"arrived after dark and left in the morning. Were given room with a view and charged."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
When I made reservation. I refused with a view because I knew we would not see anything and we didn't want to pay extra but I got it anyway and was charged accordingly. Paid $40 for shuttle. Had to wait over an hour in cold, windy weather in clothes appropriate for a cruise. It was miserable. All the people waiting were irate.

"Great place to stay good customer service great location."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Great place to stay good customer service great location. However I am not happy about having to book through a third party. Which is the way the hotel told me I had to do. The third party took advantage of us and charged us double for the room it was not worth 300 plus a night if it were a resort villa maybe but not for no normal hotel room I was told I was getting a villa but I was given a double queen room. Not sure ill book with any hotel that makes me go through a third party anymore I did sirbnb last month and that's worth the price.

"Vacation gone wrong."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Staff was not helpful at check in. Loud construction going on all day in parking lot. Hallways were dirty. Garbage bins overflowing with garbage. Room furniture was dated and beat up. Promised ocean views we looked at a roof with air conditioning vents. Promised a free breakfast we did not get it until we complained. Bathroom was incredibly small and outdated. Heard similar complaints from other patrons. Never coming back.

"Great Location, Nice Room and Super Staff"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I had a lovely stay there. The location is right on the beach and was wonderful. The room also had large drawers. I also appreciated that although there was a full counter in the bathroom for getting ready (a lady needs the space for stuff), there was also a second full counter and mirror with outlets outside the bathroom Super! Lastly, the staff was amazing! I had a few issues such as almost losing my car keys and they were super helpful and even offered to run to the grocery store to pick something up for me another time. Highly recommend this hotel!
