my family of 5 stayed in an oceanfront double suite for 1 week. the rooms were really clean. the shower pressure was awesome. maid service came and everyday. the staff was so nice. they had very reasonable rates. my only complaint was that the elevators were really slow and had no air conditioning in them. we will be going back next summer. I only wish the doublesuite was ocean front instead of side view.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It was off season but everyone was very friendly. It was within 5 mins of the airport. I had an oceanfront & the view was ideal. Would definitely stay again.
Didn't use the pools but they looked very nice....loved the parking garage...just very hard to back out of spaces

My husband and I stayed at the hotel from 9/28/12 to 10/7/12. The service and facility was outstanding. I especially want to thank the staff who helped us adjust our reservation on a moments notice. Thanks to Andy, Rachelle, Allen, Albert and Nate from the front desk for accommodating us and making us feel so welcomed. Thanks to Ursula from housekeeping who always did the extras. And thanks to pool guys and bartender Chris. All staff was friendly and willing to help. I will recommend this hotel in the future to others and we will visit again. Carol Valley

Room Tip: Ocean front suites are a must and anything above the 5th floor to get a good view of the ocean.

all in all it was a nice hotel,read alot of reviews regarding slow elevators...omg..slow is not the word,almost better using stairs,the swim up bar and there bartenders made our vacation,it would be nice to have someone grilling something poolside...it,s not a brand new hotel,as many down there are not,so that needs to be remembered,for the $$...its a good value...but again kudos to the swim up bar and the bartenders,the location is great,beach acess is great..I would return>

My husband and I stayed here over the weekend for a last minute vacation trip. The hotel was nice,clean and well kept. At first we had a double ocean view room with a bad view of the ocean. The front desk changed us to an double oceanfront room with no problems. It had a beautiful view. The hotel was within walking distance of the Family Kingdom amusement park.
The hotel has no real restaurants. All the breakfast and other meals are next door at their sister hotel the "Captains Quarters". The breakfast buffet was good. Not the best, but very pleasing and filling. Also, I was very impressed with the water pressure in the bathroom and kitchen. Most hotels the water pressure is very low or soft. The water force in the shower and faucets were strong, not too strong, but perfect. I was also surprised with the temperature of the swimming pools. For it to October, I thought the pools would be freezing, but the warmth of the pools were wonderful. My family and I would definitely stay here again.

I've stayed here a loooooong time ago. It's a great location, clean, friendly and not too expensive. The room was comfortable. The king bed mattress was a bit hard. The murphy bed was great for the kids.

The Hotel is updated and nice rooms on the oceanfront side anything else is a let down in rooms! The staff can be rude! It is a Hotel that is about a 2star. We had maintenance make themselves at home in our bathroom while we were at the Beach.. We were not notified they would be in our room, much less repairing the shower ceiling! We were furious and demanded to be moved to another room. The beds are horrible to sleep on. Just not worth your money! Skip this Hotel...
