Disappointing
To start off, we tried to call the hotel to speak with a manager in regards to changing our booking dates because my boyfriend was pulled to go on another job days before our trip. We couldn’t get ahold of the manager nor did they call us back. We didn’t want our 3 night non refundable stay to go to waste to I went without him. Before I arrived I called to ask if I could check in thirty minutes early and they said they didn’t even have the room I booked available. The representative then looked again and found one. When I got there they weren’t as welcoming as their website claims them to be. I didn’t receive any information on anything(breakfast/parking/pool, etc.) and when I got up to my room.. I didn’t even get the city view I paid for and that the front desk said they had for me. I got the view of the other side of my hotel which meant I had to keep my blinds closed the entire time unless I wanted everyone looking in. The pool was not heated, there isn’t a vending machine, the splash bar is not open for dinner.. all stated on the website. When I checked into the hotel she asked for my card for incidentals(no big deal. Nothing new) The morning after, I already had 2- $50 charges to my card. When I called the front desk they at first said it was because I swiped my card twice. When I informed her I hadn’t used that card except for the check in, she then said that was their bad. Their system charged me twice for incidentals.

Rooms are very well-equipped, quiet and clean. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel, overall has a modern vibe which is very appealing. The location is absolutely perfect. Nice restaurants within walking distance and a short drive to great beaches. I will definitely be staying here again!

I was mistreated by the bartender staff at the pool I was denied service just because I went inside the pool area with my small 9 pound dog and my kids waiting to get a room since the room was not available. I tried calling front desk reaching a manager I had to send an email but while I had paid for the day at the hotel I was not able to enjoy it couldn’t order anything because she said she wouldn’t give me any service if I was with my dog when this is a pet friendly hotel and the front desk staff send me off to wait by the pool area with my kids until the room was available the dog at no time did it bark or bother anyone the dog was pretty much a ghost but she decided to call security on us and gladly the security was helpful and helped us with getting a room quick to be able to put my puppy but at the end the whole day I was denied services and no one did anything
