    Fun time

    We stay at this hotel yearly, usually in March. This time was a nice change. It was very festive with all the holiday decorations. Really neat. Last year we had one of the more recently updated rooms but this time we got one of the older rooms. Definitely needs updating but it was still fine. Bathroom shower head needs updating and toilet took forever to flush but that didn’t ruin our vacation. We think 100-150 is a fair price but they are asking over 300 a night in March so we will look elsewhere this March unless the rates drop. Ana at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. It’s a nice hotel with an island kind of feel. Restaurant and nightly entertainment are great.

    great stay

    Stayed here for 4 nights early November. Great location- about 2 blocks from the beach. We stayed in the Suite- harborside. Really nice deck- over looking the water/harbor. Chairs and tables outside. Nice living room area with large fridge, toaster, coffee maker, etc. Beds super comfortable. Staff at front desk very kind and helpful. We didn't eat at the restaurant, but we stopped for a drink every night and listened to music. Wonderful band playing! Overall, great stay. Close to a few fun restaurants like Pj's, Crabby Bills, etc.

    We loved this hotel!!

    When we checked in Ava greet us with such warmth and hospitality we felt right at home!!! When Russ saw us struggling with our luggage he helped us carry it to our room. And this was just the beginning of our stay!! The hotel is beautiful, clean and close to everything. The food at the restaurant was spectacular!! I would highly recommend this hotel to my family & friends.

    Very friendly staff

    The staff is so nice and accommodating. Every one goes out of their way to help and make sure you’re happy. The rooms need lots of updating but management assured me that is coming soon. Fun place! Nice restaurant and bars in the hotel and also surrounding area. Just a short walk to the beach.

    This place is ok

    We stayed here for 4 nights. It’s clean, but needs updating. The staff is very nice and accommodating. The location is across the beach. The pool was nice and clean. I don’t suggest eating breakfast at the restaurant on the main floor. The price was $13.95 for a continental breakfast.
