We were very pleased with the service from start to finish. The reception area was inviting. The employees were knowledgeable and eager to help. The overall experience was great and we plan to return.

Nice hotel, though I can't say I was pleased with all the conditions that are standard. Food and drink from outside vendors especially, but if you don't mind being forced to pay the extra for Fertitta's choice of everything then great. All and all the staff was friendly and helpful. The room was mostly clean, but very comfortable.

Had a nice get away here and the room was nice and comfortable. Enjoyed being on the boardwalk. Most of the shops was closed which was bad as it was 80 degrees and sunny while we was there. Couple of the restaurants was closed and the little booths on the boardwalk was closed.

As mentioned earlier: water leak, roaches as well as noise that seem like a barking dog. Told the front desk when we checked out of these issues. Our other peers has unwrapped condoms under the bed. For what the rooms were you would have thought it was a motel.

Easy checkin procedure with them letting us in a few hours early with no penalty. Very friendly staff and good parking area. The room was plenty big enough for us and the balcony view was excellent. With a comfy bed and a great coffee maker, how much more could you ask for?

Family hotel in resort area. Kids running hard, screaming and banging around in the room directly above and in hallways. Should ask for a top floor room at end of hallway to minimize some of the noise. Parking for check in was inconvenient.

Staff very friendly, rooms perfect, the nights overlooking square with a cocktail is as good as you could ask for. The restaurants are many to choose from and an evening at the aquarium lounges is a nice end to the night
