We have used this hotel year after year for our vacations because the staff is super friendly and the hotel has many kid activities. it's a bonus that it is within walking distance to the beach as well as walking distance to the other resort offerings. Absolutely recommend giving this hotel a try.

First, the location of this hotel is great. Very central and easy to get in and out of. All of the staff are very friendly and outgoing. They never let you walk by without saying hello or how is your day going. One that really stands out is John, who works at the front desk. He made checking in and...

The room was clean, with a nice sitting area outside. An on-site restaurant is a great option for breakfast. The real gem of the stay was the transportation to and from the ship. Debbie is a friendly, knowledgeable driver and even made suggestions for local dining. Several restaurants and a good sized grocery store are also within walking distance.

My husband and I stayed here the night before we left on our cruise. The staff was wonderful and we were upgraded to a suit before we even checked in, but when we checked out we were charged about $150 more than quoted originally. The lady who checked us out basically told us there was nothing we could do. We...

So, this place has the exterior walkways and the old styling of a very old Motel. It is kept pretty clean though, so not a big deal. The staff is outwardly nice enough but it feels insincere, as if they are not terribly happy in their work. The breakfast buffet was tasty enough, but it felt overpriced for the limited...

The hotel was in a great location with a pretty view and an amazing swimming pool. However, we booked the room for $500 for a few nights. We got there, and the man at the desk insisted that the room would only be $300-400... Then they charged us $600. A couple days later, they refunded it. Then they gave us...

We are Holiday Inn people. Holiday Inns, HI Express and so on. This one was a bit of a let-down. It was just okay. The location was great and the price was reasonable enough.
