Stayed here for 4 nights. Not once did our room get cleaned. We had to go downstairs everytime we needed toilet paper or fresh towels and ask for it. We finally just started putting our trash outside our door just to get it out of the room. We were on the 11th floor and the elevators were awful. It would... More

Black mold on the walls, peeling paint, dirty grout, previous guests dirty sweatshirt still on floor..... I could go on and on. Manager... More

We looked at room when we got there and it looked nothing like the pics online (will read reviews next time). Room was horribly outdated/neglected/smelled of urine, couch was wet with moisture,...

It was a last minute choice but a good one. After leaving a nightmare the staff at the reef helped changed our vacation. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. Yes it's a older hotel but the room and pools was clean and comfortable. We will stay again and tell my family and friends about the hotel. Can't wait to... More

We stayed at room 110 for 4th of July weekend. The room was okay for the price and we were only going to stay one night. Turns out that the walls aren't sound proof and all night it sounded like the wall was going to fall. There was what it seemed like a hotel equipment room right behind our room.... More

The lobby, pools, and rooms are clean and nice size. Unfortunately, the other guests around us were loud and obnoxious at 3 am and the staff neglected to correct the problem once brought to their attention:/

We had a 2 bedroom suite, which was great to accommodate our family of 6. It was the same room we had been in 2 years ago when we here. One of the TVs did not work properly but it was a problem with the Time Warner Cable line and nothing that the hotel could do but call TWC and... More

The hotel needs to be renovated. Its dark and dirty and the front desk staff is extremely rude. My room flooded and I was moved to another room. This room was worse than the room that flooded. I was told by management I would receive a refund. They lied. The wifi does not work. Save your money and do not... More

My family and I have been coming for the past 5 years. The Reef is always clean. The pool and hot tubs are good too. We are here until Friday. This time it is quiet and family oriented. They are enforcing the rules which I understand. The only bad things I feel are some guests being rude!
