2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Seemed neglected. The television remote didn’t work due to the fact the batteries had corroded in it. The coffee maker was on a pull-out shelf that couldn’t be pulled out due to the way it was plugged in which rendered it useless. The staff was friendly. I suspect there just isn’t enough of them to take care of the place no matter how hard they work. Corporate HQ needs to fix that.

5/5 Excellent

Fun night!!!
We stayed here to break up our trip to Florida. It was a fun busy environment right outside the hotel so that was convenient if your looking for a lot to do in walking distance! The bathrooms provided little privacy bc of the sliding door with gaps in between and no fan. We went and had a couple drinks at the hotel bar. The bartender was very nice! We had fun at The Hive playing duck pin bowling too! Unfortunately they charged my card for the room when my card wasn’t even the primary card on file. I had to offer mine for incidentals which we though was weird bc my husbands was already on file and we had prepaid before we even got there. So I had to call and get that refunded. But the manager was nice about it. All in all we had a nice time!!

Our stay was okay. Staff was friendly and bar was nice. Overall the hotel was extremely small. Our rooms could’ve been cleaner upon arrival. I noticed spots in the sheets and gunk on the shower doors.
