Great stay

My daughter and I stayed here twice for her swim meets. Excellent location - close to the YMCA, beaches, downtown, mall. Restaurant/Publix right next door. Rooms were clean, breakfast was great, breakfast area was large and clean. Loved the pool and spa.

Not what I expected

This was certainly a lower grade hotel. The rooms were clean and the parking was off street, but crowded. It was quiet, considering it was on the main thoroughfare.

Nice place to stay

Everything was great until about 10:30 PM. There was some kind of animal (I prefer not to dwell on what it might be) scratching the wall and running behind the wall behind the nightstand.

Repeat Customer

Love the location, full breakfast, pool area, pool bar, and staff. Shuttle to the beach is a plus when parking is limited. Gym is adequate. The beds were a little uncomfortable, but we managed. The in room fridge and microwave were very helpful.
