We had stayed at the Reef before in the past. It is an older hotel that needs a lot of updating. Everything was clean and they now allow small dogs for extra charges. We would stay again. Friendly and competent staff.

Checked in this past weekend for bike fest room smelled very stale. Cheettos on the stained filled couch. How could housekeeping not clean these? Kitchen lights did not work, bathroom door didn't shut all the way. Such poor condition overall, it was disgusting. In need of repair. Would never stay there again especially at $200 per night. Don't waste your...

Had a reservation at another place that turned out to be really bad, unclean. the Reef stepped up and helped out when in a bind with my family members. Comparatively was clean, safe, and well kept. After renovations will be nice to see how it turns out. The only negative i heard was that the wifi was not great.

The people that work at this place are very nice and accommodating and go out of their way to help you. The rooms could use a little its a very nice budget friendly place to take a family and I plan on going again.

DEFINITELY NOT even close to 3 stars! Our room wasn't ready until 5:30. Once we got in our room, the bathroom was very old with patches on the wall and ceiling. Very outdated. We will not be going back.

We stayed here in February. We were supposed to have a king size bed but were informed that we should have booked thru the hotel and not this site. They said there weren't any king sized beds available. Also asked for the military discount but again, since we didn't book thru the hotel directly, we were denied that discount. The...

Currently staying here and I never write reviews but it is so bad I felt like I had too... First we arrived late and they didn't have our room we reserved so instead of a queen bed we received 2 full sized. Not the biggest deal if it would have stopped there.
