    The price was worthy for what it offers. It is a 3 stars hotel and for its category is upper to standard. Staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. Rochele, Maurite and Maritza made our stay very pleasant!

    Good day, I just booked this hotel using Priceline express deals. I was extremely excited after looking at the pictures online until I read the reviews, especially since Pricelines Express Deals are non-refundable! I recently had a horrible experience with another hotel in Cocoa Beach and I am praying that I don't have any issues at this establishment. How can I ensure that I receive a nice and clean room that looks like the pictures online!?
