Better off in a hostel
Posted Jan 28, 2017
Unfortunately, this hotel does not give quality for the price. The buildings are old and under renovation, which is great that improvements are coming, but at this time the hotel is too expensive for what is offered. We had a big issue with an awful smell in both the room and hall outside upon check in, but even ignoring that the room was painfully small, the bathroom tiles had scum stains from age that made it look unclean, the WiFi was inconsistent, and the breakfast (mandatory to pay for as part of the resort fee) was subpar considering the cost (ie, bagels, bread, cereal, oranges, grapefruit, banana, and coffee).
But on the positive!! The location is great, very near the beach/ocean drive and some great restaurants. The area is under construction at this time but is nonetheless a nice area. And the staff are very lovely, accommodating and considerate, though they do seem to be understaffed at times.
I would not stay here again personally, but if you find a good price compared to other options and are planning to spend as little time in the room as possible, it may be OK. To each their own!
