    Good fun!

    Excellent location!! Our stay was just what we were looking for. The service could have been improved as I feel that we were “bothering” front desk employees every time we asked for something. Otherwise, all was well.

    The location was perfect! We could walk to all the places we wanted to go. Everything else was just a short drive. My only complaint was i didnt see a shower to rinse off when coming off the beach.

    It was nice having a kitchenette in the room. The beach access was convenient and the pool was clean. The pillows and mattress were comfortable. However, the bathroom was small and it was overpriced for a hotel room.

    Ok but expensive!

    Last minute decision to stay here. Our other plan didn't work out. Beds are comfortable and the room seemed clean. The only thing we didn't like it that the outside doors don't lock and anyone can walk down hallways. Also its very sandy in hotel. The hotel needs a water station downstairs for people to spray off before entering the hotel.

    Wouldnt reccommend for the price

    Overpriced, not clean, and not updated. Pool was closed and they did not care to inform you as reservations were being made nor did they discount the stay. Overall, the lobby was the only clean part of the hotel. Rooms, parking lot, immediate beach area, and indoor pool area were consistently filthy throughout the stay. Neighboring hotels seemed much nicer and the same price.

    Wonderful stay!!!!!

    We had no idea that this was the first weekend that this place was open back up for business. Taking the fact that everyone was getting back in the swing of things, it was wonderful....... the girl, Ashley that checked us in was the sweetest thing ever, she went beyond measure to help us with anything we needed, even giving us her parking space when the parking lot was full. Will definitely be back!!!!!

    Beach bummer

    We arrived a little early 2pm were advised no early check in which we accepted no problem but being on the road i asked to use restroom and no the hotel is not open until 4 ok they said we can return at 3 check in but return at 4 to get the room key we asked for oceanside but informed that upgrade would be 150.00 for 3 nights no thanks it was apparent after staying at hotel those rooms were not rented at all we started off on wrong foot right away for satisfying the customer so we may use this place again well this hotel is not ready to be a great resort hotel spend a little extra money not much mind you and reward yourself with a pleasant experience there were other things mind you like air conditioner had to be repaired so room was hot until repair could be made the toilet handle stuck often and would stay running i think you get my message this hotel not up to hotel.com standards

  • 2.0.Poor

    The place was closed down when we got there. I recieved no update of the situation from Hotel.com and when I talked to the Manag / or owner I met in the parking lot, she informed me she had notified all thebooking agencies they were closed due to Hurricane Sally. I am very disapointed with Hotel . Com . We tried and got no answer and ended up using a AAA agent to find lodging. Sorry but you all get a failing grade here.
