My family chose to stay here for our vacation after reading reviews. Overall, we were not disappointed. Some of our group drove in from Georgia and my husband, daughter and I flew in from Texas. It is very close to the hotel. They have a complimentary shuttle bus to the hotel. We called them when we got to baggage claim and only waited about 5-10 minutes.
We arrived at the hotel around 3pm and they were able to accommodate our request for a room with our family members that had already checked in. Check in took less than 5 minutes and we were on to our room. We had a king bed with small sofa & desk area. Very good size of room for our 11 month old daughter to walk around and play in. The room was clean. We had a small refrigerator and microwave as well.
The pool area is nice. The breakfast buffet was good at $11 - you can have omelettes made and waffles. They had free cookies in the evening. They also sold Starbucks there as well.
The Thursday evening when we checked in, they were having a small event outside with the other two hotels next door and hotel guests were allowed to attend. Free food, drinks, games, & fun. We won free beach towels. Good time.
Guests were also allowed to use the parking garage for free by using your room key for access.
My only complaint was that when we left for the beach Saturday morning, we expected to return to a clean room to shower and rest. We left around 9am & returned about 2:30pm. Our room was still as we left it. No clean towels so we had to ask the maid service down the hall. She apologized at least. After we had showered, I called the front desk to have someone clean our room. Two hours later no one had come. As we left out for dinner, I told the front desk again. Our room was clean by the time we got back.
Everything else was great and I would definitely stay here again.
