Overall the stay was nice the air conditioner was loud and the room would get warm couldn't adjust thermostat for the amount I paid per night I would have expected better but that I didn't go to management with a complaint so it could have been an easy fix.

The condo was great. Clean and comfortable. Only problem was no cell phone reception in back of condo. Difficult to operate the door lock also. Problems with codes at the gate too. Everything else was fine.

Hotel a bit old and a bit run down, in need of updates in many ways. But I was here on business and loved being on the beach at a reasonably priced, quiet, and comfortable place. I slept GREAT and that is a huge plus. Staff was very nice too.

Visited as part of our 50th anniversary trip. Asked for military discount, which at the time was told would be given. Accepted an emailed receipt, not looked at until the following day, showing full rack rate charged, Emailed and asked for difference refund (about $30). Denied. Back and forth with more emails; told I should have shown my military ID...

The room was not worth what we paid. Very outdated. Best thing about the whole lace was the girl at the front desk. She was very knowledgeable. Room was not very clean and they rushed us out at 11:01. Man at the checkout was very rude

The room was spacious and very clean. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Hope to return for another trip in the near future! My son loved the pool. And the beach was just steps from our hotel. Plus the game room was a joy with my son who met a new friend!
