Room was very clean. Bed felt great after a 500 mile drive. Breakfast wasn’t great. They had make your own waffles but no other hot foods. Cereals, pastries, fruit, all the regular stuff. The location is in the middle of the downtown area and it’s easy to get anywhere in town

How old do you have to be to check in?
Do you have pet free rooms ? From what I read there seems to be a lot of people with pets staying there . Due to severe allergies I need a room that dogs ( or cats) have not occupied !
You should probably find another hotel... it is a pet friendly. :-)

Is the hotel on the beach? Is it safe to leave pets in the room alone for a few hours?
The hotel is not located on the beach. We are a short 5-10min drive to Lido Beach, which is the closet beach to the hotel. Your pet may stay in the room as long as it is not causing a disturbance. If a problem arises with noise due to the pet you will notified and asked to come pick up the pet.

"Bath tub clogged"
"First floor, handicapped room, surprisingly very quiet."
"Sink in the bathroom would be best"
"Even numbered rooms face the back (with canal view) and are quieter due to no street noise."
"If you like to sleep during the day you should avoid this hotel. Because I heard a lot dogs barking during the day."
