    Amazing Stay

    We stayed at Sonesta for two weeks and can honestly say we enjoyed every minute. Very clean excellent pool. Great happy hour. Great breakfast. Free shuttle to parks. The staff are absolutely amazing. We was there during the hurricane and they made us all feel at ease and are very very helpful. We would definitely be staying here next time we visit Florida. Fantastic x

    Nice place to stay for the price

    I enjoy the 2 bedroom suite but cell signal definitely sucked for tmobile user. Their free wifi is slow. Good room for the price and you're close to everything as restaurants and the attractions. Enjoy

    Great stay

    Great space with lots of room. Would recommend this to anyone especially families. Free breakfast and pool. Walking distance to great food and fun! I own a travel agency (Pulaski Tickets & Tours) and have seen a lot of accommodations over the last 30 years. This is top notch.

    Absolutely Horrible! Mold Infested!

    Hotel is infested with mold. Due to the fact we got in at midnight we stayed in the room 1 night and immediately upon waking told the front desk about the mold issue. Hotel had us switch rooms. They had us check out of the first room and then instructed us to come back after 4 pm to get into the different room. The offered alternately to bring in an machine to suck the moisture out of the first room. They know they have a mold problem! We stepped foot in the second room and smelled the mold, and informed the hotel we could not stay there. They charged us for a second night!
