My family was at this hotel from 7/16/2011 to 7/23/2011 and we loved it!
I booked my room online and got a great deal for a room with 2 queen beds.
A few days before we left, I got an e-mail telling me that they were waiting on us and that they hoped we would enjoy our stay.This was a nice touch,as far as I am concerned.
Our room was large and on the first floor,right next to the pool gate.We were on the side facing Zaharia's Greek Restaurant.
The motel grounds were very clean and we saw people cleaning them daily.The room was clean,painted nicely and had pretty bedspreads and pictures on the wall. The carpeting was clean and there was no musty, moldy smell that some people said they smelled.
There was a table and chairs in the room and three lamps,as well as a microwave and mini-fridge. There was also a nightstand and a dresser, which held a Bible , phone books, tourist info and hotel layout charts and numbers for assistance.
The bathroom was clean and fresh towels,soap,shampoo, and eye make-up remover were provided by housekeeping staff on a daily basis.
In the vanity/ sink area, there was a 2 cup coffee pot,an ice bucket,and a hair dryer.new packages of coffee,water cups,coffee cups,sweetner,cream ,and stirrers were provided daily.
In the mornings ,you could partake of a free continental breakfast, that offered,bread to toastin their toaster,several choices of cereal,instant oatmeal,snack cakes, bagels, butter,cream cheese,jams,milk,coffee and on some days, orange juice.
their was an ice machine you could use,just by inserting your key card.
they also had a commercial size washer and dryer for guests to use, with a wrought iron bench to sit on while you waited. The price for doing laundry was cheaper than in a washeteria and was fair. you did not have to keep feeding the dryer dimes to get dry clothes.
Walgreens is right next door on one side and Zaharias on the other.next to Zzaharias is a winn dixie and Liquor store. Publix is just down the road,across the street and there are several beach wear, souvenir shops nearby, within easy walking distance. the beach is a 5 minute walk away, but I'd still use my car,because Hwy A1A is very busy here.
The hotel office staff were nice and the decor was pretty with a seashore theme.
a tour shuttle does come by for those who want to use it.
The pool is big and well maintained . I believe it uses saline and not chlorine, to maintain cleanliness. It has a shower ,so you can shower upon entering or leaving the pool. The pool has several resin chairs, chiase lounges and tables with sun umbrellas.It has aprivacy fence and is locked until it opens at 9
;30 and then locked again at 11:30, when it closes.The pool is monitored by office staff,viewing a t.v. screen.There are 2 cameras constantly feeding them poolside views.
I loved it here and so did my hubby and kids. It really felt like a home away from home and we felt safe.
my only problem,was, that I'd like a thicker pillow...but again ,that;s just my personal preference.all bedding was new and clean and the beds were so comfortable.
The only thing,i'd say is that our micro-fridge would not keep ice cream,...but it did work for everything else. we would ddefinately come back, if in the area again and would definately recommend this hotel.it will stay on my GPS list of favorites.
And to my surprize, upon my arrival home,I got an E-mail fromthem,saying how glad they were that we'd chosen to stay there and how they hoped we'd come again. Now that's service.
