Both times my family and I stayed, was fun.... we had a huge 2 bedroom condo, the kitchen appliances were a little outdated, but was clean. Bring your own plates,pots, "kitchen things", and even dish soap.... floor are tile, which was great for the kids bring sand, and watery footprints. Two couches fold out to beds(bring extra sheet and blanket...

Its an older Hotel, that's very apparent, however I was surprised to find the quality of the king suite very good. Very clean and very equipped as far as amenities go. Wifi access in the bedroom and patio area was not very strong, very usable in the living area. Ceiling is very thin and you can hear all movement from...

We had a great stay. Room was clean. Quiet patio facing the marina. It was so nice in the mornings to sit outside and see the marine life in the water. Located near the beach and major places we wanted to visit. No complaints!

The parking lot is very tight. If you go in peak season, be sure to park as close to the yellow post so nobody hits you upon backing up. I say that for a reason. The pool was average and located in the middle of the parking lot. The room was very spacious. I was impressed with the cleanliness, and...

This hotel was a good value during the peak season. While other places were charging double and triple the price for the peak season. The room was comfortable with a nice view of the bay. The location was perfect, close to the Turtle Inc., the beach and Nature and Birding Center.

The room was clean and a good size. The only bad would be that the ac would get the room cold when on but as soon as it turned off the room would get warm. Other than that nice affordable hotel. Another thing I did like was that you can fish on the bay in the back of the hotel,...

By the outside the green color makes the hotel look old and deterirated, i got surprised to see the inside of the rooms, they are in really good shape. I like the hotel, but If I were just pasing by I would not stop to look for a room. I think a light color in the outside will help a...

Front desk employees are great. Very friendly and accommodating. The room was disappointing. Exist fan in bathroom was filthy. The patio was not clean. Bathroom door was worn away at the bottom. The towels where dingy. I don't think I would stay here again. It could be a nice place if the owner would take some pride in the place.

Parking lots too small, no towels in room. Floors felt dirty, pictures on Internet need to be updayed. Not what we expected. I would ask to see rooms before agreeing to sign. It's not the worst, just expected better for my family.

First thing our room was nasty. Hair in the shower and stuck on the shower curtain, and dead roaches. The front desk personal was very rude. We came in 2 cars and according to the office its 1 car per room. That's ridiculous and on top of that they charged me $20 to park our 2nd car on the grass....
