4.5/5 (386 reviews)

Room was spotless, bed very comfortable, bathroom euro-luxurious. Only problem with resort is casino needs much better ventilation. Must walk through entire main casino area to reach very small non-smoking section. Parking garage can fill up on weekends or on entertainment show nights.

Was disappointing to not be allowed to use the spa steam room as a hotel guest , I have never been denied entry to a hotel spa because I wasn’t getting a spa service , and this place charges a resort fee so I would not come back to a hotel that wouldn’t let me in to use the spa as a hotel guest

For a last minute motel, this place was better than expected. The bathrooms were newly remodeled. The evening reception staff were not very friendly, but it didn’t cause too much of an issue for us on our one night stop. Place is older but seems well maintained for its age.

The location of the hotel was just perfect for our short stay. It was within a walking distance to the pier and its surrounding beautiful sightseeing spots. This hotel will definitely be our first choice in the future when an occasion arises for us to revisit this town.

Bigger room than most with a kitchenette which was nice to have. The grounds were meticulously kept and the staff was very helpful when it came to directions or restaurant recommendations.
