Everything looked newly renovated. Grounds have potential, but not that nice yet for the price. Paid extra for gulf view. Not worth it from room 302. That's really the only negative. Bed was comfy. Color scheme and decor were nice.

We had a great room, the hotel has been redone and the rooms had a light airy feel to them, beds and pillows were very comfortable. I booked online, so didn't get a water view but since we were visiting friends that didn't matter to us. The balcony was perfect for having my morning coffee on. The bathroom has plenty... More

Ias I said to the front desk, the hotel has to be well cleaned. The price is not in relation to the services and the cleaness. It is s pity because the harbour view is pleasant and the room big and well decorated.

The room was clean with good linens, bed, bath, etc. Tile floor with no rugs though I guess that's good for sandy area. Close to restaurants, some shopping. Right at marina. Nice sunset view if you walk out to the point. No beach but bar and shelter at the point. Nice pool and hot tub. It looked like they were... More

Pros: Grounds are nice despite needing some maintenance. Direct access to marina. Cute but minimal room decor. Cons: Understaffed. Front desk manager rude and incompetent. Room not serviced prior to arrival or for entire length of stay. Expect to be told by the front house manager that you're lying about room issues, especially if requesting your room to be serviced,... More

I was very confused about the wording of our room advertisement. Balcony with a view, was a balcony looking at the parking lot. The bedding and room very comfortable. Shower was somewhat unclean, but overall room was clean. Staff were friendly.
