Room was clean and spacious. Decent gym, pool, recreation area, and free coffee and tea downstairs 24/7. Wi-fi was mediocre, but free. Works fine. Check in was fast/polite. No daily cleaning service or free breakfast since it is extended stay. If the price is right, don't hesitate. Ample parking

Hotel was dark . Seemed like it had a lot of long term occupants. Pool area was small with minimal seating. Would definitely not stay here again or recommend to anyone. Best part about it was the recreation center next door where my son and his teammates could play basketball.

It was a nice hotel and the staff was very friendly! The laundry facility was convenient but the dryers did burn some of our clothing. The pool could have been a little bigger for the size of the hotel.

The front desk staff was really friendly. The room was spacious, comfortably equipped with a kitchen, table and chairs, armchair and a great bathroom. Everything very clean. Great value for good price. You definitely need a car because there are no shops in walking distance,

This facility is at a convenient location with friendly staff and clean rooms. Close to beach & shopping but also quiet and out of the main traffic area and noise. Comes with helpful amenities that make for a nice stay.

Great bed, room clean and very comfortable, new appliances, microwave, refrigerator, sink and a little stove. Much better than other hotels I´ve stayed within this price range. Free laundry was perfect, since I had tons of dirty clothes. Friendly people and very nice location.
