I am not sure what some people were expecting at this hotel. Reading many of the reviews I almost feel like I must have stayed at a different hotel! Our room was very clean. I brought my own cleaning supplies and didn't need to use them. The sheets, bedspreads, everything was clean, dust free, and not stained. The TV in the bedroom was small but we weren't there to watch TV and this didn't bother us. Housekeeping was very efficient, and were at our room before 10am. I once asked if she could come back later and she said ok, and when we got back from the beach at 1pm our room was cleaned. If she didn't have enough clean towels she would get them and bring them back promptly. The front desk was helpful as well with supplies like coffee filters which we forgot to bring.
The breakfast in my opinion was just fine and the portions were adequate for my family and I have three teenage sons. The room size was great for my family of five. The boys got the bedroom and we had the murphy bed which was big enough, clean, and comfortable. There were plenty of extra pillows and blankets in the closet in the bedroom. I liked that there was a living room door so we could close off the living room and pretty much have our own bedroom at night. The bathroom was small, but manageable. I didn't see one single bug, nor any signs of them.
The pools and hot tubs were clean, and there were always towels available. I loved that there were two cornhole sets and the short walk to the beach was awesome. We had a beautiful view of the ocean from our balcony and we never waited more than a few minutes for an elevator. Every staff member was polite and spoke to us, even in the elevator. There was sand and some wetness in the elevator. If this bothers you then I would recommend not staying on the beach. I don't know how you would avoid this issue with people coming and going from the pools and ocean.
One thing that bothered me was that the fridge opened towards the bedroom not the kitchen and since you couldn't have the fridge open and walk through it made it more difficult to get in and out of it than it had to be. The other issue is parking, and quite honestly the only reason why we will consider a different location on our next visit. The parking garage is so tight, it is so stressful trying to navigate it. There weren't always spaces on our floor so we'd have to try to keep squeezing up the tight ramps, and even though we were driving an SUV with a large wheel kit we were denied oversized parking. If you are driving a compact car this wouldn't be a problem. Overall we had a very nice stay and would have rated this place a 5 if it weren't for the parking.
