Dont't let the pictures fool you. This place is unsafe. Someone is going to get hurt and sue this place. The stairs are falling apart. I tripped and almost hurt myself because the cement is falling off and there is a rubber strip holding it together. The whole property is a mess and likely some code violations. They also nickel...

Very nice rooms, cold AC and friendly staff. Breakfast room was extremely small, couldn't even fit in there to eat. Pool was nice as well and elevator was a plus. Parking was a little tight too but not a big deal. Would definitely go back.

Older hotel but very nice. The staff was helpful and polite. A close distance to most everything. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. We stayed in a king suite over looking the canal. Parking is little cramped. The pool and hot tub are very nice.

We loved our room, our view, and the friendly staff. The only downfall to our trip was when we found shards and large pieces of glass that were left on the floor by the refrigerator.

First thing I noticed about our room: it was filthy. While the furnishings and fixtures looked ok, the floor was very dirty and left our feet black with sand stuck.
