5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Loved the kitchenette feature. Unfortunately, the coronavirus caused the pool and spa to be closed. Very nice facility...would stay here again.

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Location was easy to find with a generous parking lot. One thing, I had difficulty locating the ADA push buttons for the front door. Otherwise, the staff was very helpful with all my needs. The room was as advertised with comfortable furniture and plenty of pillows. I greatly appreciated that I could cook and heat up my meals in my room! I'll come back when I'm in town.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities

It is a lovely building from the outside and the main common areas appear to have been updated tastefully. But, there were some icky spots missed in bathroom cleanliness and no fruit on the breakfast buffet!

Needs to be updated and pool closed when we were there so that was annoying .

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
Good no frills hotel.

The bath tub didn’t drain well while showering. That was the only negative thing. The furnishings in the rooms are a little outdated, but the size of the rooms and the kitchen are great. The main lobby and breakfast area was really nice. Updated and ocean themed. Loved the colors. Calm and peaceful, not crazy patterns. Overall a good hotel.
