We stayed at Grotto Bay the first week of March (through Orbitz). Not too many guests at that time. They are in the process of renovating rooms, but we didn't stay in one. We stayed in Rm 534, a third level, king bed with view of the bay (and airport). Agree with previous review that the room smelled a bit musty and moldy, but not unbearable. The bathroom looked renovated. The location is <1 M from the airport, but airport noise is not an issue. The taxi ride was $10. The bus also stops at the airport, but you can't bring luggage aboard.
Make sure to book your dinner reservation with the front desk. Even though dining room may not look busy, they seat you in back if you just walk in. It was OK food, nothing too spectacular, and overpriced (as anywhere else). Not much choice nearby within walking distance aside from Swizzle Inn down the road.
We went the a grocery store (W&S) for breakfast and lunch supplies to save money (in room cube fridge came in handy).
At this time of year, the pool was open but empty and the poolside bar was closed. Staff was friendly. The bus stops in front of hotel and was easy to use (3 d pass for $28). The bus pass also allows you on the ferry.
Within walking distance of hotel, there are also nice trails in the nature preserve near the hotel.
If I were to go back, I would stay here again.
