“Good Choice En Route”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

We chose this hotel the day before we embarked on our cruise. The hotel shuttle from the airport was relatively easy to find after asking two people at the airport for some direction. There's a Winn Dixie walking distance from the hotel, so you're able to pick up last minute items pre-cruise. There's also an alcohol store if you want to buy bottles for your stateroom. The hotel arranged a port shuttle for the following day for $8 pp. Aside from wreaking of smoke in a non-smoking room, we have no complaints.

It does look quite run down from the outside, but in the inside, it is a beautiful hotel. It has an excellent breakfast buffet (Love the pancake machines). I was slightly annoyed when the fire alarm woke me up at 7AM, considering there was no fire or even smoke. After 10 minutes they decided to shut off the alarm. Clean rooms. I loved the bar beside the pool. There was a thunderstorm when we were there and there were Deck Chairs and Sun Umbrellas flying from the large balcony over looking the pool, so probably not the best idea to be outside in the pool during a storm there. Stayed a night prior to our cruise. Never disappointed at a BW.

We spent just 1 night before our cruise. We arrived very late. The front desk person was extremely energetic for it being midnight. Everyone working at the hotel- front desk to room cleaners were extremely friendly and helpful.
Room was in very nice condition. Location was walking distance for shopping and eating
Airport Shuttle service was very good
All in all a good value.

Over priced small rooms with no shuttle available but good location. The location was built like a motel. Good breakfast. The taxi we had to get cost us a extra 30.00 . Never received my son points for this stay.

We stayed at the hotel for two days prior to our cruise and again for two days afterwards. Rooms were comfortable and very clean. Breakfast was supplied each morning consisting of scrambled eggs, sausages, various pastries, bagels, toast, yogurt, pancakes and the normal fruit juices, coffee and tea. The pool was lovely although a little cool. Lots of outdoor seating at the poolside. Internet access was available as well as a computer for guests use. Front desk attendants were very friendly and helpful, especially one young woman named Erica. Location is good, close to restaurants and shopping. MacDonald's next door if you are travelling with kids. Free pick up from the airport and return trip. Also will provide transportation to and from the ports for a very nominal fee. Would I stay here again or recommend this hotel to my friends ABSOLUTELY!
