We stayed here the night before departing on a cruise. It is in a great location, close to the airport and crusie terminal. They have a free shuttle from the airport and it is a short ride to the hotel. The rooms and building nothing spectacular but clean and well kept. The bed was comfortable and they have a good breakfast selection. It is within walking distance of stores and restaurants. If you forgot anything there is a Dollar Tree, Windixie and Walgreens a couple blocks away. It is a little bit of a walk but you can also walk to the beach. I would definitely stay here again.
If you are going to the cruise port have the front desk call a cab for you. It was only $6.00 for a cab ride to the port and $8.00 per person for the shuttle that the hotel advertises. The front desk clerk was nice enought to point that out for us and call us a cab.
