Stayed one night on our way down to the keys. The outside looked a little tired when we pulled up but the inside has been updated and is really well done.
Staff were helpful and friendly at check-in
Room was clean and modern (nice furniture, tv, tile work, granite counter tops) bathroom tub drained a little slow, no biggie.
Staff recommended to get a poolside view because the other side has a lot of road noise.
Pool looked nice, didn't personally use.
Great wifi signal, was even able to get it from my room!
