little scary

My shower was so hot I couldn't get in it! Had to wash hair in sink. The shower rod was installed poorly resulting in the curtain not being able to close. The breakfast was as minimal as it could get. They didn't even have coffee creamer, much less a to go lid!

It was okay

The first room that we were in, the tv didn't work and they aent the maintenance guy home warly. Both rooms were okay. Nothing great. Not super clean, but the staff was nice. And it was too expensive for what we got.

Poor hotel

Not a great neighborhood. Looked like lots of young people hanging out in lobby. Had computer in lobby, but were told printer wasn't working so couldn't print out boarding passes for next day. We were told we could email to the hotel address and they'd print them out, however, we couldn't get on a network with the lobby's pc to even d that. Shower in room didn't work. Could not get hot water, only cold.

Huge disappointment

For an "airport hotel" they are several miles from the airport, and their airport shuttle was out of service. The cab ride was not cheap. Telephone in the room didn't work. Furniture covered with unidentifiable stains (when you're hoping those stains are blood you know it's rough.) Reception on the TV was fuzzy. Wireless was spotty. Electrical outlets not covered with socket covers. Shower head dangling out of wall. If you're just looking for a place to crash and don't care about quality, there are cheaper hotels that couldn't be much worse. If you do care, spend the extra money and book one of the nicer places. This is one to avoid.

Average

Front desk personnel were average, not so welecoming. Rooms were okay but expected more for a 3 star hotel. Refrig and micro wave were nice to have in the room. Comp. breakfast was subpar. Decent price for what you received and location.

surprisingly good

For such a low price, I was pleasantly surprised by my stay there. Clean room, AC worked great, very helpful staff and even a nice pool to boot. It was right off the highway and there were a few restaurants close by. Excellent value.

convienient to airport & beach

The staff & room were ordinary. I was very dissapointed that they were doing roof & gutter repair to many of the buildings all around the pool area. I was never able to relax by the pool because of all the hammering & construction workers all around the pool area. I realize repairs have to be made but had I known I certainly would not have booked a room!

Gets the job done!

Not a chain hotel, so limited by the owners willingness to fork up money to improve it. The T.V.s were very old and outdated. The same comprable LCD tv can be upgraded for about $300 per room. A HUGE upgrade for a tiny price! The hotel was conveniently located and has a shuttle which wasn't listed as an amenity. The coninental breakfast needs improvement. The staff was very friendly which made the stay at the hotel worth it. Bang for the buck...pretty good!

Weekend Family Getaway

Won't recommend or choose again. It worked while we were there for those 2 days, but it is something like one of those cheap hotels that a person choose because they are too tired to continue to drive. Not recommending and probably would not visit again.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

There are plenty of food choices on this strip, most of them you have to U-turn or turn at the light to get to. I found it more convenient to shop on Military Hwy.
