We stayed here during the week during off season. We had the lovely heated pool all to ourselves most of the time. The tropical landscaping around the pool gives such a secluded feeling to it. The desk personnel were always polite and kind. The location worked well for us. We walked to dinner several nights. The breakfast was a bit... More

Good location, close to spi night life. Lots of parking. Couple Bad things were WiFi is not good, neither is the water pressure. Pillows and bed not too comfortable and wish breakfast was served at least until 10am. But overall, pretty nice hotel. Jacuzzi in room and heated pool. Would stay here again.

We have enjoyed our stay here tremendously! The staff are all friendly and do a great job of keeping the hotel clean. We stayed in a queen room with a kitchenette overlooking the Laguna Madre bay. Centrally located to everything. The rates are friendly as well. Breakfast consists of make your own waffles, scrambled eggs,sausage,biscuits and gravy. For early risers... More

Upon arrival, I re-read reviews of the hotel, and I feel as though our room was sub-par compared with many other reviewers' experiences. I am relatively kind when traveling outside the states in regard to accommodations, but my stateside expectations are a bit higher. Unfortunately, I'm disappointed that my experience was not the same as a lot of the reviews... More

The rooms were decent on a first glance. The pillows were small and rock hard. No ironing board or iron provided in rooms. Havent seen that in at least 10 years anywhere. We asked for extra towels since we had a family of 4 with 3 towels provided to shower and use the pool and had to explain why i... More

We were on first floor in accessible room. Very nice. Have stayed in several hotels at the Island and were not previously aware of this one based on the name. After checking in discovered that it used to be a Howard Johnson's which explained to me the nice decor. This trip was booked only a couple of weeks prior to... More

We got a great rate, good location, nice staff, good size room. Terrible wifi on the 2nd floor, we had to go down to the lobby to use wifi. Pillows are small & lumpy, take your own for the adults! Even with these 2 issues we would stay again!! The kitchenette has a 2 burner stove, a small fridge &... More
