A very nice and updated hotel, about 5 minutes to the beach. I stayed during the week and the pool and all amenities were always available and in working order. The breakfast area was always clean and the self-service buffet was stocked with all options: breads, juices, a hot option that changed daily, and cereals and yogurts. Coffee and teas... More

We spent two night here to unwind and relax by the seaside during our on the road trip to Texas. The hotel looks new, or recently renovated. It's comfortable, with swimming pool, hot tub, a small fitness center. It provides parking and complimentary breakfast. Our room was clean and big, wi-fi working properly. They provide pool towels so you don't... More

Decent enough hotel for the price and within walking distance to the beach. I had a room which faced the pool and that got a little loud at night, but okay overall. Nice buffet breakfast in morning - make your own waffles, cereal, fruits, bagels and muffins, juices and coffee.

The rooms are nice. The elevator is slow. The breakfast buffet is barely edible. That's why I stayed the best western. Plus it's less expensive. I really don't have much more to say other than cleanly rooms. Stay at the best western. I would definitely look in tot I best western first.

A shame a property this close to the water, in a resort community, was not built with balconies. Owners took the cheap route. Rooms are still in good condition, & the staff provides very good service overall. Happy to return. One complaint: this is a "resort" community, so breakfast should be served until 1030A & not 930A.

For a casual beach stay, this will certainly do. It's clean, and close to the beach. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. It's hard to find anything reasonably priced on the beach in Port A. Even the condos/hotels have long boardwalks. So, I recommend staying here and driving to the beach, don't walk. We paid $12 for beach parking pass... More
