking lot... More

Not only did the maintenance guy(Wes) offer to give me a jump start, he took me to Walmart to buy jumper cables. Then gave me a jump. Really nice guy!! Won't find that... More

Hotel had clean rooms and a friendly, helpful staff. It was located right on the beach with two pools (indoor and outdoor) as well. Restaurant food was good but they need a hostess and better organization.

Stayed in room 99, room is arranged where the bed is right next to the interior hallway and elevator. There was so much noise that it kinda ruined the stay. Avoid room 99! Room was very dated, but not bad at all. The beach was nearly on top of the hotel. When we arrived there was a roach on the... More
