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

Friendly staff, large clean rooms, balcony with a view and GREAT location. Loved the fact we could walk to restaurants, shopping and beach (and we took advantage of that). Price was very good also. Would love to see rooms updated. Would come back.

My fiancée and I stayed here for 6 nights last summer and we loved it! We got the double queen room with a beautiful view of the bay side. Not super close to the beach, but we didn't mind the 5 minute walk. Great breakfast, friendly staff, & we are totally booking again this summer!

Company's website price can't be beat. Beds were very comfortable and the rooms were spacious. Desk clerks were very pleasant and helpful. Two choices of breakfast that come with the room. Long line for the waffles. You can get continental or wait until 8:30 and get a complete breakfast. Pool is very nice. Has a snack/drink/beer/gift shop with reasonable prices.... More

We had a great time on the island. And we met another family from near by who we spent lots of time with. Great memories. Now for the hotel... We had major pluming problems ever time we used our toilet. The staff was very nice, but the hotel needs some updates and fresh paint thru out. And not to forget... More

Hotel was okay for the price and staff was friendly. Great location close the the beach. The room was clean and the beds not to bad. There was a hot breakfast (eggs, sausage, biscuits, gray, waffles) but it was only available from 8:00-9:00 which causes everyone in the hotel to try and eat at one time and there's not enough...

Hotel is in a great location. Hotel is a bit over crowded and may need an upgrade soon especially their mattresses. I was basically sleeping on the springs. Other than that it's in a convenient location from the beach and having a kitchen is very convenient as well ".
