Overview: Purchased the king bed suite for two Sept 18th, 19th Cruise Package. Not sure why this hotel only has two and a half stars it deserves much much more. The value can`t be beat; literally its a steal.
Value: 109 usd. + tax for the cruise package gives a total of one nights stay pre cruise, clean rooms, a shuttle to/from the airpot and a shuttle anywhere within 4 miles, continental breakfast (with a server), a gym, free wifi, pool.
Room/accomodations: Originally we were given a handicapped king suite that was readily available and it was immacualte with a bonus extra large walk in shower and huge bathroom- unfortuantely there wasan issue withthe lock on the door a few hrs but this was resolved quickly and we moved to a king study which was also immaculately clean. The air and heat controls were good. The bed is amazzzzzzinnnggggly comfortable. The room came with a couch set, large desk, flat screen tv and a mini fridge with lots of storage. No issues with noise and we were on the first floor near the main back door.
Location: Rocky Point is a little secluded; beautiful but not much around in terms of shopping but the shuttle makes itpossible if you are not driving to get around to malls etc and restaurants - i.e, bahama breeze is located two parking lots behind the hotel and is soooooo good....must try if your staying there.
Continental Breakfast: very good - bagels, toast, all kinds of coffee, tea, cereal, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal bars, waffle station - the eggs and sausages were questionable but not horrible. There isalso a nice lady who will set your table and basically there to assist etc. To the server on the morning of sept 19th (im sorry i dont remember your name) thanks for being so cheerful and accomodating; we both appreciated your help.
Shuttle Service: The shuttle can be a little swamped at times but the drivers were very accomodating, we weredropped off at the west shore mall and picked back up promptly, wereable to stop off at wallgreens and pick up our wine etc and hewaited, on our return from the cruise we waited 20 min top(but we didnt call either) - we were also able to leave our luggage in the front desk room and go out on our own due to a late flight and we were still given a shuttle to theairport later on in the day.
Front Desk service:
The girls at the front were very nice and professional; however they seemed quite swammed at times as only oneperson was working at a time - there is clearly lots of paper work etc plus answering the phones but overall they do a great job - thanks for all your hard work .
All in all a great choice; hope the reviews go up for this great stay!
