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 ".

Awesome hotel to stay in! Enjoyed my stay there! I recommend anyone to stay there! The only problem was the elevator smelled really bad, but other than that I enjoyed it! The Internet on the office computer wasn't working and I needed to print out my tickets to schlitterbahn and they let me use the front desk computer.(: very friendly... More

On the outside you'd think its a great place. And on pictures you think you're getting something else. The king suite does NOT come with a sofa bed. I booked for 4... My wife and 2 boys. We had to share the bed. I asked for a rollaway bed. They were out and they said they'd rent me a blow... More

Stayed here for one Sunday night at the start of our vacation. Price for a room with two double beds was very reasonable. The hotel itself is well kept and reasonably updated. The staff we encountered were two grouchy older ladies that were helpful enough but not the most welcoming crew. Our room was large with a kitchenette with small... More

We arrived Sunday and didn't have a reservation so the front desk rep didn't make eye contact and said she was not in a position to honor our reservation rate yet can go online and see if rate is available.....not happy. So the next day they honored our reservation (it was booked and got a great rate) Thanks Trip Advisor.... More

The Outer appearance of the hotel is attractive. Beautiful water fountain, nice pool scenery. That's what first attracted us. First impression of Desk personnel was a good one, nice and courteous.. Elevator unfortunately smelled really bad and my kids wanted to avoid using the elevator all together. Our rooms were clean however a small cockroach was spotted on the ceiling... More
