This place was happening and fun to be at. The dog was welcome and we had a great time staying at this place. The restaurant had a great atmosphere, good food and good service. The staff at the hotel and marina were friendly and nice.

I came here to stay because Elvis stayed here while filming Follow that Dream, although i understand it may have been the adjoining older building..no matter, it was pleasant stay and a comfortable room and had a good vibe, the restaurant round the corner on the grounds of the hotel, at which you could have breakfast, and Captain Michael's Manatee...

OK, let's start with the not so great: The hotel is older, the decor is out of date. So what? Are you really travelling to a fabulous location to stay in your room? You have a great view, the campus is small and really convenient, and the extras (Tiki Bar, restaurant, marina) are all top notch and only a few... More

The staff had to move our room from the front side to a higher building because they expected a 6 ft. storm surge from Hurricane Hermine and high tide. They certainly knew best, in the morning we had water knee deep everywhere except at our building and second floor units, the electricity had gone off during the early morning hours.... More

Not much! Old and dated. Our room leaned at about a 7 degree slope. They need to update bedding. Leave the lights on so the bugs don't get you. The only reason it got 2 star is we made it out alive!! The restaurant was pretty good but I don't think it was affiliated with the "resort".

We didn't know what to expect when we made the reservation, but was pleasantly surprise when we went to our room. By far it was not the crown plaza, but the room was very clean (I wipe everything down upon arrival.), spacious, had a fridge and microwave. The biggest surprise was our room was centered in the middle of the... More

We love this place! Every room has a patio or balcony on the water and the views are amazing. We can drop the boat into the water onsite and there is plenty of room to park the trailer. The rooms are very basic but there is a restaurant, tiki bar and dive shop on the property. Everything you need for... More

I have stayed here several times and I will say that it is not a five star hotel, but a very affordable, clean place with FANTASTIC views of the springs. Very well worth the money. Make sure you take time out to walk to the seawall or the boardwalk on site for the sunsets, beautiful!! Also very close to stores,... More

Well, the location is PERFECT. Our boys had fun fishing off the dock, watching the boats and eating at the restaurant. They have a boat ramp and dock right there. The clerks in the front were very nice both days. The wifi signal was good in our room. The yikes side... breakfast was coffee, powdered creamer, banana, apple or wrapped... More
