Old school Florida! Clean and comfortable. Beautifully updated pool with new comfortable lounge chairs and fluffy towels. New ice cream truck and hammocks. Can have rental bikes delivered and picked up at the hotel. Staff was superb, friendly and helpful. Nice outside lounge area and sandy floor bar in front. Really a great stay, we'll be back!

The check in staff and cleaning staff are excellent..Personable and care especially for a very friendly lady from Canada. Location is excellent for the price and good value. The bar out front should be offering happy hour like the rest of Duval, so only bought a couple drinks and moved on. Overall, a very pleasant stay...glenn crouter

Although this property is 1 block from Duval Street, it is located at the other end of Duval from where all the Fantasy Fest fun occurs and is a very long walk.
