This is a very, very basic, no-frills hotel. The room (419) was clean, but the fridge door had been bashed and the bathroom tub and door need repairs. The bed is up against one wall, making it difficult to get in and out of. For the price, some major updating is needed. Staff is friendly and helpful. I'd stay here...

The room was fairly clean, not sure what was spattered on the wall across from the shower. The HVAC was way too loud, ran on one speed. Pool too close to hotel with poor location for the pump that also sounds like a jet engine. Why would you allow smoking in the pool area at a smoke free hotel.....hello? Friendly...

Thank you for a great stay, our queen suite was a great room for us. Staff was helpful. Location was good, near to shopping, beach and church. Loved having a kitchen in our room, with place settings and cooking utensils.

Pool area has limited sun and too few lounges. Noise cover over pool pump would be beneficial.Area adjacent to hotel great for walking and running. Hotel staff always available and helpful. Quiet neighborhood and no traffic noise.

As we only stayed for one night, I was not all that pleased with the bed. The size and layout of the 'suite' we had was great and was very clean. I wish that hotels would offer 'soft or firm' options on rooms - it's such a problem when traveling to find a good nights sleep. This location was great...

Clean rooms, hallway was a little less cared for and the pool does not receive much sunlight. The bed was against one wall and small. The sitting area was in good condition, but there was some problems with the bathtub that could have been repaired fairly easily. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially the daytime manager. He went...

My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks until our seasonal rental was available. The room was clean, quiet and had the basic amenities to keep us comfortable. The location was great for us...close to the beaches. The staff was super helpful and friendly.

The queen bed was comfortable; however, one side was up against the wall so that no one could get off the bed on that side at all. They need much softer towels and washcloths. the staff was very friendly and it was a nice quiet place to stay a couple of nights. However, there aren't many good eating places close...

Furnishings in need of update but 423 was clean and comfortable! I like the angled bathroom design with a view of your Flat Panel. Kitchen was well equipped with a full size refer.

“Bonnie at the front desk provided excellent customer service and will keep guest happy and returning to this hotel. Maid service should be everyday. The room had dust. The coffee maker was dirty. Breakfast should be included with your stay at this high price point.”

“Although the room AC was a loud, the room itself was very comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. Plenty of towels, kitchen utensils, etc. I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family. We loved the "family atmosphere" of the hotel and the incredible staff.”
