Our team had a tournament cancel on the day we were to arrive due to weather. The customer service I received while cancelling the rooms was top notch. No problem at all! Paula was amazing. It is nice to deal with people that are engaged and understanding! We will be back!

The hotel was very good. The breakfast was excellent. The person that took care of us in the front desk was a true gentleman and eager to please. Location was 10 minutes from the beach and close to restaurants.

If you are looking for a great pet friendly hotel, this is the place! Close the the dog friendly beach this place has it all. Clean and comfortable. My only problem is that it is popular and sometimes if we don't book in advance we can't get a room!

The room was average, bathroom floorboards and tub grout was gross.... the breakfast was gross, eggs were floating in water, sausage was almost cold. Staff was nice, WiFi was way slow. My room was on the third floor above the pool. I could hear every person out there until they left the pool. AVERAGE stay.

Wifi sucks here. Don't plan to use it to get work done. Rooms are clean and beds ok, but things like carpet, AC unit, etc have seen better days. Nice breakfast spread. Hallways and rooms have odd smell. Water pressure meh in shower. Rooms have fridge and microwave which is great. Convenient to 75.
