I have stayed in countless hotels and boutiques and thus far this is my favorite budget hotel, hands down.
Yes, they did named the doors and the names all seemed to have a London theme to them.
My husband and I stayed in a standard room with a king bed. The room was spacious for 2 people, more then that it becomes too crowded. If you went to the hotel's website and saw the photos of their rooms, that is a great indication of what you are getting and how the rooms look with no touch up or over exaggerations.
The bedding and pillows was not too firm but soft and plush. I just melted into relaxation. It was much needed after a long day at the beach in the sun.
The pool is very big about 8 feet deep (2.456 meters). The tiki bar was cute. The cabanas added a nice touch but the furniture they used needed to be upgraded to a better quality. The pics on the hotel's website is an over exaggeration of the pool and tiki bar area. We had cocktails at the Tiki Bar during their 2 for 1 happy hour (Rum Runners and Bahama Mamas) and they were good and strong, great for my husband.
We ate at Morgan's for the complimentary continental breakfast. There was nothing special about it. The items were fresh and there were plenty of it. However, I also ordered a breakfast sandwich off their menu as well. It was very good and more then enough if you are looking for a light bite to eat. They also had other items on the menu such as pancakes etc.
What the hotel fail short on was sound proofing. You can hear the closing of doors in the hall ways. It sounds like someone was slamming the doors but I have travel enough to know that is such the sound of heavy doors closing in a hallway they echoes and carries the sound.
Also the air conditioner is loud. When it is starting up and stopping it sounds like an old car on life support. Also while the air conditioner is running it is loud. If you are a light sleeper between the doors closing and the loud air conditioner you are going to hate it unless you bring ear plugs. It is easy for me to block out those sounds but not for my husband but with all that going on he was still able to get a good night sleep.
Overall this is a great stay. We will come back and stay at this hotel again and again.
