The wave rider pools were closed. Asked about the condo they had for sale. The lady at the front desk knew nothing and did not know who to refer us too. If your thinking of staying a night forget about it, this place is useless.

There are some terrible reviews of this place on trip advisor! These rooms are individually owned so I guess some rooms are worse than others. I found a good deal on Craigslist for this hotel. Thank God the owner is awesome! My room is so clean! When we got here, she was cleaning the floor on her hands and knees!!...

I booked through HomeAway It was unit 312 and I very unhappy with the quality that I thought I getting. The room was very average at best. The air conditioning was very poor. It only let the kitchen area be comfortable. The rest of the unit was barely bearable. I seen 4 water bugs through the course of the week....

I read reviews and though it was just a few picky people. Hopefully this saves someone from this pit. Where to start? First I missed the wifi is only in lobby. Lobby closes at 9. Forget any night action on the laptop. There is no phone in room. They are listed as full kitchen. There wasn't a single plate, cup,...

First I'd like to say I have stayed in dated hotels to save a buck and had no problems. I'm dissapointed trip adviser would even let anyone rent these rooms from wave rider. Someone from somewhere needs to condemn this place. Whenever I get to a hotel and enter a room I check the corner of the mattresses for bugs...
