The hotel was clean and the staff exceptional. Pat saw that any and every need for our family reunion was personally attended to. Pleasing a 100 people would be a challenge to anyone - Pat set the bar for customer service

Went for Wine Fest. Only needed that stay one night. Great view, clean room. Terrific location. Staff was extremely helpful. Would have liked a second mirror in the room but that was the only downside.

My girlfriend And I stayed at The Commander for Sun Fest 2016 in an Ocean View Suite. Great location for everything including morning sunrises, catching the trolley to and from Sun Fest, Grottos Pizza, Starbucks nearby. The suite was recently updated and very clean. The staff were friendly and courteous. Great place. We will be back.

My husband, two young children, and I stayed at The Commander for just one night for my husband's family reunion. It was fantastic! First, all of the staff members we met were friendly and helpful. In fact, my son just loved Big Joe! He was the door man on duty today, and my 6-year-old son couldn't stop talking about him...

I felt safe. Bathroom and bedding nice and clean. Entry ways need painted, doors especially, but this was the end of season. No mirror in room. Only in bathroom. Deck and furniture needed power washed. End of season again. (Cabana room) It was pleasant.
