We have stayed here before our cruises for several years. We like the location--with the Publix, Walgreens and restaurants within walking distance. Not sure we will do it again. Checked in after 6pm and our room wasn't ready. We were given another room that should not be rented out, ever. It was dirty and very worn. I didn't even want to unpack and was prepared to confront the front desk staff in the am if we couldn't get a better room. We went to dinner. To give the desk clerk credit, when we returned from dinner our room was ready and he arranged help to move us.
The rooms seriously need updating. Nothing has been done to the hotel for the several years that we've been staying there, except to spruce up the lobby (which is nice) and the breakfast area (also nice). I see the same damage around the hotel elevator that I've seen for several years that could have been fixed, but hasn't.
Breakfast was OK--usual eggs, breakfast breads, fruit, juice, coffee, cereal, yogurt.
We didn't use the hotel's transportation this trip, but have done so in the past. We rented a car and the parking was plentiful.
I tried to exit the elevator one morning and the housekeeping services manager was having a very vocal disagreement with one of the housekeepers. No one could exit because the cart was blocking the elevator--the only elevator, I might add. No excuse for having that sort of disagreement in front of the guests.
Housekeeping was not the best. I spruced up our room myself, especially the bathroom, where it was needed and it needed it.
King suites have a fridge and microwave. We used the fridge, but not the microwave. It needed cleaning as did the wall behind the microwave. The coffee should not be in the bathroom, for obvious reasons, likewise the ice bucket.
I voiced my concerns to the woman at the front desk when I checked out. She was not exactly interested. I assume she'd heard it all before.
This is such a great location. I wonder why they don't bother to update the rooms and provide better services? It would be outsstanding then.
