We had a lot of space and the staff was super helpful and very pleasant! The bed was slightly hard but for our short term stay it was fine!

Hotel Gardenia was fabulous! Very charming, clean and our host went out of his way to make sure we were well taken care of. The beds were comfortable and had nice sheets. The pool was refreshing. We’d stay there again in a heart beat.

So charming and the beds were great! It was comfortable and had all the amenities we needed( and more) great deal for the price! The young gentleman who greeted us and checked us in could not have been more gracious!

The property looks very nice and is well kept. It’s very clean and nicely landscaped. They call these hotel rooms, but I say they are more like condos, they have a private bathroom, a kitchen and bedroom. The condos are very well decorated and furnished. Management installed a new refrigerator in one of the apartments we stayed in. So why not an Excellent rating? Their check-in sucks, if you arrive after hours. We notified them beforehand that we would arrive late in the evening. They emailed self check-in instructions for obtaining the room key from a lockbox. My friend and I arrived around 1 am. We followed the instructions but the lockbox would not open. We tried for nearly 45 minutes but IT WOULD NOT OPEN. I called the manager, who is NOT located on the property. No answer. I tried again and again, leaving frantic messages. No response. I knocked on other condo doors. Only one person opened their door, a French man who spoke some Spanish but very little English who my bi-lingual friend understood to say knew nothing about operating a lockbox. We were exhausted, sweaty, and now homeless. We resolved to sleep in the rented car—two vulnerable ladies in a foreign country in the middle of the night. We called the manager again; this time she picked up the phone and told us how to gain entry to another condo for the night. Turns out there’s an additional step to opening the lockbox that they failed to inform us about! Also I didn’t like that we had to change rooms 3xs!
