In a word - DISAPPOINTING! No attention to detail, rude bartenders, inattentive wait staff, careless room service, average food, and HOW DOES A BEACH RESORT RUN OUT OF TOWELS - TWICE??? And I wouldn't wash a picnic table with those towels. They ended up using bath towels for the beach. No wonder a couple only gets two bath towels TOTAL. Note to management - even Motel 6 gives you complementary coffee!! I was told that since we requested a king size bed, EVEN THOUGH WE REQUESTED A PREMIUM ROOM, we were given a lower level room because there are no premium rooms with king beds!! The large pool across the street at the newer section had a swim-up bar, which was closed all day!! Never mind that the pool did not look terribly inviting anyway. At a hotel with a total of 450 rooms, there is ONE computer for guests to use - with NO printer! Try printing your boarding passes!! I had to save the file, go to the front desk, find someone who had some inkling of computerize, have the file transferred, and then finally printed at the front desk. When we were leaving, we were SO aggravated that I refused to call for a bellhop (it only took 4 calls to get extra pillows, which turned out to be small throw pillows without covers) so we lugged the luggage ourselves. Fortunately we had a ground floor room with a patio and a beautiful view of the ocean - about the only positive of the entire stay. When we got to the front desk to check out there was nobody there, and several people milling about waiting. I had to go to the supplies room to get someone to take care of us.I wasn't sure if they had merged all of our records, since we had to change rooms due to a leaking ceiling, clogged sink and non-working lamp. Needless to say we will not be going back to this hotel - EVER!
