After a nine hour drive, the staff was courteous and quick to get us checked into our room. We found the room to be very clean. Queen beds were very comfortable, the refrigerator kept our waters cold and the tv entertained us while we snuggled. The bathroom was clean, however the caulking at the shower was falling apart. The towel... More

I booked this hotel prior to a cruise from Port Canaveral, and I'm happy I did. The hotel is just minutes from the port and is close to many restaurants both national and local. It is also close to a CVS and a Publix supermarket for last minute items. Our ground floor king faced the courtyard and pool and we... More

I don't think there is enough room here to say how happy we were with this location. Let me start with what some would consider a negative. This is an older location and does show a little age, a little dated. That being said it is a very clean property. The water pressure in the show was harder than most... More

The front desk was friendly and professional. The staff member had good people skills and cared about me as a guest. The rooms are clean. May sure you ask for a room with a flat screen TV. The breakfast is limited but the coffee is good.

We stayed one night here pre-cruise, on a transfers and accommodation package. The motel could use an update - some of the AC units were leaking on the outside paths and shower curtains in the bathroom but for one night it was fine, especially its location. There are plenty of dining options around to suit any budget - why I... More

Worst bed I ever slept in! The breakfast was terrible, stale toast! They requested a credit card even though I used a CLC card. Somebody there stole my card info and charged over a $1000 on my credit card. That's the only place I used it! DON'T USE YOUR CARD THERE!

This is a great hotel to stay at. They are remodeling the rooms and they are great. We stay here when we are going on a cruise. Free breakfast, very friendly people and free shuttle to and from cruise ships. We leave our van here, and pick it up on our return

Stayed here on a Saturday night while at a party on the island. Quiet hotel. Friendly staff. Clean. Love they provide coffee pot in room and mini fridge. Easy access ice machines and vending machine. A lot of restaurants close by. Pool area looked good though we didn't use. Also have free breakfast
