Phone worked, blow dryer worked. The Bad - Was told all rooms were Non Smoking. Not true. The Handicapped room smelled like rank...

Thank you for your comments as we continually strive to exceed guest expectations. It is true that we are a pet friendly accommodation but only a few units are designated for pets. Had the guest contacted management about these concerns we would have assisted the guest in relocating to another unit. Unfortunately the behavior of others we have no control...

I stay here everytime I visit Port A. Always clean and right in the center of town. You will have to drive to the beach but after a fun day in the sun, you can walk to any nightlife you want and not worry about drinking and driving. Not the Hilton but who stays in their room when you're in...

After the bad/mediocre reviews I was not very happy that this place was the only place that had vacancy when I went to make reservations, but I was pleasantly surprised, when we arrived the office staff was super nice and cheerful, our room ( we got the handicapped room) was very clean and spacious, the AC worked great.
