Pros: Great location, on the beach, plenty room to walk, good place for breakfast, coffee shop staff very good. Glad most of the people have been retained.
Cons: Some rooms need painting, bathrooms need to look better; general improvements to the accommodation.
Ownership has changed hands, and prices have gone up. It seems the condition of the rooms should also improve.

very close to beach. Staff is great.

Posted Jan 26, 2015
Cons: The section I stayed need remodeled. Plaster is cracking, shudders don not work. Carpet is worn out.
The section of hotel I stayed in was out dated. We were upgraded to a ocean view room which was great. The beach is beautiful and well kept. plenty of chairs for all guests. Beach staff was very attentive. Lots of activities to do like chess, ping pong and shuffle bored along with two awesome pools. Must try the lime drink offered in the lobby, it is great.

MOLD, UNCOMFORTABLE BED, ROOM NOT CLEAN

Posted Jan 19, 2015
Pros: The location, pool area and beach view.
Cons: THE ROOM WAS AWFULL!
Location: NEAR ST. ALMONDS CIRCLE
When we arrived late I opened the door to find water dripping on the floor from the A/C vent above. This was a Gulf front beach room. The rug was dirty. The Mold smell was overwhelming. The bath room was not clean. On the plus side, the pool and beach area were beautiful and the restaurant was excellent. Too bad the rooms are so bad. This is a very old facility and the rooms are in need of a major over haul. The price they charged was way too high for what you received.

Adequate but not Elegant

Posted Jan 16, 2015
Great pools for swimming! Restaurant entirely satisfactory. Great location on the beach. Met our basic criteria. Queen size bed would have been better than two doubles. The $25 facilities fee was excessive. The Wi-Fi was a nuisance to sign in every time one turned on the iPad. We will consider a future stay if the facilities fee is reduced

What Lovely People---and immaculate!

Posted Jan 11, 2015
I do not think, after hundreds of hotel check-ins, I have had a kinder or more thorough, considerate welcome than what we received from Sara on check-in. She remained helpful throughout our stay, and the rest of the staff were bright in all senses of the word. The stay would have been perfect, save for the hotel being just a bit out of the way for folks who like to walk everywhere. Other than that, pure gemstone!

Very very old hotel

Posted Jan 7, 2015
The hotel is located in a very good place: right on the beach, next to small park you can do hiking with kids and not far from there evening live is ... but the buildings and rooms are terrible. Old, dirty ... shower was leaking etc ... They keep broken furniture and other junk right at the parking lot.

Nice Hotel On The Beach

Posted Jan 7, 2015
Our room had an ocean view and it was clean and comfortable. Every employee that I met at the hotel was friendly and always helpful. The restaurant in the hotel was also top notch - there was no reason to go beyond the hotel for food.
