We were told the wrong hours for breakfast so I can't comment on it. I would stay there again if we cruise out of...

The hotel staff were awesome! The room was clean and spacious. The bed was a little firm. The linens and towels were clean. They do offer free continental breakfast. About 10 minutes away from Sea World and Mission Beach. I will certainly be staying here again.

50 Year traveling salesman review. Average to poor cleanliness. Mediocre breakfast with cramped conditions. Good location does not make up for average to poor motel. Ancient Fat TV with horrible reception. About $100 but only worth $50.
