“Fantastic hotel with outstanding service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2011

We normally shy away from paying the price that this hotel was asking, but were very glad that we chose to stay here.

With small children the location was excellent. We spent a day out riding the rides on the boardwalk and were able to walk back to the room whenever needed. It was great to not have to drive for meals, shopping, or entertainment.

The hotel itself was wonderful. The staff at the hotel was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The hotel was very clean. The only two downsides were the shower with low water pressure and the lack of much of a view of the bay.

This was a great hotel and look forward to bringing the family back for another vacation.

Stayed over a Saturday night. Hotel was $299.00 per night and nice. On Sunday went to check out and decided to have breakfast at the Cadilac Bar. On arrival host told us that only breakfast was available at 10:45am. We said thats fine we wanted breakfast. We were sat on the outside patio. The waiter came to the table and noticed the breakfast menus and stated that we could not have breakfast on the patio, we would have to have lunch. We explained about the host and he said it was an error and would bring us lunch menus. We ordered drinks and waited. They brought our drinks and we ordered apps because we weren't hungry for lunch. While waiting the table next to us had their food brought to the table and guess what? they had breakfast!! We spoke with the manager on duty and he stated they could do what they wanted. We cancelled our order and left to check out of the hotel. told hotel front desk what had happened and they asked if I wanted to speak with a manager, I said yes and we waited. Twenty minutes later and the front desk clerk comes and said he was busy and could not meet with us. She left his phone number and e-mail for us to call. Got home and the phone and e-mail were both bogus!!! Left concern on web site for customer service and still no response. Will not stay there again!!!

This hotel is beautiful inside and out. Lots of restaurants to choose from as well as activities. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Balconies with rooms on the waterfront. Saltgrass steakhouse would be my favorite place to eat on the property and then a stroll along the boardwalk water front is very romantic.

room was ok, bed was fair, tv would not turn on so we called front desk . they sent someone to fix it. he got it to turn on but told us not to turn it off or it would not come back on, but of course we turned it off when we went to bed. It would not turn back on the next morning, so when we checked out we told them about it & got a very weak "sorry" . The staff wasnt very friendly or helpful. They really need to work on somethings.
