Location - excellent! - cross the street to get to the posh Montage resort and Treasure Island Beach which are both breathtaking. However, it's much further south from the main part of town but you can easily catch a shuttle there. There is a strip mall conveniently located next door with a grocery store (w/ a Starbucks), a pharmacy, a restaurant and pizza place.
Rooms - definitely due for an overhaul as it is worn and dated and the mattress was too soft to my liking. But I did find it clean.
Facilities - a pool which was clean and heated. The whirlpool was working but could also use some updating.
Service - excellent. Easy check-in. As we were given a permit to park our car in the hotel parking lot, the staff also gave us an extra 2 permits for our extended families who were visiting the beach for the day but not staying overnight. They also freely gave us extra beach towels without question.
Breakfast - free but not very good.
Value - I usually do my own research when looking for accommodations but this time, it was booked by my parent-in-laws as they like to stay here. So for $180 for a Friday night, I'm not sure if that would be considered good value for this area but for me, I found it to be quite expensive for what I was getting.
I'll say that I'd recommend this hotel to a friend...based on the service...but really, I think I'd need to do more research on the hotels in the area.
