Overall, we had a great experience! We had a decent room. We were upset at first because the pictures on Expedia made the hotel look fabulous. In fact, we think the pictures of the rooms were of the resort rooms not the hotel room. We were also put in a room adjacent to the laundry room, although it did not end up bothering us at all. ...

Very nice hotel. Close to the water. Had a room with a patio that was connected to the pool. It was so nice to walk right outside the room and be at the pool. We also really enjoyed the dive in movie. The only complaint is we got 2 spicy margiritas at the firefly it was the worst ever and 12$ a piece. We will definitely stay here ...

Good location, Nice groundsGreat location near plenty of restaurants, convenience stores and a grocery store. Beach is only like a block away. Bay views are nice but it's not very private on the bay front ground floor because of the many bikers and joggers that pass by. Staff was helpful and accommodating. We never tried any ...

Everything was great. Breakfast was better than I thought it would be and I loved the room and the fact that the pool was heated to a perfect temperature. However, I was a bit upset that the spa was not working, which is one of the main reasons why I go to certain hotels. That was the only problem. ...

The pool was nice and kid friendly. The morning breakfast ...
