Hotel definitely has potential but not there yet
Posted Aug 9, 2016
The picture sold us. Looks absolutely beautiful. As you pull up you feel the pictures didn't lie. But as you walk in, you first notice the renovation going on, so part of the lobby is blocked off. That's OK, We don't have a problem with that. Places do have to be renovated. When you head to your room as you get off the elevator the first thing that hits you is the smell. It smells really old. Then you walk down the hallway to your room and you can see the it seriously needs a paint job, particularly the doors. All of them. It doesn't give a very good impression. At this point you start to wonder how the room will be. Then you open the door to your room, and again, the first thing that hits you is the smell. Even worse than when you got off the elevator. We bought Lysol spray to try to disinfect and hopefully get rid of that smell but it would only mask it for a few minutes. As for the room and the decor, it's alright. Could be brought up to date. It is nice and spacious with a living area. We did have a lovely ocean view, & very nice size balcony. The bathroom is also spacious and nice. I just wish cleaners would use something like Tilex to get rid of the mold growing inside the shower area and the grout. We only tried one of the restaurants, Atlantic Grille. Not impressed at all. Food was terrible, service was not very friendly and pretty expensive. We decided not eat anywhere in the hotel again.
